The Canadian Government has informed Nigerians that its immigration office does not accept refugee applications directly from people.
It also noted that only Canadian migration officers can exclusively guarantee approval of immigration applications.
The High Commission, in a tweet, said the notice was important in light of “great interest in Canadian immigration programs” received lately.
It reads in part: “You cannot apply directly for resettlement. You must be referred to Canada by a designated referral organization or a private sponsor.
“No one can guarantee that your immigration application will be fast-tracked or approved. Only a Canadian migration officer can decide if you can come to Canada.
“All the information you need to apply to visit or migrate to Canada is available free on the official Government of Canada website.”
The Canadian Government has already announced it is targeting welcoming 1.2 million immigrants from 2021 to 2023.
