Best ask the question in the skilled workers thread

I know a couple of people who did their prints at a police/sherriff station where they were based. The prints was then clearly scanned and emailed to a naija contact who processed the police certificate for them and scanned same to them.


Thats exactly how i did it for someone.
@woodcrestmayor kindly send me the materials too. Kmgbltd@yahoo.com

Gracias

Hi Guys!
I have plans for a career change and business analysis has been on my mind for a while now. I will like to start making moves this year(school and elementary certification) in preparation for 2020 launch out.
Do we have any business analysts in the house? smiley

For newly landed and people that are underemployed. People within low income bracket. There are food banks around that supply families with groceries that can last for 10 days in a month.

This will reduce the grocery pressure on your proof of fund and it has nothing to do with welfare. It is purely food bank.

Google for the one near you and give them a call to get their requirements. Thereafter go there once a month and get some groceries for your family.

You are expected to stop when your situation improves.

This is a really insightful thread. It’s also commendable to see Nigerians looking out for each other.

I’m a law graduate who is exploring relocating to Canada through the acquisition of academic degrees (LL.M and NCA). Although I have read up the process, I am still quite confused on some issues and feel someone with experience would properly guide me. I am going to be mostly self sponsored (daddy and mummy have really tried so far) so I want to ensure I don’t waste a kobo due to avoidable mistakes in my application.

Are there immigrant Canadian legal practitioners in the house? Does anyone know an immigrant Canadian legal practitioner? It would be highly appreciated if I can have a detailed discussion with such a person.

Many thanks.

Search for @Cocolav. If she's got some free time, I bet she'd be happy to guide you.

On a lighter note, my guy here, @Guitarlife and I are searching for a wife: just in case you ever consider exploring other options grin

Lots of oil workers actually send their family over but stay on working from their base in Nigeria. When I lived in Calgary, the breadwinners of 2 families in my neighbourhood were oil workers still employed in Nigeria. They often visit their family in Calgary when they get a break from work. One of my bigger bros from uni also did not resign his job as a geotech in an oil servicing firm in Nigeria. He left his family back in Canada too. I do not know how much senior oil workers are paid back home, but I am guessing it's a lot since their wives here do not work, they own their homes and kids attend private schools in Canada.

Most techs/engr in the oil industry usually travel out of Nigeria for job assignments anyway. They could be in Brazil or Venezuela today, then off to Angola or Gabon the following week. It makes sense to leave the family in a safer country while they still progress with their career. They stay employed this way while still taking advantage of the safety net in Canada.
some earn as much as 16k American dollars a month after tax

Pleassssseeeee guys, biko,ejor any idea.

The scenario is Passport & PR Visa expires June. Travel date is last week of March. Is this a problem as passport validity will be less than 6 months. If it is, does CIC need to be contacted after passport renewal or just travel with the new & old passport that has the visa.
You needn't worry about the six-month rule for Canada. It's one of the countries in the world to which you can travel as long as your passport is valid.

Just in case anyone is up for it, putting money in the Canadian/US stock market is really not a bad idea, especially now that the global market has tanked a bit. You really couldn't do this effectively in Nigeria given the shady dealings and insider trading going on on the NSE on the one hand, and because there is no ready access to this market for Nigerians on the other. But being a Canadian PR now offers you the rare opportunity to dive into the global market and profit from the growth of large US/Canadian companies. Buying ETFs which track the Dow or the S&P500 is always a good starting point, if you are scared of the uncertainties associated with individual stocks. These (ETFs) always mostly go up anyways, sometimes returning on the average about 7% annually, more than what any savings account will give. And there's no better time than now in this supposed "bear" market. Essentially, buying into the Canadian/US economy offers the chance to put some money in the same economy you trust to offer you a better standard of living than your home country.

I've read a lot of views and ways to dive into the system from graduates of Accounting, finance, Mbbs, Nursung and the likes when one finally arrives in, either through bridging programs or taking some courses but we've had no information from Microbiology graduates over there or does it mean we'll have to change career path when we finally arrive. Please, if there are any Microbiologist in this thread or anyone who knows someone in that field should kindly speak up and advise on ways to integrate. As there are branches in this field such as quality control/assurance, industrial, environmental, food, virology just to name a few which means there should be a lot of opportunities out there but I can't seem to get my hands on the right information on how to fit in or bridging programs to go for. There ain't much info on Google either so getting an insight from someone already in the system will be much appreciated.
