A level 12 and above would earn over a 100k dating back from Obansanjo era . Government school teachers earn better than private school teachers. Am a civil servant so I know.
On the age part when I am 50 my first child will be 25. My spouse is also my agemate. It's possible

I dont get offended when people post negative stuff online because when whenever we post something online we should expect both negative and positive comments. I get encouraged by the negative comments.
@opebiboy you sound like a hardworking Nigerian that is just trying to be successful like each and everyone of us. You mentioned you import cars from overseas which is an honorable business. let me tell you what i see at the site i work security. This is a 5 year construction project going on here. Every day i sign in trucks to drop off sand and gravel on the site. Now 90% of the drivers of these trucks are Indian, and what they do is that, they bring their brothers from Indian to learn truck driving under them and within 2 years, the apprentice has his own truck and then delivers on his own. Most of them then register their own company and you see the name on the truck. i am at work right now and i truck driver just came. I was registering him in the system when i asked him what company he works for, and he said the name. And i released this man, who is a born and bred Canadian is driving trucks fro and Indian immigrant. The owner of the company was still delivering today, and i talked with him,. he told me he has 3 trucks that drive for him. My bank rep once told me that, everyday she sees truck drivers and restaurant owners, who come in and they have account balances of $300k and above. Anyone in Canada can correct me if i am wrong.
The longshoremen that work on our site make $50 an hour and above. And they are unionized, so their pay always goes up. One of the longshoremen on our site drives a bentley bentayga. My own Security supervisor drives a 2013 g wagon. He is from Iran. He came to Canada and worked Security and warehouse for 6 years straight, working 16 to 18 hours a day. Right now he only works 8 hours a day and his daughter also works on site as the assistant security supervisor. she is also a workaholic getting experience to be a police office. she drives a BMW X6. When my supervisor saw i was ready to work, he always gave me shifts.
The purpose of this is to tell @opebiboy, it is not all about scam, people work hard, people toil day and night to succeed.
You keep posting links thats says "the average Canadian this, the average Canadian that', I am not an average Canadian. I am and will be a successful Canadian through hard work. The internet says Nigerians are poor but all Nigerians are not poor. Try not to be classified as part of the average.
Average SUCKS! Normal SUCKS!! Being broke is normal for average people. Folks, majority of the people in the world is normal(average) - choose to be weird!
@Op, ignore all the Naysayers. I pray they will all be alive to see you reach your goal.
Financial freedom is possible!

Op i would like to salute you for your courage. The only person that can stop you is yourself. My brother you are on the way to succes. [/b]Please let your focus become Focus[b]. Meanwhile I would like to advise that rather than acquiring liability like house . Bros acquire asset. I see you bought a car that is some liability if you ask me, coz u are paying heavily for the car, whilst you could have saved more . U could have bought two cars and use them for uber that's more income . U are savings it's good but you need to reinvest it, you need to move to the next phase of self employment. Which is reinvesting it. You can buy T.Bills but you need to be careful of devaluation of the naira . You can buy a house if you know it would bring an income , else it's a liability coz u pay property taxes. So calculate and again I say calculate. Again I salute your courage. You may want to look at the trucking business too.



I would want to say here taxes is on the average of 30 % plus either HST or RST depending on where u stay. For me I have made up my mind to work but work smart and not hard. I dropped working hard in Nigeria. I can not come to Canada to work hard. Life is short. If person die who him go leave the money for.

@nijaman3, you sounded it clear that coming to Canada on visiting visa and hoping to make it is suicidal.
Can you inform us what life is like for people coming with visitors visa - availability of jobs, hourly pay, expenses and likely savings.

No one will give you any decent job as an illegal migrant, rent house to you, you can’t easily access health care. Life as an illegal immigrant in Canada is suicidal.

Again people will think it's bad Belle but anyone considering it should think again

Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by atutupoyoyo2211: 6:39pm On Jan 30
Hey guys,
First of all, I've got to apologize for been off for so long. I had a lot going on and i just had to be off for a while. So like i told you guys, i would be traveling to Calgary for Christmas, I did. And the journey was so freaking long. An 18 hour journey in Nigeria is no way an 18 hour journey in Canada. On my way back, i had a little accident in my car. Before i left for to Calgary, i wanted to change my tires to snow tires, but the mechanic suggested i use 'All Weather tires " so i dont have to change again during summer, and i did. I think that was a bad decision. So on our way back, we encountered a mild snow storm, and the roads were entirely white and my vehicle kept skidding. My vehicle being a front wheel drive did not help matters, so the vehicle had a bad skid and we had an accident. Luckily for us, it happened when i had already entered my province, so it could be covered by my insurance. But my deductible is quite high $2500, so i had to pay that before insurance could take over. Long story short, i spent of money a lot in Calgary, and i also spent a lot fixing my car when i got home. So i had to dip into my Savings. I was really sad but we've gotta keep living.
When i got back to work, i realized the company i work with had a meeting and decided that they do not want to pay me for overtime anymore, and that they need to employ someone else for the other 8 hour shift. To be honest, this was a hard knock for me, because i just moved to a more expensive accommodation. They first complained that my long hours may be detrimental to my health, but when i suggested to them that i dont mind working without overtime pay, they agreed. Now, this made me realize they actually dont care about my health, they were not just happy that a security guard was earning so much. I am trying to decide whether i want to continue without overtime pay or look for a second job.
Now as for my savings, I am starting to build it up again, its gonna be a bit hard, but i am committed to it.
Happy new year to everyone

Re: My Monthly Savings In Canada by atutupoyoyo2211: 7:08pm On Jan 30
its a 2017 sedan, dont wanna state the brand, because of some very intelligent internet friends we have. I opted for a higher deductible so i can reduce my monthly insurance payments.

No way!

Why would you subject yourself to that option? That's like working extra time without pay.

Find another job to compensate for your working extra hours with pay.

Sorry to learn about the temporary set-back.
