@Eraytee. I (poster) already specified in my post that the PhD is from a Nigerian University.
So the bolded statement made by @Tope235 is correct.
I appreciate everyones concern and time. Thanks you
@bold is not true for all, Maybe only in Nigeria Universities, but outside naija there is transcripts because you will even do coursework before you start your research fully. this is my own case

@thank for the consideration.
@Tope235 has confirmed no Transcript is issued for PhD. He mentioned we need a conferral letter in addition to the PhD certificate.
This Could be a valuable info on page 1
Won't fly. They are evaluating the transcript, not the certificate.
He doesn't have transcript at all, or the transcript is not ready yet?
| Travel / Re: Canadian Express Entry/federal Skilled Workers Program - Connect Here Part 10 by titiclassy: 5:28pm On Sep 28, 2020 |
@Tope235 thanks for the confirmation. I will tell him we have to get the PhD conferral letter from the school.
Transcripts are not issued for PhD holders, He needs a Proof of Award Letter or a letter of conferral. It is a must.

Very informative! That's quite economical for the students o.
Thanks bro /sis
I am sorry, I guess I didn't do a good job at making a distinction between the two. Discounted student passes are not the same as school bus passes. To get an "Adult" student discount, all you need is to be enrolled in a post secondary education recognized by your city's transit commission. This pass is paid for out of pocket by you to the transit commission(not covered for by Tuition). It is not issued by the school and the school is not involved in the application/administration. To get it, every year you'd have to take your school photo id to the transit commission to be registered for a discounted pass. In Toronto, after you are approved by Toronto Transit Commission(TTC), you have to top up your presto card every month with a TTC student pass. The school I currently attend in Toronto and the schools you made mention of do not issue student bus passes. So in Toronto we basically get a $30 TTC student discount that brings the cost down to $120 per month or $1440 per year.
On the other hand, schools outside the GTA traditionally offer "free" school bus pass to their students. To put things to perspective, when I was in University of Western Ontario, we got a free bus pass. The pass is issued by the University, you don't top it up. The way it worked was that the Student Council had a collective agreement with London Transit commission(LTC). All students get charged a fraction for this bus pass in their mandatory tuition fees. It didn't matter if you needed it or had a car, the charge is compulsory. Checking my previous Western tuition breakdown, the charge was about $263 per year. If Western had left students to their fate like many schools in the GTA do, Western students would have had to use the LTC adult student discount option instead. This way, Western students would have had to pay $83per month, which comes to about $989 per year.
So you see that a discounted student pass is not the same as a school bus pass.
| Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 12:55am On Aug 31, 2020 |
Yes that's what i meant.
Interesting to know that schools offer free transportation.
I am not clamouring for Ontario schools, i only wanted to contribute to the discussion and let the concerned people know subsidized transportation for the schools i was considering in GTA
Do you mean the TTC discount for post secondary students? Where they pay $120 for monthly pass instead of $150?
There are schools outside of the GTA/Ontario that offer FREE transportation for post secondary students.
| Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 5:15am On Aug 30, 2020 |
Wait.. Let me be sure that we are referring to the samething, :
I am talking of discounted transport ticket purchase. If this is it then I am very very sure Sheridan, Humber, Seneca, Centennial has.
If this is different from subsidized bus passed, then pls ignore my comments
Which schools did you consider? I attend a school in Toronto and we do not have. There are also at least 3 other schools in toronto and one in Brampton that I know that do not have. So, I am really curious to learn the schools that you considered and confirmed that has.
| Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 11:47am On Aug 29, 2020 |
I doubt if to be a is any schooll that wld not have sha. All d gta schools i considered for my program had it.
You really had to rub it in abi? Diaris God o
Well, it is mainly schools in the GTA that dont have bus passes. Schools in london like Fanshawe and Western had.

