Factually correct, but misleading.

https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/new-immigrants/pr-card/understand-pr-status.html

It appears you can only remain a PR when you didn't meet up with your residency obligations if:
a. your PR card expires with you in Canada,
b. you decide not to leave the country again,
c. you decide not to apply for a new PR card and
d. you avoid legal issues that can lead to a removal order.

Once you have to apply for a PR card or a PRTD, a decision will be made on your PR status.

Hi Fam, this is urgent please. I am about ordering an upgrade of my credential assessment with WES for NCA assessment. I’m kinda confused whether to order a course-by-course or document by document evaluation. Those that have walked this path, please contribute, those that haven’t but have ample knowledge, please lend your voice ink. Thank you.

PS: I didn’t submit my WAEC to WES, will it be required now?

I doubt WES has anything to do with NCA and it's assessment.

Check the previous page, a breakdown of the process was explained by @blessings2017

Thanks for your response dear. I called NCA today (Jan. 14, 2019) to ask if they accept credentials from WES, and they answered in the affirmative. It saves me some time and money.

WAEC isn't needed. It's course by course evaluation but make sure NCA is the only recipient. Is your law school transcript with WES too?

Everyone claims they're a hustler until it's time to hustle.

1. You benefit from this move as much as your children

2. Find out what interests you then map out a plan on how to achieve it in Canada. Right now your braining is running around like a chicken with it's head cut off.

You can also run a business in Canada as long as it is not illegal. There are a lot of resources for newly landed immigrants who want to go into business.

Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by canadaman18: 7:15pm On Jan 15
Hi Sir,

Depends on what you’re willing to do

Trade certificates aren’t very expensive and you could get a job in plants and sites and make very good money . However the job isn’t easy and takes away family time although if you weren’t working like crazy you could still be making like 70k. I know a 35 yo guy who’s been working as a welder for 10 yrs and earns 150K.. Also there’s dignity of labour so no one will look down on you for any legal occupation

Secondly if you want the professional route you could start by making doing some canadian certifications fixing up your resume and applying to jobs. They’ll likelt be entry level and will not pay too much initially but it’s a start and you’ll have something to do . If you’re technology inclined no harm in trying to pick up software / web development BUT only if that’s what you’re passionate about

I get that. My point is that you can start another business in Canada. Even importing and exporting.

Like @maternal advised, relax, research and prepare an action plan. You already have the business experience, you have many options. One option: You already have a supply network in China/Hong Kong. You only need to find a demand chain in Canada.

A few links from CBSA (border agency) on importing/exporting to Canada.

Summary: Your limits are only as you define them. You do have opportunities.

congratulations on your immigration. you could as well continue doing business, since that's what you are into presently, arrive in the country and do a survey of your environment. or you could learn a trades ( electricians or plumbers). but trades take 4 years of apprenticeship.

I get your message but for the poster who is in a dilemma at the moment, it could come across as harsh or insultive.

Allthough I've somewhat become accustomed to your way of expression, it would be nice if you can perhaps be more subtle.

I quite agree with you. Leaving the country to start life afresh in a place where you don't know what to expect, especially when it seems the odds aren't in your favour is no small feat.

It's surprising he would spew insults just to appear blunt.
