A TIP ON GETTING A SUPERVISOR FOR RESEARCH/THESIS BASED M.Sc and Ph.D
First don't just go and mailed any professor in your department, there is a reason why most of the departments in Canadian Universities list all the names, contact, and research interest for all their lecturers, some lecturers also has website or the website of their lab were they list all their research interest, publications, seminars, previous thesis they supervised, the current work going on in their research lab.
Some (like my department) even go to the extend of listings all their graduate students (both M.Sc and Ph.D) with their thesis topics, their supervisors and publications, some schools also collect the previous thesis and publish them online on their website.
So why am I saying all this?
You need to understand that these potential supervisors need to know what you will be contributing to their current research work or what new research topic you had in mind.
As a student who wants to pursue Thesis based M.Sc or Ph.D, you need to at lest know your research interest or what you wanna Work on when you reach Canada, better still it's always an added advantage if you can get a research topic right before you start contacting potential supervisors, I know to must of us Nigerians this is little bit hard since must of our Universities are not research oriented and so must of us doesn't have background in doing research. But that's where the information on the department website and Google can be of help :
- Go through the website of your department and find about the various lectures in the department, and their research interest, if they have website go through it and see their previous Research, if they work in a particular lab in your department go through the website of that lab and find about the current research goin on at the lab.
- Look for students in the department doing research on your area of interest and their current supervisors
- Check previous graduates of the department and go through their published thesis.
- Search Google about your area of interest and the recent developments going on in that particular area
- Make conclusions about the research topic you want based on the information you find from the research you did above, or atlest know what
Part you are interested in and the recent developments going on in that part as regards to your potential supervisor's research interest.
Note: this can take some days so set aside some days and concrete time for this, after all remember you are going for a research in Canada so you might as well start to learn how to go about doing it
After you make your research, get a list of professors that suits your needs and contact them,
Here is some tip for writing the email
Don't just list your previous achievements and start praising the supervisor that you really want to work with them...and calling them all sort of good names, this will hardly help in my opinion, try to make it professional...unlike our Nigerian lectures, these people like to know about your research interest and how serious and dedicated you are, while adding your previous achievements, awards, previous research and publications relevant to your proposed research area is always very important, you should also do some thorought research about what you want to do so that you can tell the professor how passionate you are about doing research and the knowledge you had about the recent developments in that particular area you are interested in, and also the prerequisites and good grades you had.
If you can follow these steps and do some research before contacting supervisors I assure you you wil get some good response from these people, and if you have good grade you might even secure yourself a scholarship if u are lucky the supervisors has some funding to give to students...
Lastly, I'm not expert nor guru, I just share my experience and what I found out through research...so I stand to be corrected

invincible2006:Thanks! I totally agree with what you wrote but my situation is a little different. I did all what you wrote here but did not get any positive responses from my targeted supervisors all for different reasons. My prospective dept needs to approve your application before you can contact a supervisor. My approval came through last Friday and I was given 2 weeks to get a supervisor.

anthochie:https://www.nairaland.com/2035081/travelling-canada-part-7/490.....wen doing that l suggest you mk use of m'word 2010...after compressing the docs(from the instruction given on that post) you convert it immediately into pdf by clicking on file....scroll down to save and send click on it, then the part where you see file types....click on create pdf and save it (that's the most easiest and straight forward way in my opinion).