I have a group of IT professionals.. Are you into IT?
Hi Guys, I currently reside in BC and I hope to move to Ontario by Summer or fall of next year (2021). My wife and I intend moving to Ontario to enable us afford to be able to buy a house as the cost of living in BC where we are is ridiculous and getting into the housing market might be crazy here. I am hoping I can join a group for pple who live in Ontario who are professionals for networking hopefully to get a job, discuss housing and getting a place in Ontario (Obviously outside GTA) and maybe commute to GTA or not if needed and based on where we are able to get a job and still get best value for our money. If there are groups like this with pple with goals and visions like this I hope to be added to it.

I know guys who buy used cars here.. And export to Naija to sell. Infact on the guys goes around to pick up used bicycles, children toys and load it inside the cars before the cars are moved into the containers. He has someone in naija that buys the bulk of those bicycles and stuff. You can also sell naija foods here in Nigeria.. The success depends on food preservation, packaging of d food and how fast u can move them from naija to canny. Eg there is store that is very good with yams, she said she moves them by air.. There is another store that is notorious for spoil yams.. Probably she moves them on d sea which takes weeks.. Just guessing. I know there are agro export courses you can attend in Naija and make connections with those farm produce women
Encourage by your testimony TT,
I'd like to find out from your experience so far, what kind of business do you think one could do in Canny which involves import and export between Nigeria and Canny. Equipment, machines, agriculture, cars etc. What can you advice someone who's still in Nigeria at the moment based on your experience.

My conscience will not allow me to hold the testimony. It's been 18 months
Between Feb 2019 and June 2019, I went for several interviews but didn't land any job offer. Na so I enrol for a 8 months (2 semester) Project Mgt post graduate course at least to receive some OSAP benefits and qualify for free child care. The plan had been that I will do 9-5 while hubby do his self employed runs like in Naija, but God turned it around. By June 2019, we say make hubby try apply. I was d one who did his resume and applied for a technical consultant role, na so baba get the job o (1st job application, 1st interview) . Me, I waited till I finished school in April 2020 before I started trying again to apply. Na so I get two offers as a IT Business Analyst, same level I was back home.
I want to thank the seniors on this platform who encouraged us to land in GTA despite the competition for IT jobs with the indians. We have really enjoyed our stay and winter not to bad here.
Also, to the glory of God we bought our house 1 year after landing. OSAP funding joined with POF savings helped. We never wanted Brampton, but Brampton isn't bad at all.. Especially if one is lucky to get a relatively new settlement. Our story gives encouragement to newcomers and I cannot overemphasize the power of connection. The Nigerians we met in our church really tried in giving us information on how to make quick progress here. Even though we never planned to attend a Naija church, the harmony in this particular medium sized church is amazing.
Let me close by looking for small trouble :
@smileymum @Zutlin : shey you guys will also be putting "black lives matter" on ur whatsapp status and social media. When I was sharing in the landing gist that we experienced some discrimination at the Frankfurt airport, both of u open teeth like say u know Oyinbo people that well. George Floyd and Jacob Blake are only 2 of the numerous killings... Direct and systemic racism still very much around. But through it all, we overcome.

I understand your situation @barryston. We were in the same situation 5 weeks ago. Keep checking you will see a landlord or landlady that will just like your family and waive the requirements. Bear in mind that some of them will require 4minths payments in advance... If u like the location of the house and the house itself... I will say just make d payment for 4 months

Thanks titiclassy! As AZeD1 said, don’t indicate in your invitation letter that your MIL is coming to help watch your baby, you can say she’s coming to visit. There’s no ‘guide’ to how much money is required to be in your account. Just ensure it’s enough to actually cover her expenses for the period she would be with you. She should include her statement of account as well.
If she doesn’t work or trade, you can attach a C of O of a house/landed property in her name to show ties. If she was working and is now retired, there are portions to indicate what she did before retirement, if possible also attach any doc pertaining to her retirement.
Anyone else with other ideas can chip in
@Iyamefa there is no C of O in her name, the house she stays is in her child's name. She also does not have any account running. Please I need your advise on how to go about this. She was a trader before she retired. No documentation whatsoever.
| Travel / Re: Living In Canada/Life As A Canadian Immigrant Part 2 by titiclassy: 8:15am On Apr 16, 2019 |
Are you already in Canada and settled? If yes,it’s not compulsory to notarize the letter of invitation. It’s not stated anywhere on the application that this letter should be notarized. I applied for my parents including this letter which I simply typed and attached and their applications have since been approved.
@Iyamefa, thanks for all the tips and advice you give here. God bless you.
I just got to Canada 2 months ago and I want to invite my MIL to stay with my 10 months old baby for 6 months after which he will start day care. I will be resuming work soon.
How much details do I put in my invitation letter as per reason for coming and duration of stay?
How much money do I show in my Canada account?
How do I justify MIL family ties back in Nigeria as she doesn't work or trade?
We are a family of 4.. Myself, hubby and 2 kids

