If you want to relocate to Canada from Nigeria and access all the benefits of a permanent Canadian resident, then you must read this post.
For the past 2 months, I have been receiving lots of email requests to publish an article about relocating to Canada from Nigeria.
Usually, I don’t pay much attention to such email requests to publish a post because I always have my content calendar mapped out up till the next 3 months.
Also, there are many other websites out there with tons of information on how to relocate to Canada from Nigeria.
But I guess the people who sent the requests just want something real and genuine that is coming from a trusted source.
And since I have never been to Canada myself, I did not bother posting anything about this topic until now, because it is normal for most people to judge the authenticity of information based on the personal experience of the person sharing it.
But now, I think I have every reason to share this now!
This is because early last month, I finally found a trustworthy fellow, a Nigerian man who processed his entire immigration to Canada all by himself.
The most amazing thing about this is that this man even got a job just within 2 weeks of arriving in Canada.
Upon that, he has also helped close to 50 persons migrate to Canada from Nigeria as well.
Now the article you are reading now is based on my interaction with him, and everything he shared with me.
As for me, I am already planning my pathway out of this country, so I am open to lots of information.
The overall living condition in Nigeria is a difficult one.
And because of that, I really will not push the blame on anyone who in a bid to pursue a better life for themselves and their family decides to leave the country.
It will surprise you, but Canada is home to over 100,000 Nigerians.
It’s the truth, and upon that, Canada is a great country to live in.

But To Relocate To Canada From Nigeria, You Must “Shine Your Eyes”
A lot of people end up wasting so much money than they budgeted in an attempt to secure visas and relocate to Canada.
But if you open your eyes to opportunities, then you simply will not waste so much money trying to process your relocation.
Here’s what you should know…
Between 2018 and 2020, the Canadian government targeted to bring in about 1 million immigrants.
You may have heard of this already. But just in 2018, over 82,000 people have already migrated to Canada and were welcomed by the Canadian authorities.
I understand that 1 million is a whole lot of people, but does it mean anyone who applies will be allowed to enter? Of course not!
First and foremost, the Canadian immigration program is best for people who are between 22 and 45 years of age.
So people older than 45 might find it more difficult to permanently relocate to Canada from Nigeria and many other developing countries.
But if you are lucky enough to be within the age bracket of 22-45, and you want to relocate to Canada, the BEST TIME to move is NOW.
This is 2022, and the slot is almost filled up.
And we are not certain of when the Canadian portal will close for immigrants.
Why Permanent Relocation To Canada Will Be Difficult Beyond 2023
This is mainly because of the constant change in Canada’s immigration policy.
So what does this mean?
The more the 1 million slot allocated to foreigners looking for permanent residence in Canada gets filled up, the tighter the policies get.
Day by day, the minimum requirements for accepting foreigners into Canada increase. And in the nearest future, the requirements that got people into Canada this year may not be the same as the requirements next year.
Canada’s immigration policy must have tightened up by then.
What this simply means is that the best time for you, especially as a Nigerian to process your relocation to Canada is today.
Waiting for another 6 months when the policies must have tightened up will end up making it a more herculean task.
Why A Lot Of People Won’t Succeed in Permanently Relocating To Canada
Relocating to Canada is a huge investment.
This is especially if you already have a family whom you would like to follow while you move to Canada.
The simple truth is that relocating to Canada is not for everyone more is if you are struggling to put food on the table
If anyone tells you otherwise, do not believe them.
Permanently relocating to Canada will mean leaving almost everything you may have set up in your current location for a new place.
It will cost you a lot of money.
Though I do not have the details, I will give you a rough estimate of the amount of money you can spend while trying to relocate and work in Canada.
- Just the permanent resident application fee cost around $550 for an adult and $150 for a child.
- The IELTS exam in Nigeria (English test) alone cost at least N75,000 for each person (Which your spouse will also take if you are married)
- Plane tickets are also another source of concern especially if you are moving with your family.
I know these may not be a big issue for some people.
And if you are certain that raising the funds for your migration to Canada will not be a big issue, then here is the next thing you must know;
The whole Canadian immigration program is based on what is called a CRS point.
If you are able to achieve a very high CRS point, then congratulations! 80% of your job is done.
The CRS cut-off mark for every month is announced at the month-end. So, there is no specific figure for it.
For example, on 31st May 2021, the cut-off figure announced for the Canadian express entry was 380.
That means that all those who scored a minimum of 380 were issued an ITA (Invitation to Apply).
Achieving this CRS cut-off mark is the main criterion and it is calculated based on factors like education, age range, work experience, your use of the English language, and others.
And guess what??
If you can be able to get a very high CRS point within the next 3 months, you could start packing your bags for Canada very soon.
A lot of people do not understand how this whole thing works and this explains the reason why they keep throwing money at various immigration agents and wasting their money.
This one is not by who you know again, it is by what you know. And if you end up getting the wrong information, you will keep spending more money monthly looking for shortcuts to this.
I believe that with all the knowledge I have passed on to you now, there is absolutely no need of wasting your money unnecessarily on any immigration agent as regards moving to Canada.
Now all that is left for you is to find out how to get a very high CRS point and secure your relocation to Canada as soon as possible.
If you are very much interested in relocating to Canada, then you should go over and watch this 50 minutes video. This video was created by the man I mentioned earlier.
It explains everything you need to know to get a very high CRS point and relocate to Canada from Nigeria successfully without having to waste lots of your money.
