4 Programs for Immigrating from Nigeria to Canada

Many people worldwide dream of immigrating to and starting a new life in Canada. The country offers excellent quality healthcare, a healthy economy, a high standard of education, and more—all of which are factors of good quality of life. 

One area of the world from which Canada has experienced a massive upsurge in immigration is Nigeria. In fact, it is one of the most significant sources of Canada’s immigrant population. If you are from Nigeria and are interested in immigrating to Canada, there are several ways to do this, which we will outline in this article.

1. The Express Entry Program

The most popular method to get into Canada is the Express Entry program. Under this program, applicants who want to immigrate to and earn their permanent residence status in the country are scored on various factors. 

For example, scores are derived from the education that the to-be immigrant has received, their work experience, the languages they speak, and so on. The higher the score an individual receives, the higher their chances of getting picked to apply for immigration into Canada. 

Note that you can use this program alongside other programs, such as the Canadian Experience Class and the Federal Skilled Worker programs to increase the chances of success.

2. The Start-Up Visa Program 

For those looking to start a business in Canada, the Start-Up Visa Program is an excellent way to enter Canada. Canada is always on the lookout for talented and business-minded individuals to boost the country’s economy. As such, they provide visas to qualified entrepreneurs. Also, once the business has been fully established, the program allows for the immigrant to earn permanent residence status.

3. The Family Sponsorship Program

For individuals with family members in Canada, the Family Sponsorship Program is a possible avenue of immigrating into the country. However, it is up to the sponsor themselves to satisfy several requirements. For example, they need to be at least eighteen years of age, a citizen or permanent resident of Canada and have the financial resources to support the sponsored person for the duration of their stay. Many other requirements need to be followed, but if they do satisfy them all, they can act as a medium to welcome their loved ones into the country.

4. The Provincial Nominee Program

Applicants sometimes pair this program with the Express Entry Program since being nominated gives a lot of points. As the name implies, a province can nominate certain individuals they believe can contribute to their demographic and economic needs. As such, they go around hand-picking individuals to stay in their territories. In fact, this is one of the fastest ways to gain permanent residency simply because said territories want that individual to stay.

Conclusion 

These are just some of the many programs Canada offers that help immigrants enter the country and obtain permanent residency status. Take the time to research more about each of these pathways to identify your most suitable option. If you need any assistance, do not be afraid to reach out to immigration agencies such as ours to increase the chances of successful immigration. You could start a new life in this wonderful country sooner than you think.
