Good day All,

I recently got PPR (family of 3). I am in a dilemma and I would appreciate your opinions as to which option to go with. My wife works with one of the Big 4s and she needs to give them 3months notice b4 resignation.

Let her drop the resignation letter now. Wait out the 3 months together. Carefully plan your departure within the period. Seriously, there is no need to rush, except you already have a job offer in canada. You even get to save more money. All the best.

Will FRSC respond or you will need a FRSC official to fast track the application?

They will respond when the letter is ready but they will not acknowledge receipt of your mail.

Thanks for your response. I appreciate.
Im just having doubts If provinces can give one nomination without he/she having work experiences.
I doubt the person that responded to you read what you wrote fully.
Work experience is a requirement for skilled worker immigration path in Canada. Even if you apply for provincial nomination, your proof of work experience will be required.
Just saw that you got accurate response later.

Nigerians are more cooperative than you give credit for. This group on nairaland started with people's journeys and experience shared freely and we have all benefited.
You articulated my thoughts perfectly. I don't know where people get the idea that anyone is competing. If people are competing, this thread or the living in canada thread will not exist. We need to have a mental shift and stop imagining things that aren't necessarily true.

Hello everyone. Pls does anyone know anything about Slavelake in Alberta. How the place is, job prospects, weather etc. I didn’t think getting admission for practical nursing will be this complicated despite already having a science related degree. All the the colleges I have applied to did not give a positive response. I reside in Ontario with my family.

I dont know anything about Slavelake but I know someone without a science background that got admission into the licence practical nurse programme at bow valley college in calgary. Maybe you should check that out.

I remembered you wanted to take the PEBC EE next Jan. Guess you are considering career switch now smiley

Pls I need an accomodation around Downtown Vancouver, British Columbia.

Anybody with useful info or help on this will be greatly appreciated.
Budget is max of 800CAD.

Check craiglist website. I am not sure you will get an accommodation at that price in downtown vancouver.
P.S I am not in Vancouver. But you can check settle_in_British_Columbia_ IG page. She has settlement services for people moving to BC.

As an immigrant, what compelled you to leave Canada permanently even after getting your PR or citizenship?

I smile when I read responses like this on quora.
It is only a fool that will not apply his/herself to knowledge about the work culture and wisely adapt to the new country.
You cannot consistently do the same thing and get a different result. If you interview the person that made this comment, he/she probably lacks the soft skills needed to do the job according to canadian standard. Your technical skills( university education and knowledge) is only about 20% of what is needed to do the job in canada.
And anyone that reads this quora report and decides canada is not for them should probably reevaluate their reason for emigration.

And what is exactly wrong with such organization? I am yet to find anyone with a concrete reason aside from uninformed assumptions about them.
Their business model may not be for everyone but this is almost norm with any 100% commission based firm in the insurance industry.

If i have any reservation about them, it's probably ,most offices recruit anyone ,hoping to train them, which sometimes doesn't work as anticipated.

Anyway, everyone should do their due diligence before joining any company.

smileyyou sounded a bit defensive. The link to the article attached to the comment was quite educative and nobody said anything was wrong (or right) about the organization.
And I agree that everyone should do their due diligence.

Hello guys!

Please is there any pharmacist on this forum? I’ll really love to link up with a pharmacist currently in Canada. Thanks, hope to hear from someone.
I am, though currently in the licencing process.

Exactly....another thing is that Nigerians in Canada are not helpful atall...do you know that Philippines have an organization that bring their country people to Canada as caregivers.....Indians have conquered truck driving company in Canada simply by helping others to migrate and start same job...am sorry to say this Nigerians are too selfish for their own good ..I chatted lots of Nigerians in Canada because of this immigration pathway some ended up snubbing me ..some blocked me ....if I enter Canada tomorrow I will seize to be called a Nigerian

Coming to a faceless forum and asking people for the kind of help you requested is absurd.
It is not just about giving you an offer of employment just to appease someone they dont know.
Nobody wants to be on the wrong side of the law in Canada.

And because they thought of their own best interest first makes them selfish!
Have you thought about their living conditions in canada or if they meet the requirement for the program?
Do you even know if they have such plans for their own relatives?

You shouldn't sound so entitled in your quest for help.
Your reasons are valid but the way you are going on about it is not.

And nigerians in canada are very helpful. That's why you have various threads showing you how to get into canada legally.

Seniors, any guidance on GST/HST credit... Being a newcomer and unable to get a job or know how long this lockdown would last for, is it advised to apply as soon as possible, and from experience is there any demerits with applying so soon?

Would appreciate honest replies... Thanks

If you havent applied for benefit before now, the chances that you will be paid the one off GST/HST credit is very slim as it will be rolled out on April 9th.

If your intention was to do a soft landing but got locked in as a result of the pandemic, application for benefits should be put on hold till you are ready to take up residence . That is just my opinion.

Wow, that's quite a long time. I will be out by then. Do u know if it would be faster if I go to their office or is there any other way to fast track it?
I honestly do not know. I didnt need it again by the time it was ready. And I applied when I got here.

Pharmacists in the house...

Please is there any thread on PEBC Exams here on Nairaland? I did check but did not find much here. There is just so much to read and with a pass rate of 47% (more than half of those who write the exams fail it) it will be great to have a thread where we (Nigerians) could discuss study tips, resources and ideas.

I am happy to start one but need to be sure there isn't one already that I may have missed in my search.

If you are in Alberta, you can join the Directions for immigrants study group.

“My experience was amazing! Kudos to Directions for Immigrants” says Jonas, former group participant.

The upcoming study groups start in February 2020. We are already screening candidates, and seats are limited!

Call today to book an appointment to determine your eligibility 403-770-5155.

Don’t forget that we can also assist you with your job search, just ask your career coach for help in setting up an action plan to help you move forward with your employment goal.
