Hello house,

I will be landing in January when I will be 5 months pregnant. What medical documents do I need to bring from Nigeria or will they conduct their own tests?
I just need someone to guide me through. Thanks.

Hello, when I came in 2015, My midwife asked for a copy of all the tests I did in Nigeria and my husband scanned them for me since I didn’t travel with them. They eventually ordered a new round of tests(I was 7 months pregnant then). I would say it depends on your ObGyn or Midwife.

Hello house,

I have found this forum to be very informative and helpful.

Thanks to everyone here present for your various contributions.

However, I intend to commence this journey and I have this firm believe that it would be a smooth and fast one.

I intend for my wife to be the Primary Applicant being that she's got a B.Sc and M.Sc, she's under 30, we have two kids, and again, my elder brother is based in Canada as well and he's a citizen. She's to write the IELTS soon and we are hoping for the best as expected. With a good exam score, how many points are we looking at?

What are our chances? And again, do I have to write the IELTS exam myself?

Thanks in anticipation of your positive response(s).

Use the link above to simulate your score. Your spouse cant score less than 8777(LRSW). You should also write IELTS and get your ECA to increase your score but If your score is high enough with your spouse’s IELTS and ECA , you may need to proceed with your IELTS and/or ECA. Calculate your potential score first, then follow the express entry thread, a lot of information is there, you would benefit more from there

They'll be helpful to you if any of them lives in Saskatchewan or Manitoba through the provincial nomination program.. Sask especially because no draw has been done for Manitoba for over 1yr

people used to sell based on Nigerian bank rates i.e the rate they debit naira accounts for CAD transactions. But now almost all the banks now have 100 or 200 usd monthly limit. So anything goes. People sell at what they like as there is demand for it.

Please seniors and Canadian citizens help tell me if I am on the right path?

I am a 25years undergraduate currently in my final year in Architecture with a CGPA of 2.72/5. But due to the time implication with regards to my age, and unavailability of PGD in Architecture in most Universities in Canada, I may not continue.

It will take me 5 to 6 years to have my masters and paid work experience by then I will be 30 or 31, this goes contrary to my plan of securing ITA in 4.5 years time.

Inview of this I am planning to change career to IT, currently learning programing (phyton). Also, I am well grounded in most Architectural softwares both rendering and models.

I used my church's branded certificate and got PR. It had both our names on it


autolearner:
Hello everyone,

Its been exciting reading everyone's story and man, I am super pumped about the prospect of joining this thread as a 'bonafide" member shortly.

Anyways, I'm here to solicit for information regarding marriage certificates in Nigeria. I am aware that this thread is the wrong one to post this, however, I am looking to leverage the wealth of information from the diverse contributors to this thread.

I recently got married during the lockdown at a Local Government Registry, followed by a church ceremony at my in-law's church in Osun state. The certificate issued from the registry bears "Intergovernmental Marriage Certificate". Shockingly, further checks on Ministry of Interior's website https://ecitibiz.interior.gov.ng/home/FAQ says's the following:


Registry Cert Header


MIN-faq

My question thus is, are marriage certificates issued by Local Government Registry's recognized by the Express Entry program, or do we consider recertifying our registry certificate with the Federal Ministry of Interior?

PS: I should add that the church, CAC, issued us their branded wedding certificate but I am not certain about its validity for immigration purposes.

Thank you.
