Our information session starts now! You can also follow #ImmigrationCorner to keep up with the conversation.
We are starting today's info session by bringing good news to study permit applicants from #Ghana and #Nigeria. The processing time is now 7 and 6 weeks respectively.
Canada is fast becoming the choice destination for many immigrants to study, visit or live permanently. There are more than 60 immigration programs for foreign nationals interested in coming to Canada.
The decision to immigrate (move permanently) to another country is one that comes with some financial responsibilities. This may range from obtaining an international passport, paying relevant fees, and even the funds needed to settle down upon arrival. #ImmigrationCorner
The Canadian Government understands this & is making conscious efforts to keep official fees directly payable to Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) as affordable as possible. There are, however, third-party fees also payable to other agencies #ImmigrationCorner
We want to start today's FREE information session by appreciating all those who have joined us every Friday, supported us by spreading words about what we do, and sent us words of encouragement. We appreciate your time and goodwill & hope to serve you more! #ImmigrationCorner
