|Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by Chydoo: 5:04pm On Mar 26|
I stay in Kamloops, BC. You can send me a PM.
Your best bet will be an Inn for a start. When you land you can then check for an apartment before paying for it.
You can check Panorama Inn but there are a few other Inns as well.
Also Kiji and Facebook marketplace for apartments.

We are a family of three (now four )and we started our journey to Canada on the 6th of June via Ethiopia airline.
I didn't find the Journey funny, thanks to my one year old son. He is used to having a lot of space to play (we play alot) and could not understand why he had to be pinned to a small area in our over twenty hour flight . My wife being heavy, I had to bear the burden of managing him alone through out the journey in order not add stress to her
We landed in Edmonton on the 7th, rested that night in my wonderful Friend and colleagues's house before we continued our journey to Kamloops in British Colombia. I got a job there between PPR and landing. I had previously booked the flight to Edmonton after PP but before the job came.
Thank God for RCCG Kamloops.
We got their contact online and contacted them for help.
They assisted us by picking us from the airport, taking us around to get a temporary accommodation and feeding us on landing as well as buying some grocery.
We paid for the temporary accommodation we chose for a one month duration, while still assisting us find a permanent one. God bless them richly.
I was a able to get a permanent accommodation through my friend and colleague at my place of work.
Next challenge was birth.
Just to clarify to PRs who are planning to land in BC and are to give birth before 3 months, you will pay for the birth.
Birth cost hers is minimum of 7k to 8k CAD . I was getting varying information from landed PRs, that is why I am making this clear.
The good side is that you can spread the payment monthly for up to at least 48 months if not more. And you also get to receive monthly child benefit payments for your child. Also, you get to receive some percentage of the bill back on tax filing
Wish you all the best.
Lessons learnt in my opinion
1. Follow the Job not the city or province.
My friend in Edmonton drummed this to my ear after PPR. As non landed PRs we have the flexibility of choosing to settle in any province or city before landing as there are no attachments (like house rent contract) yet. One can always move back to desired location in the future if necessary. So while applying online before landing, do not limit yourself to particular city or province. This may not apply to PNP.
2. The less you buy and cargo, the better for you. Everything is here and the stress of carrying those stuffs may not be worth it
3. Professional certifications that are internationally recognized are more valuable in job search than conventional school certificate. This should be obvious
4. Everyone's story and journey is different. You can learn from other people's story but that does not mean yours will be same.
5. Have faith and be positive

Yes. It was used successfully in lieu of certificate for WES evaluation.
I think they would confirm if a convocation has been done already for the year of your graduation. They expect a certificate if convocation has been done. Not sure about this part though.

|Religion / Re: What Is Life? by Chydoo: 8:44pm On May 06, 2018|
The essence or purpose of a product was already defined by the manufacturer before it was produced. Life is a product.
We deceive ourselves if we say there is no intelligence in the order and logic where which we exists. In short science has only proved that we exist in a highly intelligently designed system or systems we call life or existence. Our ecosystems, DNA etc only points to such intelligence. Intelligence begats intelligence.
So I think your question is the age old question? Who or what is God (unmoved mover, uncreated creator) and what was the purpose of life before its creation? What was the purpose of this product before it was produced?
More questions than answers.
I found Truth in the Bible, God's word.
But the true test for all beliefs is death. What we meet or don't meet after we die. I however pray that you find the Truth while alive because knowing it now will guide you on how to live this oppurtunity we call life.

|Health / Re: Trying To Conceive A Child? TTC by Chydoo: 1:43pm On Sep 15, 2017|
Hello Mamas and Papas.
It will be sinful of me not share my experience after all I have gained as a silent reader on the thread and Nairaland in General. I know that it will help both active and silent readers ( like me ).
Most of the mamas here say their husbands are reluctant with ttc things but mine was the reverse. Fortunately or unfortunately, medical test pointed more to a Male factor. The positive side of this was that the burden of research and action was on me without necessarily waiting for my sweet heart, while praying to God Almighty to finish the work .
Our journey started Three years ago. After a year of not even a conception, we knew there was a problem. First Lab test showed that we had some infections and some anti-biotics were prescribed by the lab guy. My Wife's cleared after the dosage from our first visit to the Lab, but mine persisted even to the third lab visit and third drug prescription from the lab.
At this point, I opted for trado-mediacal after I heard a believable testimony on a radio program of one Olamiyinka Trado hospital. On getting there She requested for the lab test and prescribed her herbs accordingly. Herbs were expensive but we tried all the same. The herbs seemed to have worked in clearing the infection. I tested in a different lab after taking her prescription and all infections were cleared from the result. I want to safely assume it was her herbs and not the lab I changed that resulted to the positive result. I have also done several tests in various other Labs and have been clear of infection since then. She also did give us some herbs that should help in quick conception. The herbs did not work and were expensive.
We finally booked an appointment with the Medical Doctor who is also the founder of Park Land Hospital, Surulere. After prescribed medical tests he confirmed my DW to be fine, while I would need some boost based on my SFA result. He also prescribed Letrazole for DW to be used for three cycles and Adyzoe for me He also mentioned that after three cycles my wife should stop taking the Letrazole as He has gotten more testimonies from his patients during this that pause than during the period of medication . I took Addyzoe for two months but my research on Nairaland gave me more confidence with Fertilsan M. I ordered Fertisan M three months pack from Amazon, but did another SFA after two months of Addyzoe. With Addyzoe my count increased from 10 million to 14 million. I however continued with Fertilsan M based on the recommendation from nairaland and I am yet to finish the pack.
I am on the last sachet of the second pack now.
DW didn't know that she is yet to see her period as it usually occurs between CD26 and CD28 . I reminded her and she waved it aside. She finally did the blood test today. It was positive for the first time in three years. Thank God. I received so many prophesies during this period and God confirmed His Word.
Thank God, thank Nairalad, thank you all.
I hope these experience helps someone.

|Politics / Re: Pengassan's Reason For Strike. Does It Worth A Strike? by Chydoo: 10:49am On Jul 07, 2016|
These problems have since been in existence.
Why didn't they since go on strike for those reasons ?
The only thing that has changed recently is demand for PMS in Nigeria.
This has reduced due to the increased price and non-feasibility to smuggle out PMS to border nations further reducing the demand for PMS.
I think the strike is for selfish reasons.
Just my opinion.