You have just made Lufthansa appealing to me with with the luggage allowance thingy but please explain the two boxes to a person thing, does that mean I can have 2 each also for my little kids too even though they are minors (ages 6 and 4 yrs)?
hand luggage- and a back pack ( makes 2 cabin luggage s).
So that applies to adults and children but not infant
Expo: You can have a diaper bag for infant.. use d biggest diaper bag u find in d stores so u can have some enough hand room .
On some occasions , just before boarding..the airline may allow people to check-in their hand luggage as well..which was my experience.

Thanks so much for the offer. You are faarr too kind. We spoke on phone.
LANDING GIST (LANDED 2 WEEKS AGO)
ALL THE THANKS TO GOD
We booked LUFTHANSA flight for 14th February (yes oo..that was the VAL gift for the family). We went to Lufthansa office in VI so it was cheaper.My hubby doenst joke with his comfort , so he paid for extra leg room, especially because we are flying with a baby and a toddler. Prior to our leaving, when people ask me how i feel about the relocation..I just say hopeful! even when family and friends were super excited on my behalf, me I just dey hopeful o not anxcious, not sad, but hopeful!..hahaha. I stopped work a week and half before trip. I was given a surprise sendforth party at work which encouraged me a great deal and made me rethink leaving known for unknown..but the retink didnt last formore than a minute... grin In preparation for the winter I had gon to Yaba to gt some gears. was fortunate to meet a merchant that had very nice things...so i made 3 different trips to his place and ended up buying more than i planned (my luggage allowance paid for it but I am enjoying the nice wears now)
I started packing our luggages ..7 checked in luggaages (5 for clothes, shoes, books, alums,household stuff, 2 for some nija food stuff...)thank God for the list that was shared here... i forgot my broom and shea butter sha.. The digital hand scale helped but i still did strong head over packed some bags (especially hand luggaes). I had a special hand luggage dedicated for beans and poundo..it was weighing about 15kg..but when nairaland people told me not to try it...i repsected myslef , found a way to distribute te beans and poundo into checked in luggage while i tranfered shoes and boots into hand luggage. lest I forget I also had..3 hand luggages, 3 back packs, one diaper bag ( i smuggeled my entire heavy jeweries and beads into teh diaper bag..heheheh.. when only jewelry and beads were weighing 5kg (pls facefront o).
Fast forward to the d-day..parents and inlaws saw us off to teh airport, we took some pictures and said bye bye..that was around 3pm...5hours before check in commenced.
we paid 4k for the 2 bags that contained foodstuff. All of a suddden I started fidgetting, feeling guity that my bags will not pass due to over-weight. So i approached one of teh airline officials and reported myself to him that I have over-weight bags and that he should pls help me when the time comes for check-in (my hubby got so pissed at me). that was how teh guy started exploiting my fear...he took teh bags and went to weigh them, he told us we were overshooting our allowance by 22kg or so and mentioned that teh only solution was to pay for an extra 23kg which costs $300 there about...i started widing my husband to allow us beg him to collect 50k.na so the guy do shakara for us and left us. At once my husband told me in 'Yoruba' 'u better start offloading all the off-loadables. That was how I jejely put my baby in his stroller and started off-loading some stuff- removd 2 pack of beans out of 3, 2 kegs of plam oit out of 4, 2 of my heavy shoes, 1 family picture frame out of 2, 2 semolina out of 3,one one heavy butfine hand bag that my sister has been craving to collect..that was how all teh luggages came into teh 23.5-24 kg range and teh hand luggages 8kg. I packed all those extra into a GMG i bought at the airport , I begged one of the customer service ladies to keep it till a friend come to get it that evening. We were given priority check -in due because of my baby..infact having an infant travelling realy paves the way. we were given priority for all queues.
My family was a sight to behold during secuity checking and proceeding for boarding due to our plenty load, (7 cabin bags o...with babay stroller and car seat) i cant try that kind of cabin load again moving with kids. Just before boarding they announced that those with more than 1 cabin bags should come and checkin the extras..we were so happy..my husband took 3 of our 'buddens' to add to our check-in to eb collected at final destination-toronto
Our first trip was very comfortable cos of the extra leg room seats, food was just there.My kids were given toys, coloring book and crayons, snacks too. We all slept for most part of the flight.We landed at frankurt airport and here we had to trek an dtrek before we located our boarding gate. Anyways we experienced a little bit of racism by one of the Air canada officials..they called for priority boarding for anyone with infant and i and my family proceeded to the fornt but she was shocked we were blacks and said we shld hold on (for no explainable reason o)but her coleague interupted and said some words in German and ended it with 'its not fair'..so that was how we sha proceeded into ths bus that took s to the plane. Lest i forget our air Canada flight from Frankfurt to Toronto was delyed for 2 hours..all ths people jst they look us..and We were the only blacks in this flight. I just told my husband that my Nairaland people too like cheap...Ethiopian and Egypt air. Seriously...i was looking for just 1 of u guys..common! smiley
