What was the level of the course you applied for? BSc? PGD/PGC? Diploma? Advanced Diploma?
What is the name of the course?

It's really not funny o. My wife just delivered in the state(United state) so I hv to travel. However, I was given 30days to complete my medical. Called a centre in chicago but the fee is high. It about $400. What do u think?
I have read situations here where they gave 30days and didn't even wait for 14days to be over before refusing sb..Some medical call carry diff periods bt I like to go with the lowest which is 14days. If its possible to do it there, then why not? $400 is the price u have to pay then pay it bt if u wanna wait till 9th dec, its still fine. Bt be ready for any outcome.

Well, yeah the VO likely saw your application as a ploy to flee Naija. Getting a visa for a business diploma course (which is way below BSc level) is a very tall task given that Nigerian schools offer similar business courses, given that you already have a BSc, and given that admission to such a diploma course in Canada is very very easy. The VO would highly doubt that the business diploma course would be significantly different from a similar course in Naija... this raises significant questions about your intentions.

Now if you had extraordinarily strong ties to Naija (e.g. you already run a very profitable business, you have a strong travel history to OECD countries, you own valuable property, and/or have wife & kids, etc) then maybe your application would have a much higher chance. But it doesn't seem that you have any of this so it makes sense that the VO did not find your application plausible. Sorry about that.

If you say that you want to go to Canada to learn how to run a "big business" successfully, then you need to be able to make an argument to the VO that the program you are going for would indeed equip you with the skills. Even me, I am not convinced that a business diploma course would sufficiently teach you how to run a "big business" successfully, let alone a VO.

You would have a better chance with an MBA admission or a graduate diploma program that is specifically targeted towards running big businesses (you would only likely find such program at a university's school of business/management).

If you've exhausted all options, then consider emailing CIC to ask them.

I thank God for His mercies. I finally got TRV at 3rd attempt in one year.

First Application April 2015 via online but Refused May 2015

Second Application June 2015 online Refused July 2015

3rd Application September 2015 online TRV November 2015.

Reasons for refusal were insufficient funds. I Was working with the proof of funds requirement on CIC website. My admission was for fall 2015.

I did not submit SOP nor police check in any of the applications.

Re: Travelling To Canada Part 9 by thesoj: 10:48pm On Nov 19, 2015
Don't treat this as a gamble. Make sure you can justify to the VO whichever program you use to apply for your TRV. The burden of proof on you is of course higher if you are applying to a different course than your BSc, but it is not a big deal as long as you can sufficiently justify it to the VO. You can justify your chosen course through your BSc or work experience or any other undertaking that you can write about (with proof).

Several people on this thread (including yours truly) have explained over and over what is necessary to address to justify your purpose of visit. I would recommend you not rush to reapply so that you can read the thread. You could go through all my postings as I have addressed these issues dozens of times. Also go through the postings of people like @Team12 @Khalesi @ayooluwatoni @tnuola etc, or just read the whole of Part 7 or 8. At this point it sounds like you are not sure what you want to study and why. First think deeply about this before you rush to reapply.
