First and foremost, why were you that careless that your employer get to know before PPR. This kind thing, na after PPR person dey let the dog out of the bag, when you already know say CoPR don sure. Anyway, nothing do you. Just maintain your champion. You no need to IRCC anything. Are they monitoring your life ni?
My one cent opinion

At the bolded, that is not supposed to be the fault of the applicant. And it's not about carelessness, in my opinion. Very many people I know tell their employer before they write, so if the employer chose to react that way, it is not the applicant's fault. Don't forget that CIC calls the employer to verify the reference letter. If they show surprise to CIC when the call comes, that could lead to a refusal of application, which is a worse error.

For me, the employer is acting wrongly, but the applicant did the right thing.

do the airlines allow yoghurt and snacks in handbags or carry on bags?
I was travelling with my toddler so i put it in his backpack as his snacks. Most airlines will allow snacks for toddlers. I just took my chances with the yoghurt though. It wasnt the liquid drinking yoghurt was the small tub ones. Hope this helps.

Hello Fam. Hubby and I will be landing at Edmonton in August. Kindly inform me if you get wind of a 1 bedroom condo. Many thanks. @woodcrestmayor, we have to meet o.

In other news, my boss (in his unofficial farewell speech) kept saying 'forget Nigeria, don't look back'. It's just all so sad...

Good day everyone, I need your advice on my career, insults too are allowed.
I have a masters degree in environmental toxicology and pollution management but I don’t have any work experience in or outside my field. I was 26 when I got my MSc, so the age bar for employment didn’t allow me skip through the screening stage. God knows I tried my best to get job but none came except primary school which I didn’t take up.
The reason I pushed for this immigration

I will be landing with family of (3) in Calgary first week in August. How do I go about this no experience thing? Please how can I find a career path, I will appreciate your views ( even if it’s going back to school)
Thank you all

You basically have an opportunity to venture into any career that might fascinate you. Look inwards to your strengths and qualifications and look at jobs that might be in demand where you are settling down. Something might resonate with you.

Don't rush into doing any other MSc. Wait a while to see what you really want and if a masters will help you advance better, you might then consider it.

It will be easier for you to do survival jobs while you are waiting to decide, get a bit of "Canadian experience" and transit to what you may want in the long run.

May the odds be in your favour.

Since the landing hour is already upon you I advise you take full advantage of your employment counselor. Work with at least three newcomer agencies and take full advantage of their employment counseling services. CCIS and CIWA are the names I have in my head. You can Google 'newcomer services Calgary' to get more options.

No worry, you go dey alright.

Hi,
a. I am leaving Winnipeg because I'm going back to school. University of Guelph for MSc. Winnipeg is actually a lovely place and cost of living is relatively low.
b. I am not sure if I will have anything left because the apartment I'm going to in Ontario is unfurnished and my things will be taken to Ontario by road.
c. Heat is for warming up the apartment when it is very cold especially during winter, electricity/ hydro is synonymous with NEPA light. smiley

@Winterpeg, pls I need information about University of Guelph.

Hi,
What information about the university do you need.
Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Jaygirl20: 3:17am On Jul 12
1. Weigh your luggage before going to the airport so that excess luggage doesn't come as a surprise.
2. No need to pack so much foodstuff, you can buy them here in African shops.
3. Your COPR, passport and POF document should be in your hand luggage.
4. If possible, select a seat infront inside the plane. This will help you get to the immigration officers on time and avoid the long queue.
5. No pack meat, chicken, fish or milk to avoid stories that touch.
6. Remember to pack all your certificates, relevant documents and Driver's license because DHL from Naija is pretty expensive.
7. If you're a lady, buy lots of undies. 1 bra here is like 6K Naira grin
8. You can pack some biscuits and snacks to munch on inside the plane, some people don't really like the food served onboard
9. Book your Air bnb before you travel, to avoid being stranded.
10. And lastly, have a safe trip!

@DadR and @drizzy,

You can actually write the CSC exam in Lagos. I contacted them in December last year about it. See the email response

DPizzy:

I believe you could study for the exam prior to landing, but you can only write the exam in Canada as of now.
