In 2019, Nigeria ranked as the fourth (4th) source country of new immigrants to Canada, behind India, China and the Phillippines.

Canada is one of the most immigration-friendly nations in the world and has been rated as one of the best countries to live in by the United Nations.

Canada do not set strict limit on the number of people who can apply for a visa. This is due to the urgent need to refuel their ageing population and workforce.

More Nigerians are also studying in Canada. There are currently around 13,000 Nigerian students and even more in the work force in Canada, and these individuals will be well-placed to transition to permanent resident status due to their youth, English language fluency, Canadian education, and work experience.

In several parts of Nigeria, you can spot agencies advertising immigration to Canada, work and study visas etc. It is quite unfortunate that some-ever-so-desperate-to-migrate individuals even fall for scams. You hear stories everyday about how people sell their properties, borrow loan to pay to relocate to Canada, but end up losing it all.

It is worthy to stress the importance of using legit and highly experienced agencies like Marquis Concierge in the bid to immigrate.
