My Monthly Savings In Canada by atutupoyoyo2211: 12:17am On Nov 21, 2018
Hi Guys, I moved to Canada 2 years ago and i have not been able to save any money yet. I made up my mind that i must save $120,000 (one hundred and twenty thousand dollars) by November 10,2020. I decided to document my progress on this forum, so that anyone that wants to compel themselves to save money for the future can also be encouraged to do so. We all have different savings targets. I didn't put my full information on the forum due to security reasons since i am going to be posting my bank balances from time to time to document my progress. Now, a little background on myself. I am a graduate from Nigerian. I came to Canada in 2016, worked in a warehouse for a while. I presently work as a security guard while doing my Masters degree. Its a 2 year masters degree. My hourly earning is $16 an hour, but i work a heavy overtime schedule, since nobody wanted to work overtime, as a naija sharp guy, i offered to work the overtime shifts.
I started the Savings last week and i am going to post my first bank balance online. Lets see if i can meet my target. If anyone has tips that can help me achieve my goals, your suggestions are highly welcome. If anyone wants to save, you can also post on here , lets document our progress together. But please keep personal info off here for security reasons. So, lets do this.

I'm a little concerned that you're pasting your savings online...

Despite deleting some personal info... Hacking into your account will not be a great difficulty for people who are "gifted" in such areas!!

Y u dey use una hand find trouble

Well, As a cybersecurity Masters student, and someone that has a solid background in certified ethical hacking, you have to be spiritually gifted for you to hack my account based on the information i provided. I do understand your concern though, its always good for one to be online security aware. But i can assure you, in this case, there is no water that can grow that seed of thought.

Hmm
Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by internationalman(m): 1:59am On Nov 21, 2018
$16 per hour..

Assuming he works for 8 hrs $16 X 8hrs = #44800

Assuming he works for 28 days a month #44800 X 28
=1254400million..

So gateman pays way better abroad than a bank manager in Nigeria...

PassionateSoul:

Hi bro, I also intend coming to Canada for Masters in Cybersecurity next year, I have a couple of questions
1. what's the average amount I need for tuition, flight and accommodation for the first year?
2. What's the acceptance rate of Canadian schools, would they admit me because I had a 2:2 in Computer Science from a Nigeria University ?
3. When is the best time to start my application?
Please do reply and good luck on your saving goal

see algebra on someone else's savings. Cost of living in Canada won't let you save the money. It is not uncommon to pay #300,000 monthly on house rent alone. With great determination, he will succeed in this savings journey.

Bro its not just about saving, but what can your savings fetch you...

Never leave your savings idle...

Make your savings your slave and it will work for you...

Richest man in Babylon...

If you know you know...

I'm also not comfortable posting such details online, the greatest test to set controls and security is collusion... You just don't know how this information can be manipulated...

Lol

Bros you did well with the Tax and cost of living but fumbled when you said 16$ is not a lot of money. 16CAD is 12USD and that is higher than the minimum wage in almost all countries of the world including USA and Canada. Australia is the only COUNTRY with more than 12USD (16CAD) as minimum wage in the entire world.
