How can I get Canadian permanent residency as a self-employed person?

I have been working as a freelance interior designer for a long time in my home country. I want to relocate to Canada as a self-employed person. I heard there is a special type of visa for people like me. What are the requirements to apply for this visa?

    There is a permanent resident category for self employed ( artistic and sports). To immigrate as a self-employed person, you must: have relevant experience; be willing and able to be self-employed in Canada; meet the program’s selection criteria and meet medical, security and other conditions. Your experience is relevant if you have: taken part in cultural activities or athletics at a world-class level or been a self-employed person in cultural activities or athletics.
