You are right! Before they label someone terrorist. Actually there is a story about this somewhere on nairaland I think. I can't recall the details anymore but the family used a BDC and were arrested at POE for laundering money for terrorists or something along that line. Their case is still in court in Canada.

Please be careful with whoever you use in changing your naira to CAD (including bureau de change). We (my family) are currently still accused persons in a fraud case over the money we money we bought from a bureau de change in lagos which was transferred to our canadian account. Apparently, some yahoo boys defrauded some Canadian lady and unknown to us, we bought the money.

Hi Blessing, for those of us that used IQAS, how do we send our transcripts to NCA. Does the institution send it directly? Or do we have to go through WES?

I do not know if NCA will accept transcripts from IQAS. You could email them to find out. My University and Law School transcripts were reprocessed by the respective institutions and sent directly to NCA.

You may or may not go through WES. However the advantage of evaluating through WES is that, your credentials/records are kept with them and could be sent to any prospective employer upon request by you. That way, you wouldn't have to always go through the stress of processing transcripts for any given application.

Hello, I am an in house legal practitioner and I am planning on coming to write the NCA exams in May. I just read from your response that the exams can be written in other jurisdictions so, does it mean I will be referred to these places other than Canada? I am also planning to go to the embassy next month for the visa to enable me write the exams and so what's the implication of doing so, if there are other centers apart from Canada?
Thanks while awaiting your response

An extract from NCA page

"Can I write my exams in a location other than Toronto, Winnipeg, Regina, Calgary, Edmonton, or Vancouver?

Applicants may be able to arrange to write examinations in other locations within Canada and in other countries, at their own expense. Further information on approved sites can be obtained by contacting the Examinations Manager at exam@flsc.ca. Not all requests will be approved particularly where a site already exists. Sites will not be approved in regions covered by the six cities listed above."

Remove yourself as a recipient. You don't get to receive it, the report will be sent only to the NCA.

But you know along the line, she would need her University and Law School transcripts if she wants to article. Most lawfirms require you to send your CV alongside the transcripts

Hi Guys,

I have a question!

I submitted my application Aug 2018 as a single applicant and got married in December. I informed CIC before and after the marriage about my change of status and that I want to include my spouse in my application. I never got an address in my account about the additional docs, instead an agent told me to just submit the Background forms, additional family information forms, proof of payment, etc as a single document in the CIC case web form. While gathering the supporting documents for my spouse, I got an E-mail that my application is about to be approved and that I should update my application by Email (I was given an Email address) and another step was that I should send my passport for the PR visa.

I responded to that E-mail with my wife's documents and forms that has been filled but I did not get any acknowledgement and my status was never updated neither did it show that my wife has been included in my application.

I have not sent my passport to them because I want to wait and insist that my wife be added with my application instead of having to wait to get PR and start thinking of sponsorship which takes very long time.

All the cases I have read of people adding their spouses, they usually got an address on their account and usually knew when their spouse was added because there will be additional slot for them to upload supporting documents instead of Email.

I will appreciate any information or advice from anyone who has had similar experience

You can always add your spouse before landing. That means even when you have your passport already stamped but yet to travel, you can always raise a CSE to include wifey/new born baby etc.

Raise a CSE, not an email, and CIC would respond in like manner . However, if there's an exceptional delay from CIC, kindly proceed and submit your passport. It won't jeopardize wifey's PPR.

To allay your fears, a friend of mine had his PPR approved, passport sent and stamped (his application took just 1 month from start to finish). He got married 6months after and raised a CSE to include his wife. Wifey application took roughly 2 months. Now they're in Canada enjoying smiley

Yes I did the EE application and I used my WES ECA report for my Application.

When I called NCA though, they said they accept credentials from WES but that the report has to state that the credentials were verified by the issuing institution and not just sent by the institution. On my ECA report, it is stated that the institutions verified the credentials, but I am not sure whether they will state the same in the course-by-course report.

