Hello house, please for someone that just landed, how do we go about filing our tax? I’ll appreciate any response. Thank you

File your taxes as soon as you land.

Your income in Canada for previous year will be 0.

Alternatively, apply for child care benefits, the form should double as filing for taxes too.

Hello everyone,
Can I use an international driving license I got in Nigeria to drive automatically in Canada, or do I still need to write the knowledge test and take the road test?
Because securing a spot for a road test in my province takes about 5 months.
Thank you.

Check the province you live in and see their requirements.

Good evening everyone.

Please, I’m a student with study permit, but my fiancé is already a citizen. We intend travelling home 2 get married end of the year.

Currently, I have 5 job offers 2 work “full time”. I would love to accept one of the offers.

Can I accept the offer and work with my “study permit” knowing that I can still get “Spouse work permit” or decline because of the effect of >20 weekly hours restriction by IRCC?

What could b the implication of accepting the job now with my study permit?


Please, I’ll appreciate if the house can render some advice.

1) Your study permit allows you to work 20 hours per week—- so you cannot work full time. (You already answers this)

2) Getting married does not automatically grant you spousal work permit since you will need to apply for it- wait time: unknown.
Remember you can only hold one or the other. A spousal work permit or study permit.

3) Solution: stick to your study permit and its terms and conditions (Do not get tempted by the full time job and ruin your immigration chances);
Get married and your spouse can apply to sponsor you for PR.

If you apply for PR sponsorship inland (within Canada), you can submit a work permit application with it. Go to cic website to learn more about this.

Good day Gurus in the house, please I need your advice.

I recently secured admission to study in Canada and about to commence my study permit application. I intend using my younger brother as my sponsor, he is a nurse in UK with a skill worker visa. He operates UK and Nigeria bank accounts. Now my question is:
1. Can I use both accounts for my application considering the fact that he has more money in the UK account than Nigerian account?

2. Since he is my younger brother, can that factor affect my application?

Thanks as I await responses

Nobody Dey too look the money wey you get for account. All they want to know is if you are genuine or you just wan jakpa.

You need to satisfy the visa officer that you will indeed return to Naija if you finish school or if k-leg enter your schooling map.

Hello guys
I've got a question
If your course requires you to pass the first year before being admitted into the main program which in total makes it four years
Can I tell the immigration officer at the airport that my duration of study is 4 years ?
Even if it was one year visa I got
Pls help me on this one

You sef don ansa your question yourself. You wan make we bobo you with hope.

You will be granted study permit based on the duration shown on your offer letter or the expiry date of your passport, whichever comes first.

You got a one year visa because that is the condition on your offer letter, if you succeed , you renew your trv and permit.

Nothing more, nothing less.

Hello guys,

I'm trying to book a flight to Toronto. On wakanow I saw good prices on Egypt air, however, wakañow says I can't book a one way ticket on Egypt air. . The reason given is that the airline requires a return ticket.

Has anyone experienced this? I know Egypt air appears to be one of the favourable airlines for our people here.

Please any advise/ input will be highly appreciated. Thank you.

Why not book on Egypt air website? Or go to their office and book.

Hello house, good day.

Please, what's the best way/route to get to London, Ontario..? My flight is from Lagos-Toronto but my final destination is London.

Also, anyone that has potential/available accommodation in London.?

Thanks

You should book a flight from Lagos to London, that takes out the stress of having to scuffle last minute at Toronto especially if you are a first time traveller to Canada. Don’t underestimate the stress you will go through.

However, if you booked your flight to Toronto, after clearing customs and getting your bags, you can book a flight to London at any of the local airline kiosk located at the airport.

You should sort out your accommodation first. That is priority!!!

I met someone today who clearly denied his nationality... When your accent, looks clearly shows Nigerian.

We met at a wear store in Toronto, we interacted and ask him his background and he denied his nationality straight up and said 'he's from the caribbean, which his actually from Nigeria.
I told him I'm a Nigerian and we exchanged number

Initially I knew this guy is a Nigerian and his whatsapp picture gave me double assurance.

But the issue is why are Nigerians in diaspora [/b]denying their origin?

[b]Majority of Nigerian living oversea has messed up and tarnished the issue of Nigeria. This people misused precious opportunities giving to them by the oyinbos.


Now we will be lamenting on the government back home, is the govt the problem here again? People will hardly give you regards here as a Nigerian. Nigerians are known for cheap scams.
[/b]The girls will never wanna date you as a Nigerian.[/b]

In Italy, landlords will never want to rent you their house once they discover you are a Nigerian.
In dubai, no job for Nigerians, its hard to get one
In SA, they are known for drugs and all sort of rubbish.
Infact all the country in the world won't want to associate once they knew you are a Nigerian, even some African countries

Yet we kept on blaming the government.