The flight to Toronto was just there..we seat felt cramped..ot that they were bad but we had enjoyed space in teh previous flight..my baby and toddler wer emre active and demanding..but honestly..they behaved better than i had imagened..we imagened the worst..it was their first flght. Good movies We landed Pearson airport at around 3:50pm. We proceeded to immigration. they scanned our passports, minuted on our declaration card and then showed us to take the elevator downstairs to luggage claim. We got our luggages gt one of the luggage movers to move the luggages for $15 or so. We took our bags to customs, they didnt check our bags, she just asked me if we had anythng chicken..and i siad NO, God forbid (in my naija head i was like...chai i shld av smuggled some knorr chicken oo..see as this people no chekc anything..lol)
That was we left customs and proceeded to exit ..yes o EXIT...We missed out teh boarder service part o!..i totally forgot all the steps Nairaland and other Seniors had mentioned. Our famility friends were outside with their cars waiting for us..we came out of teh airport and lo and behold the cold welcomed us no be for here oooo..you cant imagen...i was almost crying for my baby in teh stroller..because the guy frowned face o.. it was colder than my freezer in lagos o..i mean it.
We drove to our airbnb in South mississauga..very lovely apartment ..our friends brougt plenty jollof rice, naija style chicken, efo riri and friends stew... 3 big bottles of jice..some snacks..We gisted a bit..then ate some jollof and we all went to sleep...Our sleep and wake up schedule was 'wakked' for teh next 4-5 days o..it seems we were always eating in the midnight (naija morning time). It was while I was gisting with a landed senior that I confirmed that we had missed a major step of COPR signing and Visa stamping..I also double checked with my Indian coleagues on whatsapp group (lol). Guess what.some people feel we wld be told to return to naija and re-enter. My slef ad my husband cld not relax well on sunday o .... Thank God Monday 18th was family holiday in Canada..so we begged our family friend to come pick us back to teh airport. it snowwed heavily tht morning but we didnot even mind..My prayers was that they shld do our landing proper for us. We located Boarder service and teh guy iniially shakara us that we will have to re-eter Canada. I almost started crying o. I started speaking all the british english i could told him nobody directed us to sign COPR..that we are not awrae of were to go next after immmigration or customs.. so that was how he directed us to anotehr of his coleague and that one now had mercy on us. Na back door (staff lobby) we take enter the COPR area o. We signed COPR, landing date was taken as that day MOnday instaed of the previous Friday. We also got our SIN. We ot back to airbnb feeling releived. made poundo with our efo riro and drank juice and slept.
Fast forward to current situation..we opened account with RBC (1 year free charges on transactions, $2000 credit card each), wrote G1and passed (hubby will get a trainer and write G next week), we got mobile phone package from Rogers (2 huawei p2 pro phones, 11 gig shared for $140). We booked appointment with settlement agencies New commer center of Peel, Access employment information session, COSTI . We attended a small church in our area and teh pastrs wife have been giving my chidren things, toys clothes, eve booster seat for my toddler (the uber drivers cld not take us witout this. Moving around with uber has been expensive but we got to do what we have to do ..its only for a while. The House hunting..chai..it has been discouraing.. the apartments have been asking for requirements (job letters, credit history) that we dont have. Even basement owners does not want to take me with babies...2 of them gave excuses of not being comfortable to put small kids in basement. We got a basement in Brampton but we no too like teh basement..we are still searching sha. Our airbnb runs out in few days and we have an option of a 3 months short rent in a furnished aprtment..its a little above our budget but i guess we will just take it .Myself and hubby are both in the IT domain so we dont want to go out of the GTA. We have started looking for jobs too..and we will keep trying out churches and networking events. Because of the children..we might have to take turns going out. However i learnt that government will bear cost of daycare for the first 12 months if I get a job or go to school. Health card will not be ready till after 3 months. That was how my baby was sick for 2 days and I had to maanage it with hot bath, robb, tynenol painkillers and prayers.. I am praying that no one gets ill again o. meanwhile the plenty winter wears have been serving us well o. even our family frinds says they are nice. We have been going to Square One mall every other day to enjoy savory meals and shop groceries in wallmart..may God help our POF..lol