I looked up a sample of an ICAP course by course evaluation report on WES’ website, and the verification thing isn’t stated on it. But then again, it could be that a verification wasn’t required for that credential and therefore was not done.

Any advice?

Good to know that WES ECA is now favorable and very economical to use. Back in the day we used IQAS.

I think you should send WES an email telling them your concerns and how you would want the wordings to be... dunno if it'll work but you could try at least! ( sorry for the late reply)

MissChristine:


Hi Blessing.

Oh I’ve got a lot to ask! I sent a pm request earlier.

I’ll like to know more about the following —
i. The accompanying documents for an NCA application I evaluated as a FTL, and was asked to provide my University transcript, Law School transcript as well certificate of good standing from the Bar Association/Supreme Court. Please refer to the links in my earlier post. Also of note is that you mentioned being a law graduate which impliedly means you're yet to go to law school and be called as a lawyer. This also means you're an ITLG (Internationally trained law-graduate). While it is possible to apply for the assessment, I however do not know what the requirements you'd be asked as an ITLG.

ii. The complexity of the exam, study materials and the recommended number of courses to take in a sitting for a full time worker
[b]It's an open-book exam. No past questions. Generally what is referred to as past questions could either be what former exam-takers regurgitated as the questions they saw in the exam hall and their answer to it OR past questions of provincial law schools. There is NO model past question or answer from NCA. Study materials are according to the syllabus which is found on the NCA website. Note syllabi change almost yearly alongside the study materials (textbooks, already made notes). Always be alert to this as it can be huge. The recommended textbooks are also on the NCA webiste. If you have too much money, you can buy each of the textbooks and make your personal notes. For me and my kind, we 'rugged' am by buying and sharing written notes. I used Liran notes - https://nca-tutor.com/ncanotes/ If you're lucky you can find someone writing same time with you that can lend theirs to you for free. Also I made maximum use of the law library in Calgary Courthouse. The updated textbooks are always there which you can borrow for weeks[/b]

iii. If a student visa will be required to write the NCA exams in Canada
Your question get as e be sha. But you can challenge the exams so far you de inside Canada legally... student,visitor,EE ( I went through EE) Note that you don't really need to be in Canada to write the exam. There are other exam centres located in some countries which Nigeria is unfortunately not among. I heard there are centres in USA, South Africa and UK

iv. The meaning of the phrase “articulating” (or something like that) after obtaining a qualifying certificate
Articling is internship in it's loose form. In Alberta you article for a year, I'm sure it's same in other provinces amidst other distinct requirements. There's the 6-month CPLEAD program (you write some tests as well) you're required to complete alongside the articling. Also you can apply for your articling duration to be abridged if you have years of experience. When you apply for such, it will go through assessment by the Board

v. The implication of having a qualifying certificate without being a member of the equivalent of an NBA branch
As earlier said, for the NCA, you'd apply for assessment as an ITLG ( Internationally trained Law [b]graduate). What NCA would require from you, I wouldn't know. I applied as FTL (foreign-trained lawyer) likewise everyone else that I know with a legal background . I[/b]

vi. The probability of a qualifying certificate boosting an express entry application
As a law graduate, all you need is your LL.B certificate to claim the maximum point for a professional degree which ranks equal with Masters'. All other things being equal, you're good to go smiley

vii. The best way for a legal practitioner with less than 5 years practice experience to emigrate
EE . 3years give you max point

viii. The approval chances of an in-house counsel planning to emigrate when compared with a lawyer working with a law firm
LOL... I was in-house (4years) before migrating. There is no such distinction

ix. Which threads are dedicated to foreign trained lawyers in Canada etc
Check my earlier post, you'd be properly guided. In addition, I belong to the following Facebook closed-user groups;
National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) – Current and Former Students
NCA students, articling students, & internationally trained lawyers (ITLs)
NCA & BAR STUDENTS
National Committee on Accreditation (NCA) Edmonton and Alberta region. ( for my Alberta people wink
NCA Tutor - National Committee on Accreditation - FLSC



It is definitely a lot of information to ask. But hopefully answers to these questions will also help other people in the legal field hoping to emigrate.

