start learning French now, it will help with scores in future....

Very good advice! Even some of us that have landed are taking the French lessons very seriously especially those in Ottawa and Quebec.

Try calling CIC to speak with an agent.

I used to use an app which allows free calls via the internet to US/Canada because the wait time can be long.

Get your CoPR first. I think the CoPR will come with travelling advise. However, the last time I checked, people are landing in Canada from Nigeria, even in the tick of lock down.

Airbnbs might also be a cheaper and affordable alternative.

With respect to the bolded it depends on the province. I have never had any issue in Ontario for not changing tires. However, the insurance is slightly high as a result of this. Insurance companies will generally ask if you will be using all seasons tires instead of Winter tires (in the winter).

I have heard in Quebec there are police checkpoint inspecting car tires in the winter. It seems like winter tires are mandatory in Quebec


P.S. I have just found this online:


MARCH 15 INCLUSIVE
From December 1 to March 15 inclusive, all motorized road vehicles registered in Québec (other than heavy vehicles, tool vehicles and farm machinery) must be equipped with winter tires.

This requirement also applies to rental passenger vehicles in Québec, as well as mopeds, motorized scooters and motorcycles.

IF YOUR VEHICLE IS NOT EQUIPPED WITH WINTER TIRES BETWEEN DECEMBER 1 AND MARCH 15 INCLUSIVE
The fine varies from $200 to $300, plus costs




Ontario – While there are no actual laws in Ontario that require drivers to use winter tires, there are some reasons people might want to use them outside of them simply being safer. Insurance companies in the province are legally required to give discounts to drivers who use winter tires.

To start with, not may provinces care with a law on winter tires. Alberta does not have one.

Last year, I was late to change to winter tires because I was a bit busy. Just at the first snow fall, my car skidded terribly on the road but the good thing was that it on a lonely street and It was wide enough not to affect other parked cars. I carefully drove it back home, parked and took cabs till I had time to change the tires.

If you however have All Season Tires, they will hold on well; but if you are on the normal tires(summer tires)..just make sure you have AA or AMA numbers for possible towing. But why will anyone consider such?

Thanks sir/ma, I understand all you said.
An all season tires with a 4WD is the plan.
But I guess Winnipeg being the coldest city will require winter tires. Alberta/ontario/British Columbia are warm right??.

But Who pissed you off tho, abeg officer be calming down, Google doesn't give a satisfying explanation all the time nah, even Google maps doesn't know road. Imagine Google maps telling me to fly a stream with my car because it feels it's a shortcut.

Just curious, how would a march in BC affect policies or politics in Nigeria?

I guess the right place to hold this type of event would be Nigeria. A place like UN Plaza in NYC can also serve the purpose of sending a message to the world.

BC seems too remote and probably no one among the policy makers in Nigeria will even be aware that such event took place.

That was just my 2 cents

we are in the social media era. Every protest counts whether remote or not, as it would be uploaded online. People all over the world protested for BLM/George Floyd so why should end sars be different.
