Intelligentdude:
Statement of Purpose (SOP)/Motivational Letter (ML)(carries a good scoring,make yours scholastic because this is how they will know whether you know what you want to do or not) .

Furthermore, draft your Statement of Purpose/Letter of Intent in a way that will communicate your educational background,experience,passion,interest,the relationship between your undergraduate course of study and you proposed Masters course,your personality,why you choosed the University, why the Lecturer etc .

(For your Statement of Purpose, Research Plan, Letter of Intent, Study Plan etc on : 08134657689).

Address the SOP statement of purpose) or ML (Motivation Letter) to the selected supervisors and send it to their respective email addresses; (Note that Foreign Lecturers treat emails seriously unlike our Nigerian lecturers). You can possibly attach some regular documents such as your transcript and resume. If you don’t get a response after five working days you can attempt placing a call to their Office phones or send the email again.( e.g you sent your application tomorrow being Friday, if you don’t get a response from them, send another next week Friday) but avoid bombarding them with emails so they wont see you as nuisance. You can imagine the number of mails these guys receive daily.

“Getting a supervisor” is a very important part of the application process because for the majority of universities in Canada,securing a supervisor is almost tantamount to gaining admission. It is always good to get the consent of a supervisor before going ahead with the payment of the application fee; remember application fees varies but is usually 100$.

Don't forget to Make Inquiries about the Availability of Research Funding and If you get a response from a Professor and he/she is willing to take you in as his or her student, then you just hit a jackpot and congratulations are in order because you have successfully secured an advisor. You can go ahead to make inquiries from the Professor if it is possible to be a beneficiary of a research funding and work as a research assistant. If you get a positive response as regard the funding, you will be required to work with your supervisor on a specified research topic and this just secured a job for you as a Graduate Research Assistant.(with a mouth watering pay, they call it stipends but it is sometimes around #400k/monthly but the amount varies. Some may even give you Field truck etc.