Looking forward to receiving a feedback from you or anyone with answers to these questions.

Sorry @MissChristine I can't fathom this pm thing . I saw you sent a message alongside a couple others but couldn't find it in my mail.
I feel Q&A should be discussed on the forum for reference purposes.

I was actually writing a detailed story (shortlanding-NCA exams- Calgary social life with pics) on MS-word a few weeks back but somehow I lost the file. Been tired and super-busy to start from the scratch again . I guess I'd drop some in at intervals.

Taking a cue from @Vcole's suggestion, I'd start from generality (official website links et al) to particulars if need be.

For every Foreign-trained lawyer (FTL) looking to practice in Canada, you MUST challenge (write) the NCA exams (it's an open-book, no NCA-past-questions handout which has a Pass/Fail grading system where 50 and above 'issa' Pass grin)

Your go-to website: https://flsc.ca/national-committee-on-accreditation-nca/ All the info you need is there.

NCA assessment process: https://flsc.ca/national-committee-on-accreditation-nca/applying-to-the-nca/

five step process involved in each NCA assessment;
1) You submit your application with required documentation and payment;
2) The NCA reviews and assesses your credentials;
3) The NCA notifies you of assignments or deficiencies;
4) You complete your assigned requirements; and
5) The NCA issues a Certificate of Qualification.

NCA is just the first step as each province has it's distinct requirements to apply for admission into their law society. My province of interest is Alberta and if it's yours as well,then you'd find these links useful -

1. https://www.lawsociety.ab.ca/lawyers-and-students/membership-services/internationally-trained-lawyers-and-graduates/

2. https://www.lawsociety.ab.ca/resource-centre/student-resources/beginning-again-internationally-trained-lawyers/

Other FTL's can chip in requirements for other provinces.

I was deliberate not to do a summary by providing official links as I believe if you need to actually read up from the website. I guess that's it for the general section. The other post(s) would address some particular questions with my experience in view.

This is a really insightful thread. It’s also commendable to see Nigerians looking out for each other.

I’m a law graduate who is exploring relocating to Canada through the acquisition of academic degrees (LL.M and NCA). Although I have read up the process, I am still quite confused on some issues and feel someone with experience would properly guide me. I am going to be mostly self sponsored (daddy and mummy have really tried so far) so I want to ensure I don’t waste a kobo due to avoidable mistakes in my application.

Are there immigrant Canadian legal practitioners in the house? Does anyone know an immigrant Canadian legal practitioner? It would be highly appreciated if I can have a detailed discussion with such a person.

Many thanks.

I'm a foreign trained lawyer in Canada currently challenging the NCA exams (landed Canada through the Express Entry program).

What do you need to know about the NCA ?

For someone like you who preaches respect, but secretly disapproves of their lifestyle, you run the risk of denying them their right to freedom of expression. Were you to vote, for instance, in Canada on a referendum that greatly affects this set of people, you may allow your imported cultural background to influence your decision[/b]. [b]Yet you take shelter for own yourself under the same constitutional freedom offered to all. That's not exactly fair. Perhaps also, if you were in a position to maybe rent out a room to them, you may refuse to because "their actions disgust you." That's even discriminatory.

The law and constitution of Canada protect both gays rights and individual's religious beliefs. @cochtrane, I see in your post that you are advocating for their rights and are pushing it to great lengths, thereby being oblivious of other rights enshrined in the constitution.

Needless to say, your reasoning is flawed @cochtrane et al. I couldn't find a Canadian case yet, but this leading US case is very instructive. I enjoin everyone to read the article below:

https://www.theguardian.com/law/2018/jun/04/gay-cake-ruling-supreme-court-same-sex-wedding-colorado-baker-decision-latest

For a refresher, the Supreme Court is the final court of Appeal over a matter. In this case, the Learned Justices ruled 7-2 i.e 7 Justices in favour, 2 in dissent. That says a lot.

