Nigerian Success in Canada

Canada’s most popular pathway for skilled workers who wish to immigrate is called the Express Entry system. This system allows most immigrants to have their applications processed in 4 months or less, making it a great option for those ready to start a new life in Canada!

In 2015, only 609 Nigerians were invited to apply for immigration through the Express Entry system. This number increased massively, to 5,130 Nigerians in 2017, marking an increase of nearly 900% in successful Nigerian applicants! In fact, in 2017, Nigerians were the third most successful citizens in Canadian immigration, outranked only by India and China.

The Express Entry system is for skilled workers. It uses a points-based system to rank all interested immigrants and only invites those with the highest scores to submit applications. The success Nigerians are finding in Express Entry demonstrates that Nigerians have what it takes to establish new lives as skilled workers in Canada!
