As long as you're stepping into the airport at Toronto, you will need a Canadian visa (transit or visitors'). Whether you're staying at the airport or taking a tour of the city. I had same experience but the Toronto transit was on my return leg from the US. I was allowed to board the flight (Air France) in Lagos on the condition that I must have a visa when returning. I applied for a
transit Visa immediately I got to the US and it took almost two months to get the approval and get my passport stamped.

The airline said it was my duty to make sure I had all necessary travel documents. They wanted to charge me $1,100 to reroute my flight but I chose to move my departure date forward instead and waited for my passport to come back from Ottawa. I paid $198 for moving my flight date forward.

Please I have a question to ask... I planned travelling by the end of the month to the United States , but I have a 14hrs layover in Toronto with my airline... Please I wanna know if I can possibly get a visitors visa from the airline and make little tour in Toronto during that hours of layover.?

500k monthly is 6 million annually, which is about $18k. Great!


But travelling abroad will not only give you more but you'll be in sane environment and you won't be bothered about the future of your kids.

However, having a profitable business alongside the 500k job remain the best alternative but again the economic environment of Nigeria can be frustrating.
Very beautiful comment

While I would not like to derail this thread, I will also not like to leave this wrong information by @ahiboilandgas unaddressed.

Really, over 90% of Canadians earn $30K annually. The way some people here on Nairaland display their ignorance when a simple google search could have helped na real wa oh. The article in the link below says the following about median income in Canada in 2013:

According to StatsCan, the median income (plus our 10 per cent factor) in Canada in 2013 was $35,200. This means that half of Canadian tax filers have incomes over that number and half are under that number.

https://business.financialpost.com/personal-finance/managing-wealth/how-does-your-salary-stack-up-to-the-rest-of-the-country-a-look-at-what-canadians-make

According to StatsCan here is the median income distribution in Canada back in 2013:

$25,000 = 94th percentile (This means 94% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$50,000 = 53rd percentile (This means 53% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$75,000 = 27th percentile (This means 27% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$100,000 = 14th percentile (This means 14% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$150,000 = 5th percentile (This means 5% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$225,000 = 2nd percentile (This means 2% of Canadians make more than this amount)
$300,000 = 1st percentile (This means 1% of Canadians make more than this amount)

If these numbers were from 2013, we can only imagine what the number will look like now in 2019 (6 years later).

This will be my last comment on this as I will not like to derail this thread.

@ahiboilandgas: It is obvious that reading comprehension is your problem but I will try to break it down for you before I give up finally on you.

First, the following two statements are not the same (take note of the position of the word OVER in the two statements):

First statement: OVER 90% of Canadians make $30K annually (this is your own statement which is wrong):

What this your wrong statement means is that if you take 100 Canadians, 90 or more of those 100 Canadians make $30K annually (i.e they make exactly $30K, not more and not less). Only 10 or less than 10 out of the 100 make an amount different from $30K annually (i.e The amount that the less that 10 people out of 100 people make could be more than $30K and it could less than $30K).

This is definitely wrong and it is not what the data I produced above is suggesting. The correct statement will be second one below.

Second statement: 90% of Canadians make OVER $30K annually (This is different statement from yours and it is what the data above is suggesting):

What this correct statement means is that if you take 100 Canadians, 90 of those 100 Canadians make more than $30K annually (this means that 90 people make anywhere from $31K to infinity amount). Only 10 out of the 100 people make anything less than $30K.

For you to better comprehend, here is the break down of this 2013 numbers:

$25,000 = 94th percentile (This means 94% make $25K or more. It also shows that 41% (94 minus 53) make between $25K & $50K)
$50,000 = 53rd percentile (This means 53% make $50K or more. It also shows that 26% (53 minus 27) make between $50K & & 75K)
$75,000 = 27th percentile (This means 27% make $75K or more. It also show that 13% (27 minus 14) make between $75K & $100K)
$100,000 = 14th percentile (This means 14% make $100K or more. It also shows that 9% (14 minus 5) make between $100K & $150K)
$150,000 = 5th percentile (This means 5% make $150K or more. It also shows that 3% (5 minus 2) make between $150K & $225K)
$225,000 = 2nd percentile (This means that 2% make $225K or more. It also shows that 1% (2 minus 1) make between $225K & $300K)
$300,000 = 1st percentile (This means that 1% make $300K or more)

I give up after this if you still find it difficult to comprehend his simple information.

The guy will update the thread when he wants to.
He went to CA when most companies were on holiday. Most companies will resume today and I'm sure his job search should take a new turn for the better from now.

Lastly, while you prepare to emigrate, remember to wish the Op well too in your prayers and, all the best in your own plans this year.