I stand where the law stands which is where @TheCongo stands too. There should be mutual respect and understanding but I have every right to deal with my property however I deem fit including refusing as a landlord not to rent to gay couples if I feel any of my Charter rights as codified in The Canadian constitution 1982, would be infringed and ladies and gentlemen, that's not discrimination.

I wouldn't want to bore anyone with the plethora of Canadian cases where the court has upheld religious beliefs as sufficient reason for the commission or omission of a particular act.

Personally, I would not rent my building to a gay couple based on religious beliefs. It's not being discriminatory.

Note that:
1. No 2 cases are same as facts and circumstances of a case matter in arriving at a judgment.
2. Readers should not consider this as a legal advice but rather as a personal opinion.

Parents of the bride? In Igbo land, the women are not even allowed were the discussion is taking place. The Yoruba's don't collect it anymore so I don't know why you are saying parents because its usually 'elders' comprised of men.

Re-read my post and see that i stated bride price and other requirements which are chiefly borne by the groom.

Women not being participants in the discussion doesn't make it any less a bride price. Likewise, parents in an African definition connotes more than the real parents of a child.

I don't why you are bringing women into this bride price matter because last I checked there's no village I know of in Nigeria were women collect bride price. Its strictly a "men" thing and it still continues till this day because it's the last thing men use to claim submission.

You're missing the point.

Bride price is where parents of the bride collect a sum of money given by the groom which ushers in the celebration of a traditional marriage amidst other requirements. Strictly speaking, money is being collected on top of the woman's head.

This is akin to slavery. In slavery, money was paid for the slaves and their master owned them. We all agree this practise was all shades of wrong, against natural justice and basic human rights. How was it abolished? By declaration of its illegality after several public outcry against it.

That way, payment of bride price and all its appurtenances should be abolished. It follows that if we are trying to embrace everything about the western way of marriage, which is marriage by convenience, then bride price which is dehumanizing ( a man paying money to 'own' his bride ) should also be abolished. Because it is from there that most Nigerian men have that entitlement over you as 'lord"

Interesting conversation.

I must commend Guitarlife for airing his opinion and sticking to it, not minding if he's politically correct or not. You can't flaw his line of reasoning as a lone ranger amidst torrents of feminine activists.

My opinion, women activists must campaign for the eradication of the bride price system notoriously found in an African traditional marriage which I'm quite sure most of you had. This is one of the root causes on men's stance on authority and submissiveness.

In being fair and wanting a leveled-playing field with shared responsibilities and rights in the family, women activists should insist men don't pay any bride price on their heads, so that we know that the marriage is a partnership arrangement from the get-go. Honestly, a typical Nigerian man is not easily amenable to western culture, not after spending a lot of money to marry his wife ( I'm aware a few women give men money to marry them but that's more of an exception than the general norm). For such a man, he has no business being in marriage outside Nigeria unless he changes his ways. If not, the feared - divorce- becomes reality.

It seems that the words 'head' and 'helpmate' when used in conjunction with marriage is fast becoming repulsive . I won't be surprised to see those words join the list of derogatory words as a marriage terminology. But then, the fact still remains that as a practicing christian, those words are ever alive in the bible.

We should understand that 'head' and 'helpmate' also mean a form of Partnership. Yes! it is . Partnership varies in percentages and it is left for a couple in marriage to design the ratio and be flexible with it. That said, being the 'head' or 'helpmate' could be flexibile, depending on the circumstances and as a husband or wife , where your significant other is better suited for a particular task , he or she should be allowed to perform it with respect to his/her sense of judgement. In that particular situation, the person that called the shot is the head ( in a very flexible arrangement).

