My bro, to be honest the ball is in your court. Increasing your chances in your chosen career or settling for cheaper province, house etc. Dont get me wrong, calgary is a great city with opportunities. Mortgage prices in ontario is on d average 400 -700k on the average, mayne excluding Toronto. This is not dissimilar to Calgary. Please do your research and be more informed so that you can make informed decisions. Weigh the opportunity cost - alternative of higher chances in the financial sector fore gone for doing a job u may not like and/or barely making enough for your mortgage because people told you it is a cheaper city? Is it enough for this trade-off? Do the maths and then draw your priorities...career / cost of living / house in the order that best suits your interest.

As per your last question, check for the location/province of such programs when they're advertised, that should give you a clue. I'm not familiar with that tbh.




Thanks a lot...Toronto tins.

If you're not getting hired as a Management trainee in one of these banks, then you must possess a skill relevant to the bank. Easiest way to navigate this is to think about the guys that work in Bank Head offices in Nigeria, what skills do they possess? Risk management, audit, Data analysis/MIS etc. If you're selling yourself as a fund transfer or teller, then you may have to settle for Financial advisor as a means of getting in, and then rising through the ranks.

PS: Banking hub + maximum opportunities in this field is Toronto...



Hmmn...am so grateful for the reply sir....I optioned Calgary cos I felt its cheaper to settle there due to cheaper cost of living ,buying house in future n the likes...compared with Toronto where cost of living is huge.....so I felt probably one could get Finance/bank jobs too in Calgary...


As per the management trainee...I have done much work on scotiabank ,CIBC ,TDbank n RBC programs n I saw that they have something like our own graduate trainee programme here where you choose either corporate finance,wealth mgt ,n the likes with trainee fr 12-18 months ....and also internships....how do u see this

The above link will answer the question on difference. I know if you are converting from ACCA to CPA, your added designation to CPA is CGA (General Accounting)while if you are converting from CIMA your added designation to CPA is CMA (Management Accounting) For CA, i think it is for those that are in public accounting.


Then for changing path, it is difficult unless with internal reference. The best is to get in with the skills you have (foot in the door) and then change within the company. They normally recruit based on experience and not what you want unfortunately. But you can give it a try. If you can defend the finance skills in your resume then good. Meanwhile Tax is also a good one over here.

The career path for finance analyst is attractive. From finance analyst to senior finance analyst to finance manager to controller/chief financial officer to CEO.. Most CFOs end up being CEOs because they work closely with CEOs and have understood the challenges of the role. So it really makes sense changing your path. And while at this you try and get a Canadian based masters degree.

My posting is not cordinated because i am multitasking presently.




Hello sir,For someone with MSC Financial managemt from the U.K...and just 2 years Bank experience from Nigeria(fund transfer,teller) and would love to build a career in banking industry in CA,,,,would you advice settling in Calgary or Toronto... and most banking roles seems to be Financial advisor ,aren't they other roles someone can get n grow into a management position(e.g in Nigeria bank ww move from Grad trainee to BO to SBO to Manager to Exec Director)..Do banks like scotiabank,TDBank n co av such

Hello ppl..

I have a friend we were chatting recently and he told me that he will be relocating from U.k to Canada once he clocks 1 year at his present place of work.....Dude finished MSC financial mgt January this year...got a job as an analyst in Barclays bank...but he said that the pay is small plus he is considering the fact that he will have to wait 5 yrs to get stay in the U.K,..immigration rules changes anytime...Below age 28..and he also said that since he will be getting married soon sponsoring wife to uk ..give birth there n kids can't even get citizenship n all that doesn't fancy him...so he as been telling me he will do the E.E. thing n port to CA early next yr.......


How do you see this move senior ppl,



2)He worked 2 yrs in a bank teller n customer service bfr porting to U.k....I told him Calgary or Toronto is cool fr him as a finance pezin......But is like ppl here don't really support Calgary fr finance/bank jobs

You will get a mail scheduling you for a phone interview. Not everyone will get this mail though, even though you might have passed.

Those that fail the tests were mailed already, knew 2 people in the category. As for others, it is now the real review start, after which they will contact those who are closer to whatever it is they needed.

Goodluck to us all, it's not a do or die, don't throw anxiety over it guys. What will be will be, just give it your best try, and never stop dreaming.

thanks for this information, I'm really glad . I want to start the process and my husband and kids ll b involve, what's the first step first ? I guess hubby and I will have to write the IELTS first before any step?
I have gone through the Canada express entry thread and most of the abbreviated words are confusing me .I dont understand what most people are saying there that was why I wanted to use an agent






Smiles...its no problem ma...

Yes ,You and hubby will write IELTS and then immediately go start ur ECA- Educational Credential Assessment for you and your husband. ..Evaluate your highest qualifications ...if u have bsc and MSC .evaluate only your msc...

The ECA can take up to 3 months or less depending on your university... You tell the skul to send your transcript to either WES or ICES depends on ur choice...

Also for the IELTS,pls give it your best shot especially the listening aspect...cos from my observation ,that aspect drops ones marks a lot...


Then, also for Proof of Fund(POF) for living expenses.Depends on the total no of ppl involved in the process... I.e. you,your husband and kids..if its a family of 6(4 kids,hubby n u) u need approximately 9 million for that .....meaning,you need to present a 6 month bank statement showing minimum of #9m ...

You will be spending approximately #1.3m for processing for 6 of u.....




So when your IELTS result is out and ur ECA is ready,just go to CIC website and fill in the form for ur interest, then there is a cut-off points for ITA(Invitation To Apply) which is arnd 440 ...then if you meet the points for the draw,you will be invited to apply...

Pls lemme stop here

Feel free to ask your questions pls....

wow .I didnt even know it takes this long ,and some agent will say 4-6months , this people are so full of lies. only God can save us from Nigeria Agents



Express entry process is done and dusted maximum of 8 months...Infact most times its average of 6 months once all needed docs are ready..IELTS results,ECA and co....if u av those 2 already go start now this January.. By September /October you will be in cannyland....

Just budget #600k roughly ,for all processes ,if u are doing it fr yourself n not including ur hubny or kids or wife..but rem to have roughly #3.6m as proof of living expenses fund sha....


Stay 4 years straight in cannyland and apply fr citizenship..... Then u can now come back to naija...but u v given your kids lifetime opportunities, that's if u include them in ur application....


Note'..You dont need an agent for the process at all..... You can do it yourself...

Hey guys, i know i was supposed to post a new balance this week, but holidays no be small thing o. You have to get gifts for family, friends and so on. So i have to take a break from saving for the next 2 weeks. However, my wife decided to give me 2 of her paychecks to make it up in January, so we are still on track. I decided not to travel to the US again, but instead to spend my holidays in Canada. Return ticket to New york is like $700 and we are 2. Other interesting cities in US was just about the same price. It will cost over $2500 just to spend the holiday in US. Myself and wifey decided to plan a holiday for early next year. Infact i got a return ticket to Singapore for $700, same price for tickets to Seoul. Its crazy how fares are so expensive this period, well its expected.
I will be doing a road trip to Calgary this holiday and i will document with some pictures and put them on here. By the way, Happy holidays to everyone.





Wow...that's awesome ...happy holiday too


You said something about running an open course before MSC,what do u mean by that pls


You also suggested considering skuls like uni Manitoba or Saskatchewan for the MSc... (For a 2:2 grade grad)...are finance /banking jobs easy to get there being smaller Town's