Welcome to our Canada. May you find favour.
Sis, it seems you run into conclusions a lot sha. Lol. The same way you assumed that you were racially profiled is the same way you assume that folks here use Egypt Airline and Ethiopian Airlines because it's cheap. My dear, it is not necessarily the cost that determines the good patronage they are enjoying. I have flown with different airlines in my travelling life. I for one like Ethiopian Airlines because of their flight time and short layover. My MIL is supposed to be coming sometime in summer to help with my kids. When I tried booking her flight at the time, I surprisingly saw KLM at a cheaper price, but the longer layover discouraged me from booking. I went with Ethiopian Airlines instead cos of the short layover and based on advice from my neighbor in Nigeria who works as a travel agent. So you see, while it may be the cost (which isn't the case at all times anyway) that makes people use them, it might just be other things that attract people to them. Don't forget Ethiopian Airlines is actually one of the biggest airlines in the world today. People have given good reviews about them over time. So my sis, don't assume. Person use Nigerian Airways or Virgin Atlantic come Canada, na the same Canada we dey come. It doesn't have anything to do with anything. It doesn't determine your race here.
The Ethiopian air vs Lufthansa part was a little humor thrown into the gist. It's not worth you having an headache over. And that was the only part you cld comment on. If you don't have encouraging words for a newly landed, at least u can keep 'shut'.
There are good people on this thread looking out for more important info such as landing proceedings, how to help people with settling, and then we have those on the other side... looking for faults in ur posts and how to prove they know better (in real life they are dealing with inferiority complex)
Abeg Hanty don't come and use me to score points. Leave my landing gist and move on. Pick any airline and enter. I am not advertising for any of them

I personally cannot come to such a strong and sensitive conclusion by hearing 'It's not fair' after so much have been said in some other language. I though she understood the language and I was going to say she should have reported the airline staff before boarding her flight - just so the offender is called to order and stopped from doing same to someone else.
That one na ur own analysis o..keep it to ur pocket. And I didn't tell u MUCH was said in their language. Na me dey d scenario. U cld av ignored that part of the gist instead of interpreting in ur own imagination. And I told u I picked some words in their language..isn't that enough for u. Nigerians..na this oversabi and attacking spirit they worry all of una