I don't have any issues with western cultures and I am not in a hurry to embrace all of it. Nevertheless, a hard stance would be that a woman that encourages payment of bride price by the man shouldn't cry wolf when asked to submit to the man. Without fear of contradiction, skip the traditional marriage and it's tedious demands/rigours skewed against the man, do a court marriage or be common-law partners and wholly observe western cultures. That would be an absolute masterpiece and then you'd be in your right to delineate any culturally gender-assigned roles and expectations in your marriage. For the most part, African and Western cultures are like oil and water, they don't mix.

However, pre-expectations and rigidity in marriage does no one any good. Personally, I would canvass for a hybrid of some sort more especially if you find yourself in a western country. My guy, the system is against us . I've been opportune to study some family case-files, and honestly I was traumatized knowing men suffer a lot . The legal system does not even care about you. It's in your best interest as a man to conform to a certain level, well, unless you're the major provider in the family by all indices -still risky though. This I write because, if you ever drive your 'mgbeke' christian wife you married from Nigeria to the point of self awareness of her inherent powers (no be rights again), na only God go save you.

In Canada, one can't "volunteer" or "work for free " for a for-profit organization. Most companies try to stay away from any action that could bring about a lawsuit.

Two ways to get around this:
1) padi to padi arrangee.
2) Employers that work in conjunction with recognized internship programs. There are schools, government or bridging programs that can help people work for free to gain Canadian experience. I believe einsteino is starting one of such programs soon.

I think there is an exception to your statement above.Going by the little experience I have as a foreign-trained lawyer (FTL) in Calgary looking for articling positions, you'd be shocked to find that most FTL opt for one-year unpaid articling jobs whereas others are being paid big bucks in some law firms. When you have looked for paid articling postions for 6 months yet no sign of uhuru, no be person go tell you make you just patch with one firm like that even if na free. Unpaid articling jobs is a norm in the legal circle and is publicly advertised even inside the library in Calgary Court house. lol.

I know a couple of colleagues doing it though I must warn that it's a suicide mission if you don't have family to support you. Imagine 'no major income for a year. Oh boy!

That $1000 is the equivalent of 1200 canadian dollars here.

Hope this clarifies[/quote

Pardon my ignorance but can one withdraw $1000(C$1200) in one tranch or does the ATM give a cumulative of $1000(C$1200) in several tranches?

If the latter, going by GTB's response, the charge would be way more than $3.5 (N1,260).

the thing is with d gtb dollar card u can be doing withdrawals here of maximum $1200 in a day and you are charged about 1k for each withdrawal,so if i am doing dat everyday in ten days i wld have withdrew my $10,000 and just paid 10k as charges so that saves alot of cost then your dollar card also works well here.
Bank charges-they are pretty much the same across all d banks,not much difference except TD dat gives new immigrants free banking for the year.I hope dis helps

How true is the assertion above? Here's the response I just got from GTB online rep:

Withdrawal limit per day is $1,000 . Charge on withdrawing any amount whether $1,000 or $100 or $450 is $3.5USD

The Daily ATM withdrawal limit for the dollar card is $1,000 , POS and WEB transactions has no limit.

We (my family) are currently still accused persons in a fraud case over the money we money we bought from a bureau de change in lagos which was transferred to our canadian account. Apparently, some yahoo boys defrauded some Canadian lady and unknown to us, we bought the money.

This is not too good. I hope your defense is solid, backed up with evidences ( receipts et all). Good-a-thing the judicial system there is transparent and effective, unlike Nigerian judicial system. You'll soon be vindicated without a deep burn through your pockets. Amen!

Hang on my learned friend.

God gracious! I'm desperately in need of the book . Infact, forget i ever typed pdf. lol

I'm not in Toronto, but it's not a hindrance biko. I'll pay for cost of courier to Nigeria (your terms - either pay before or after courier). When I come to Canada in September, I'll send back the book to you. No hassles at all biko.

Thanks alot in anticipation @RahmaMohammed.
