Nigerians emigrating to Canada increase 300%

For the fifth year in a row, more Nigerians emigrated to Canada than the year before as data published by the Canadian government shows the number of Nigerians issued permanent resident permits has tripled since 2015.

According to a report by Quartz Africa, the Nigerian emigration growth rate outstrips some of Canada’s biggest sources of immigrants over the last five years, including India, China and Philippines.

The rise in Nigerian immigrants heading to Canada reflects the North American country’s push to expand its labour force and lower the average age of its workers as its population advances in years.

For middle-class Nigerians increasingly looking to emigrate, Canada holds appeal for several reasons.

One of the reasons is the chance for their children to access better education standards —and the future opportunities that come with it.

Quartz Africa reported that it’s unlikely that immigration levels from Nigeria to Canada will drop anytime soon.
