After wetin bus use my eye see today, I am beginning to consider getting a car sef.
Pele, jumping Bus can be so frustrating especially when a 5mins trip by car takes 40 mins, or one misses ones bus ,thankfully the weather has been at peace ✌️. So pain of waiting in the cold hasn’t become excruciating.

It's about having a plan and sticking to it. The exam will set you back a few dollars and you can only write in Canada. I can send you the soft copy I used(main study material though. When you come in and register,
you will be given the same material and you can add study packs at a few extra dollars. I heard of someone who started with CIBC as an advisor and now works for the government of Alberta as a BA earning 6 figures. If you want to go the BA route, you have to put in the required shift. I bought a udemy course and will start as soon as I get comfortable at work.
flyboi1:
I'm also trying to branch out to BA. someone needs to hit the ground running in Canada. I'm currently learning from Udemy but i have been slow-paced since before the holiday. No ginger as PPr has refused to surface. Also looking to continue my banking struggle. I have earlier gone through the CSI website, but there's no option to do the exam from outside Canada. Plus it doesn't come cheap.

Thanks much.

Yes ,I read somewhere about that that 2yrs and 10yrs clause.That's kind of against me as my degree is about 12yrs old .In had delved to banking for about 10yrs but wouldn't want to go that route again in canada.Thanks,i do apprecaite your input.I will research for more schools requirement,hopefully I'll get one that will suit me.
.
Cheers


Glowingx:

Choose your choice province, then check if their university offer the after degree BScN and if they do , check the school requirements. Most schools consider last 2years CPGA also your pre- requisite courses have to be less than 10years from year the courses were offered. Also some schools like university of Lethbridge for example offer preparatory courses for the after degree.
The after degree nursing program is very competitive so different schools have different requirements for admission.
All jobs have prospects, be in health, finance, skilled trades

Good day everyone. Please I'll like opinion on this. I just got married to my husband here in Nigeria. My husband is Canadian and I am Nigerian. He is planning to sponsor me to Canada as his wife (spousal sponsorship). I just want to know if anyone had a successful application and how long exactly before cic gave them visa? Did anyone had to wait for a year? And also I would like to know what documents were required exactly. I have done change of name and looking forward to getting a new international passport. 
And also I've been denied visiting him before we got married I will therefore like to know if I can apply for visit while the application for spousal sponsorship is ongoing?

Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by sunvick(m): 4:07am On Jan 10
The two bold are a red flag for me. How come the embassy is talking about an application whereas its only an invitation you received from the wayo company!!

Just google the clearance certificate "Canada", you will realise you have no business with that as you have never lived in Canada before. That is the caveat to exploiting you.

Why not share the email address of the embassy that sent you this email so we verify the domain of the embassy.

Hello everyone, kindly help me on the below information.

I sponsored my spouse, and it took roughly a year. AVO is peculiarly known to have a timeline of one year minimum for spousal sponsorship.
For the documents required, you need to study the application package with your spouse, so many proofs and supporting documents are required to prove that your relationship is genuine.
I submitted random photographs, including few of our wedding pictures, evidence of on going communication (WhatsApp/emails/Facebook messages), evidence of my trips to Nigeria, copies of my entry and exit stamps on my passport, wedding program and invitation card, evidence of financial support, letters from friends and family members, evidence of joint bank account, I can't remember all again.
You can apply for a visit visa, while spousal sponsorship application is on, but AVO rarely grants such visas.
Ensure that you read through the application package, because changes are made from time to time, and if you make any mistakes, the application is returned to your spouse in Canada, till the error is fixed.

Learner grin grin grin when your mates were doing 'bend down select' during university days you were buying from boutique, abi?

I think an ordinary wash usually gets the smell out. Those days you wash as usual, then spray perfume.
In these days of softener you could do a quick wash, and then extra rinse with softener.

Not everyone spends that much on passes in the GTA though, most people's expense would be around $140. The thing is I live in NorthYork, which is a part of Toronto but so far work and classes takes me to Mississauga and Brampton; occasionally I go to York Region(Not the same as Toronto's North York). though Toronto, Mississauga, York Region and Brampton are all parts of the GTA, they each have their own transit agency. Toronto's TTC monthly pass cost about $147, Brampton $124, Mississauga's Miway $130, York Region's YRT $150... So rather than buy multiple bus passes or pay multiple fares while connecting trips, I just purchase the weekly GTA pass for $63, that way I get to use all these GTA transit service at no extra charge and save a lil.


To the best of my knowledge, if you purchase the monthly 150 dollars plan using this option on the presto site instead of selecting a specific transit pass, then you can use your presto card anywhere in the GTA but once you cross over to a new city from Toronto e.g. Brampton, etc, you have to pay a new 3 dollar value.(also valid for 2 hours as in Toronto, I believe)
