Before You Relocate From Nigeria To Canada...Some Things You Need To Know
Shortly after my first degree in 2005 and while waiting for my NYSC posting, I began searching for things to do to keep me productively engaged. It was around this time a friend told me about the USA's Diversity Visa Program.
This is almost similar to Canada's Express Entry Program. However, one is based on random selection of candidates while the other is based on points. In the end, both improve your chances of getting permanent residency in the respective countries.
The same friend told me about an agent who'd help us fill our applications... and blah blah blah. The long and short of it, we applied and we lost but the agent got paid his fees. The irony is: people are still losing huge chunk of their life-savings to so-called travel agents who are after the wads of currency they'd get from you for doing next to nothing.
In this short post, if you are still here, I will share with you a few things you ought to know before you make your japa moves. Just for clarity:
The word japa [pronounced jakpa] is a Nigerian slang for emigration or relocation. Literally, it is a Yoruba way of saying run swiftly.
5 Things You Must Know If You Want To Relocate From Nigeria To Canada, Even If You Are In Your 40s And Above
Considering how things are in Nigeria right now, I don't blame any Nigerian who wants a better life for themselves and their family. Canada is a great country, and more than 200,000 Nigerians live here.
As a permanent resident in Canada, you enjoy:
- Your children will get a free, good education.
- Healthcare that is both free and good.
But if you want to move to Canada, you need to keep your eyes open so you don't waste a lot of money trying to move without help. First, let's do this...
(1) The truth is that it's hard to move to Canada if you have low CRS scores and are older than 35. People with a Master's degree between the ages of 22 and 35 and between 22 and 35 years old do very well in Canada's immigration programs. If you are over 40, it will be hard for you to immigrate through the regular programs.
But it can be done, but you have to have a plan! And I know a lot of older people who have either given up or watched their Canadian dream die on its own because they couldn't do anything about it. There are still a few ways to immigrate for people in their 40s and older, and we'll talk about those in a minute.
(2) Canada's immigration policies change from time to time. So, this is what it means: As more and more people are able to get into Canada after applying, the rules get tighter and tougher.
Before, your chances of moving to Canada went up if you were older and had more work experience. But the minimum requirements that let people over 65 into Canada three to five years ago won't let them in now.
This means that now is the best time for you to start the immigration process. If you wait another 6 months, the rules could change and become even stricter.
People who live outside of Canada can no longer apply for permanent residency in Canada as at the end of the first quarter of 2021. This has been relaxed with the recent reopening the Express Entry route.
It is however important to note that while the restriction was actively in place, there is still one group of people that Canada is "desperate" to have, and I will show you how to be one of them. Just keep reading!
(3) Moving to Canada costs a lot of money, especially if you have a family. This is just the plain truth. Moving to Canada is NOT a good idea for everyone, especially if you are still having trouble making ends meet. Trust me when I say that no matter which route you choose...
Even if you are in your 40s, moving to Canada will cost you a lot of money. You need to know how much money you need, how long you need to have it, and what the immigration officers will accept as proof of money.
(4) Right now, you need a CRS [Comprehensive Ranking System] score of more than 470 to get an invitation to apply for immigration. Every month, the CRS cut-off score for getting an invitation to apply for permanent residence has gotten higher.
In fact, the minimum CRS points for those who participated in the Express Entry draw held on August 03, 2022 was 533!
Normal immigration depends on getting this CRS point, which is based on things like age, education, work experience, use of English language, etc. And it's at an all-time high right now....
Making it even harder for older people to become eligible. This is because as you get older, you lose points against your age every year.
I have made a detailed video that shows and explains step by step how a 42-year-old Nigerian man moved to Canada without any problems, and how you can do exactly what he did to move there too.
The information in the video shows that you don't have to give up on your dream of moving to Canada if you are close to 40 years old and have a CRS score of less than 400. You still have a chance. More on this in the workshop.
(5) You don't need an agent or facilitator to help you process your Visa from start to finish. Yes, you read that right. Whether you know it or not, a typical agent is after their own financial gain and are never concerned with you actually get the Visa or not.
Depending on the country and category of Visa, some agents charge anywhere between ₦450,000 and ₦1,500,000 to facilitate Visa interviews/appointments. This is never a guarantee you'd end up with the Visa in your hand.
There's been a case of two Nigerians who lost $368,698 or over ₦153 million to an agent in 2016.
Most people who engage the services of these agents or facilitators don't know they can successfully do these things themselves and from the comfort of their home for less than $200!

Get It Right and Save Yourself The Unnecessary Headaches With The Workshop: The EASIEST and MOST ACCESSIBLE WAY to Relocate to Canada This Year from Any Country in The World
There are tonnes of information about immigration to Canada. This is understandable. Many people want to move to places where they can experience the life of their dreams and Canada is one of such places. However, not every information out is 100% accurate.
For example, I recall my chat with a young man in mid-2018. He wanted to promote a digital product about how to relocate to Canada. Nothing wrong in creating and selling information to people who need it. It becomes a cause for concern when the person creating and selling this information has no experience with what he is giving out.
The fellow has been to Canada before and any information from him would some degree of inaccuracy. You will agree with me that people just want something real that is coming from someone who has actually had the experience that they seek.
Information for those with low CRS scores who are 40 years of age and above is very scarce! And the little that you can find is vague and not valuable because they are not from personal experience, but from people who just piece information together.
The host of the workshop you will join shortly has been in Canada for some years now and is actively a Student Ambassador to a globally ranked Canadian university, Brock. She has proofs and you can bank the information provided in the workshop and in her paid detailed guide.
