Hello all, pls I am searching for anyone that completed their ACCA after moving to Canada and stay in Winnipeg. Yeah, I know it might be difficult seeing as the only ACCA recognized tutorial centre I saw online is in Toronto and not much info on doing ACCA in Canada on the web, however I know it is doable and I will really appreciate practical tips. Even if you started ACCA here, maybe as a path to CPA and stay in Winnipeg, please I need your guidance, kindly PM me.

Thanks a lot.

My methods are- self-studying, open tuition lectures, LSBF videos, youtube, BPP study and practice kits. I will be writing my final paper in December.
There used to be special centre in Winnipeg, but due to Covid - centre based exam is cancelled in Canada for December 2020 diet.
Not sure if this will continue though.

Let me know other question you have and I can be of help.
Good luck.

visit cic/ircc website. express entry is the easiest way as it doesn't require a job offer.
But I have no work experience as required..I belive this will affect my score.

It’s almost impossible(You need a job offer and your potential employer must prove that no Canadian is qualified for that job). However, if it’s a low skilled job(Chinese folks do this a lot especially those that own grocery stores but they only do it for their people), you may be lucky. Check IRCC website for programs that provide this. On this journey , you must be willing to really research or spend the money to employ a RCIC(you can start with a consultation- this can give you a head start). Unfortunately, I’m almost certain this “agent” is a scam, but I hope you make the best decision.

Thank k you so much for your time sir , I'm appreciate ...my reason for going through the route is because I don't have a work experience and I belive it will affect my score for express entry. Is there another route that you know about I may be qualified for ?

If you're willing to do thrift/used then get a settlement agency to refer you to Women In Need. Free Furniture and possibly free clothes. Also get a referral to Making Changes Closet Program. Free (top quality) work outfits.

Thanks for the info! grin grin

Before you pick up the item, ask the person directly if there were bedbugs in their house previously, then check it very well to ensure no bedbug eggs or roach eggs. The last thing you want is to bring bedbugs into your apartment.

It's not very common but a friend mentioned that it good to check as some people would rather sell the furniture rather than fling it.

This is another major thing to consider..... thanks a lot for this.

Most immigration programs (in Canada) require some form of work experience. Except you want to look into the caregiver pathway. Pls google immigration pathways in Canada and let IRCC website be your guide(as this is the only place you can be sure that information is 100% correct).

Good evening everyone,

I just got an ITA from Saskat...nominee program.
Letter was dated 3rd November and application meant to be submitted in 60days which falls due on January 2nd.

All forms are almost done but for the proof of funds, states that the fund must be there for 3 months. Aside account, other means are allowed eg pension, treasury bills,e.t.c

My personal account have more than enough of funds going in and out in excess of the amount, my pension is more than the amount required too but 25% can be accessed at any time.

I want to combine all and I also have a family member willing to transfer deed. Does anyone have an info about transfer of dress if this is accepted? This is because for this means, the funds has been there more than the 3months.

Can anyone who has done this kindly throw more light on this considering than January 2nd is last than 3 months.

Thanks in advance

Hi all,
I applied for study permit and i have received a mail requesting for mypassport but in theletter it states that my passport expiry date must cover my study period because permit expiry datewould be the same as my passport expiry date.
My questions;
1. Is this possible? shouldnt it be the expiry date on the program not my passport?
2. if so i need to plan to process my Nigerian passport renewal. I am looking to renew in the USA.

Nigeria has 3 embassies in the US; New York,DC and Atlanta. I want to know which one is currently processing the renewal faster (within 1 week please). PLEASE YOUR RESPONSE IS MUCH APPRECIATED, would it be too much to also ask for someone's contact at the embassy who could be of assistance.

Thank you

I don't have an answer to your other questions.

Hello seniors,
Do you think any discrimination exists against qualifications acquired outside the province, but within Canada?

Secondly, has anyone here taken a course/program with Robertson College, Manitoba or Centre for Distance Learning, Nova Scotia? Please I need reviews.

Thank you.

Personally I do not advice new immigrants to go to private colleges- which is what Robertson is - because there is a high chance of being stuck with a useless certificate. Employers prefer their community colleges because they know courses are standard and accredited. Please look for a community college in your area. In addition, community colleges are cheaper than private colleges.

Good evening people, please I have a little problem, actually its my uncle who asked me to help him inquire about some issues here,

Here is the thing, my uncle is a Soldier, and he wants to resign and pursue his Canadian dream, Luckily there was an Italian man he was driving while he was here, the Man liked him so much and Asked what he can do for him before he goes back.

My uncle told him that he will like to go to Canada if there's anyway he can help, Luckily the man has a friend that works with a an oil firm in Canada, The guy has agreed to help, the Italian guy has requested my uncle to send his Documents.

Problem is most of his documents are Military related, And also what way can he help, I mean the Canadian guy? Please he needs the easiest way for him. He asked me to come here and get your opinions, I will be reading your replies please

You can help me out here . I opted for New Brunswick because the tuition was affordable to me compared to other schools

Hello,

I know Nigerians can be quite innovative.
There is a Start-Up Visa program pathway for people with innovative ideas.
Apart from living expenses, the applicant does not need to fund the business; the idea can be pitched to designated investors and lead to a PR.

There are consultants in Canada who can help with the process.

Start-up Visa Program
Applicants to Canada’s Start-Up Visa program must meet four basic eligibility requirements:
1. Have a qualifying business
2. Obtain a commitment from a designated entity in the form of a Commitment Certificate and Letter of Support
3. Have sufficient unencumbered, available and transferable settlement funds (amounts updated each year)
4. Demonstrate sufficient proficiency in English or French through standardized testing (Canadian Language Benchmark level 5).

Contact Losen24@yahoo.com for more details.