Even the ones back home has spoiled the country image internationally.
Calling her Zoo and all sort.

Are Nigerians abroad doing any better? NO

These people need to change their ways.
It's not few Nigerians, but Majority.

With respect to the ladies, not necessarily true. From experience, once they know you are Nigerian, you get priorities over other nationality. Lol.

Your conclusions are worrying and your level of generalization is troublesome.

My experiences alone faults all the conclusions you made.

Now to the issue at hand, it is his life- if he chooses to deny his origin, that is his problem to deal with not yours.

If person say e no be Nigerian, why e Dey pain you?

Goodday, please anyone with experience on the situation below please share your view.

1. Family COPR/Visa issued 18 May 2022
2. However, my child's US passport expires on Dec 26, 2022
3. I intend to travel end of July,2022 and by this time the passport will have less than six months validity
4. If I renew my child's US passport, will it nullify the COPR ( which has the previous passport number on it) and give issue at airport or border in Canada.

You can travel with that passport since the visa has already been issued.

Renew the passport when you get to Canada.

Hi Guys,

Does anyone know much about medical insurance in Canada and options for parents, and how this works?

• Does one has to be a permanent resident or citizen before getting medical insurance coverage for dependent parents, or can these be done by a temporary resident child who is still a student or a Canadian graduate under the Post Graduate Work Permit?

• Is it possible for parents to also be entitled to the government Medicare card? If the answer is yes, how does this work?

I would appreciate the thoughts of anyone who knows much about getting medical insurance coverage for parents.

Unless your parents are PR, they don’t qualify for the government insurance.

But they can get other private insurance. Check Manulife , they have some for visitors

Hello wonder people . I landed two weeks ago to edmonton , I’m looking for work o. At least make I start with customer service work. I’m female with a kid and husband . I don tailor my cv to fit Canadian resume . At ideas where I can go for help with work

Go to TD Bank career page, they are constantly recruiting customer service folks.

Also, apply to government jobs; start with CRA, CBSA, ESDC etc. but you would need to be patient as their recruitment timeline is long.

The link to find government job is https://emploisfp-psjobs.cfp-psc.gc.ca/psrs-srfp/applicant/page2440?classificationInfos=&locationsFilter=&selectionProcessNumber=&officialLanguage=&title=&tab=1&search=Search%20jobs&department=129&departments=&log=false

He owes you nothing.

Hi everyone,

I extended my study permit and child's visiting visa. I also applied for a TRV counterfoil for myself and my baby, i got PPR to sent my passport to Ottawa for stamping, no update on for my baby only for me to realize Canada doesn't do TRV counterfoil for applicants on Visitors Record.

Please i want to ask how do i apply for TRV counterfoil for infant who has Visitors Record in Canada.

Thank you


Visiting visa has validity period. If the visiting visa has expired or about to expire, an applicant can apply for extension of stay; if approved a visitor record will be given to the applicant specifying how long it is valid for.

Now, if you need the counterfoil, you will need to apply for a new visitor visa.

Go checkout the Saskatchewan government website for the answers.

Abeg, I need some clarification on a few things. I moved to Canada recently from the US, but I have employment history in Nigeria.
When Canadian employers use third parties like Certn to conduct employment checks, do they contact our employers in Nigeria? I'm going through a background check right now which includes employment checks. My experience is a little overstated and I'm worried the employment check will reveal this. Should I be worried? As far as I can read from the website, they say they will contact the HR of the company.

Yes, you should be worried.

In fact , you should be more worried about your inability to complete a given task (based on what you said you can do) if you do get the job and the snowballing effect this will have on your Canadian career journey since you overstated your previous experience.

No, you can’t. You are only allowed to work 20 hrs/ week. Starting a business is not part of it.

Your purpose is study; when you are done school and have a a work permit/PR you can do whatever you like.

Good evening house,

Please i need help on how to go about applying for visit visa for my mum.

I am post AOR via the permanent residence route….i should be getting my ppr tops next month (Amen)

I’d like my mum to accompany us to ease settlement as myself and hubby will be relocating with 4kids.

Please what and what is expected of me to provide for her visa application especially as i plan we leave Nigeria together.

Thank you.

She will need to apply normally like anyone else.

Post AOR means nothing in this case. If you have your PR and/or landed, that might sway their minds.

But as Ednut advised, you/she would need to satisfy the visa officer that your mum meets the requirements of the visitor visa.
