That's exactly what I wish I could do but I know it's not possible.

If you're a software developer or devops guy, go to Canada. 500k na just 500 USD. For Canada you can easily land a better job remote or in-person.

I can tell what you have is a visitor visa.
Without a work permit, that'd be a real hustle by the time you land. The 6months stay condition of your visa is a turnoff for most employers that'd want to hire on a long term.

Advice: take the 500k job for now and tell your frnds in Canada to recommend jobs in tech for you. Tech people can get job from outside Canada. Once you land one, you can travel by then.

While you're here, you can consider PR visa as well. People in tech have enough advantage getting Invitation to Apply from provinces in Canada.

Accept the job, apply for study leave without pay for 1-2 years. They may or may not accept it. It’s 50-50

Oh, it is multiple entry. I can be in Canada for six months at a time, valid for 10 years

This is some kind of visitor's visa?

I will advise you keep your job nd explore Canada on the side.

If it is a full residence visa, no contest, go for it
Re: My Dilemma: Canada Or 500K Tech Job by na2016: 2:15pm On Oct 15, 2023

Omo I fell it's great that a friend will house you o. But a job of 500k with adons is really good. In my opinion, take the job and work it for sometime get some money and more experience and then seek Canada jobs from here.

From your chats is a visitor's visa why not stay back with a good job and work towards a work visa.

Don't even listen to anyone..enter plane to Canada. Thank me later . There are many jobs over there . You will have peace of mind . The inflation in this country is getting out of hand...500k might not even be enough in a month for a family man . B4 we use to pay 18k yearly for security. Today it has been increased to 30k fir security . 66unit of electricity for 5k ...Don't say I didn't warn you go now b4 you regret like me .

if u have business or work or anything u are doing that can be getting you 1.5M and above in Nigeria. You don’t have any reason to travel out. 95% of people outside won’t be able to safe more than that in UK, Canada or US. You may definetly not even like the job u will be doing to even be saving such amount. it will be a job you can’t even do when u are in Nigeria

It is a visitor's visa na... not relocation. So take the job and visit Canada when you are vacation since you already have 10 years multiple entry.

My exact mindset too, but I already have these wild dreams in my head and they're not going away. I really wish this job had come earlier or after I'm already in Canada. Why does it always have to be like this?!!

by December, that 500k will be less than $450, pls move, even if it is for the sake of your unborn kids. What you will achieve in 2 years working in Canada (even as a freelancer) 7 years in Nigeria no go do you.

Go to Canada if you have a legal pathway to permanent residence.

Nigeria today is for people who are already established in corrupt politics, older retired people, poor people who have no legal pathway to japa, and the likes

Even people earning N1 million plus monthly and others are saving up to move their families abroad

How much is 500k? $500?
The question is,
What do you want to achieve in 5yrs time,?
Are you single?
What type of visa do you have?

If it's a visitors Visa take option 1
If it's a PR visa take option 2

Option 1 Truth is, the house, could be raided by EFCC, the car would almost go bad as a result of bad roads, plus part of the cars could be stolen, the health benefits is abysmal because HMO are out to make profit.

Option 2However, Canada is currently going through a criss period, you have constant power supply, good road, standard health care same with one the PM is receiving unlike Nigeria where your have your president going for abroad for mere headache, serene environment plus you have laid a very fantastic foundation for your generation unborn. It's also worthy to note that there's racism in Canada.

The ball is in your court, you decide

Re: My Dilemma: Canada Or 500K Tech Job by Dennisochampa: 2:23pm On Oct 15, 2023
Before you make a choice... Just think about it that 1000 CAD is more than 500k...

So if you're half as good as the job you landed suggests, think about making 4k CAD monthly in a sane environment where everything works just fine.
No allow your village people use you.
This is a chance to secure the future of your unborn kids.
Nothing dey 9ja...even if u dey earn 1m per month, who deh earn 4k for canada, usa or even UK na bros for where you deh...

I wonder what’s the big deal in making a choice here

From what you said, it’s a visiting visa you have to Canada on a 10 years passport

Why don’t you visit and see the canada and go back to Nigeria to continue your job

Good advice from someone in abroad for years, Nigeria like quick money. If the reason of coming is just about money, you’ll be disappointed. But if you’re coming to better your life and your kids you’re welcome. There is no shortcut, all those bullshit advice you’re getting will not help you. I don’t know much about Canada, but in US, if you’re ready to go to school & work hard, you can be anything even more than you can ever imagine.

Stay back here. It's better than where they'll use tax to finish your income and leave you in the cold hands of loneliness and depression with no social life.

Remember housing there is monthly and to meet up and still have small change to roll by you'll have to double or triple your hustle in that their extreme weather condition leaving you exhausted and sick.
