Obeledu:

Today, I bought money order totaling CAD70.5 to be send to Nigerian high commission Ottawa for the revalidation of wife driving license and my own. This is necessary for the issuance of class 5 license after road test

I thought money order for each was stated at CAD20 by the High Commission ?
Does that total include any charges?
I bought mine at a bank for a flat rate (CAD20) & no charges.

Hello,pls like how much is the sum of money will i prepare for my documents and visa application.
Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by Obeledu: 7:27pm On Jan 14, 2011
^^^^

If you are using consultant which I suggest you use, you should be talking around N900,000-N1,10000.

But before wasting your money make sure you occupation is among the listed and that you are working or able to provide solid evidence that you are earning close to at least N200,000/m

Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by Obeledu: 11:54pm On Jan 14, 2011
I dont know about visitors visa, but the flight ticket is around N360,000 and when you arrive you have to sleep in a house which is around CAD600-CAD1,300

How is your stay in Canada going? I landed here September and I must say the winter has been very cold. And yes, things are expensive, so any Nigerian who wants to come here should bear that in mind. To get a haircut from a salon is about 5000 Naira, etc. well just giving you an example. Its not bed and roses, you have to work your butt off. God strength to every Nigerian who wants to excel in good.

For those coming over to Canada, this is one habit to drop --- converting price of everything to naira !!
One-to-one comparisons as this is not the best form of analysis for a first-time traveler, without taking into account the economics of "purchasing power parity"

But, I appreciate the caution you are trying to raise.
Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by member67023: 10:47am On Jan 31, 2011
^^^ One-to-One comparisons will always be there, for an analytical minded person. Whether economic PPP or not.
Except if there is too much cash to throw around. Until maybe in 6-12 months, after settling and getting a good paying job.

OP, So far, how can you compare your present experiences with the advices you recieved from fellow NLanders over a year ago?
Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by Obeledu: 5:24pm On Jan 31, 2011
The comparison is still good considering that your income is still in naira. Although you are right, the earlier settelers will always discourage you from comparing but foregetting that when they arrived they also did the same thing.

The advice on Nairaland worked because if not for it you will be thinking that immediately you get to Canada you will starting picking money from express road.

@Obeledu congrats ,  men  how come it took five years to get the permanent visa card, coz a friend of mine says it should only take a year. also please list the challenges in getting  the PR card

my advice i think you have made a good decision, but if i were you i would ensure the kids get the citizenship within the five years, maintain your job in Nigeria ,then send your child back as soon as they have the citizenship status. if you let them stay long over there chances are they would turn out to be naughty and randy, then this means all you sweat on them becomes nothing.

Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by okeyz(m): 7:48pm On Nov 11, 2011
^^^^ i wonder how some guys open them sef open for fraudsters, i thought the immigration process is pretty straight forward, you can really do the process your self, using a consultant does not increase your chances of been giving a visa, if you are qualified , you are qualified, there is no need for this,

in the light of the above i congratulate the poster, he has really come a long way , i cant believe he still doggedly went on with his intentions, i doff my hat to him, this shows the true Nigerian spirit, where there is a will , there is a way,

my advice is before one embarks on such a project you should be ready for anything, don,t go with the notion that the roads will be paved with gold, it is the human will and spirit that creates wealth, believe in GOD and do your best,

Canada might not be the eldorado it was so hyped to be, but i have not seen any body from there that is complaining when they get back, if you have all the basic amenities working well and maintained why won,t you work?, back here you pay for some amenities and you get Nothing!!, and nobody to complain to.

once again i congratulate the poster, he took a very BOLD step, his kids will be grateful for giving them a good start in Life.

Hello Fellow Sojourners,

I have been to South Africa and Swaziland with the sole aim of enhancing my chances of getting a visa to Canada. I want to enter with visitors visa with the aim of settling there.

Please i want to know if the chances of me setting down there with the visitor's visa.

Thanks for your expected reply.
Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by ifegy: 4:06am On Dec 13, 2011
You cannot settle in Canada with a visitor's visa.
Go to the Canadian Government Immigration website and get the info you need to do it right, and avoid taking steps which will take from you a lot of money and pay you back with regret.
Re: Landed In Calgary Canada by tokszeeeee(f): 12:07pm On Dec 13, 2011
Obeledu,

Congrats,

i sent my complete application package in August 2011 after the initial approval came from Nova Scotia, Canada.

ii) How long do you think the whole process come to pass?

To those of you who resides in Alberta,

Right now I live in Toronto, but am planning on moving down to Alberta because people keep informing me of the job prospects and they even said despite the increase on house rent expenses, that you save more living and working in Alberta, I am planning on going for my undergraduate studies @ Uni of Alberta/Calgary.

All I need to know now is that is it true that there are a lot of job opportunities there and they pay more compared to Toronto?
