I no dey even talk again ooh, make everybody decide themselves. It took me 6 months after finishing school in Canada to get a job, Imagine if a work permit holder finds it that hard to get a job, how much more someone who isn't allowed to work legally? It's tough out there!

Thank you! Far too kind.

Truck driving is quite lucrative and in demand in Canada. If that’s the path u want to tow, I would suggest that u do the following:
1. learn how to drive a truck in Nigeria
2. get a Nigerian truck drivers license
3. Once u land in Canada, go to any of the truck driving schools, enroll for driving classes and apply for Ontario truck drivers license
4. With all other things being equal, you should have a truck job waiting for you after you complete this process.

Now Ask yourself: Is illegal immigration not a threat to national security? If an officer has reasonable doubt that you will not return to your country after your trip to Canada, is that not a form of illegal immigration and a valid reason to refuse entry?

If they refuse anybody entry especially vv holder and you have the money and can endure the long waiting court process then face the court because even with this court judgement ,boarder officer can still refuse entry if they have reasonable doubt that you will be an illegal immigrant which is a threat to national security

Hi everyone, so I got another Qatar ticket that will land in Montreal Trudeau (not yet paid). Has anyone taken this route before? Any condition attached to landing in Quebec first? Will the layover time in Montreal Trudeau be enough for all the necessary Port of Entry documentation?
Thanks.
Montreal was my Port of entry, everything went well no issues please check and confirm the dates on your documents before leaving the airport thanks

Hello! I’m looking to move from Ontario(Aurora) to Edmonton with my son. Looking for advice on good areas to rent in or possibly buy a 3 bedroom townhouse. I’ve been in Canada for a while but Ontario is just not cutting it for me anymore. Renting or buying is just too pricy here now. Landlord is selling my place and the options out there are so unaffordable.
Any Edmonton groups/ WhatsApp I can join?
Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by njambert: 5:28am On Oct 05, 2023
Hi,I'd recommend to rent abit first(6-9months) before buying.
West side and South side of Edmonton are really good places to buy.Lots of new construction and nice communities in these areas.
Nice two bedroom apartments typically go for 1400-1500 here. Personally,I rent a 2bed 2bath spacious apartment at $1395.Only have to pay electricity(under 100/month) and internet. There may be lots of negative press about Edmonton, but I say where you live is what you make of it.
You don't need to make much to live here.All the best for your journey ahead,and may the Lord favour you this way.

Hello,
I am a bit perplexed and wondering if anyone could share some info with me. I just managed to get the required french level for French CBD draws and much as i am excited about updating my EE profile i am also wondering if i have better chances in Quebec's Arrima as compared to Ontario french draws. Another thing i am worried about is the 1500 OINP application fee as i continue to amass my POF and thinking that Quebec is a better option as it has a lower POF requirement. My fear is that Quebec may be difficult to survive for the rest of my family as i am the only french proficient member of the family.

Just to put into perspective:
1. i have an active profile in both EE and Arrima
2. should i update both profiles with my french results?
3. where do i stand a higher chance considering my CRS is currently in the ranges of 300-330 before NCLC 7 french update
4. hubby has no eca or ielts and doesnt plan on pursuing either
5. will my family manage the mainly french speaking Quebec environment, in terms of hubby getting a job as non french speaker, children coping with public school where i assume french is the medium of instruction?

I know i am putting the cart before the horse here but i would like to make an informed decision before i take any further action with regards to updating my profiles. I understand that i am not guaranteed ITA either way but better to ask that to be sorry i didnt.

thanks in anticipation.

Thank you! Renting will definitely be better to get settled first. I plan to visit for like a week soon just to get a feel of the environment. That’s a good price for 2 bed, 2 bath! Will be over 2k in my city. I will be in your dm please if I have any questions or concerns.

Na wa o. 2 bedroom for $1400 😳. And we dey struggle to get same for $2900 in Toronto. It’s even scarce to begin with.

Hi,

Kindly send your number, I'll ask admin to add you to an Edmonton group.(Hopefully it's not filled up yet).
I know a couple Property managers you could reach out to ask if they have apartments available for rent.
It's probably better to rent and have a feel of Edmonton to know if it's works for you and have enough time to make informed decision on buying. Apartments of $1400-1500 in Edmonton was $2,200-$2800 when I was in Toronto.
I usually recommend SW(South) it's safer, newer neighborhood, easy drive to anywhere in Edmonton via Henday HW.

All the best in your choice&Move.

Anytime I look at Alberta real estate, I just wish to run away from Ontario. If I had not established in Ontario, I wouldn't have thought twice about relocating to Alberta. They are really enjoying

Ontario real estate problem escalated after the pandemic. In 2019 and early 2020, you could still get a sharp 2 bed apartment for $1,100 in the Region of Waterloo but now ...... embarassed embarassed

even with IELTS the chances of a 57 years old retired person legally migrating to Canada is almost zero. They are looking for young people who will work for a long time.

If the said person is in health sector ( nurse, health assistant..... ) she might get a shot.
