Emeka is a businessperson from Nigeria who came to Canada on
the Entrepreneur Visa Program to look for
new business opportunities in Canada.
In his native Nigeria, Emeka worked in the gambling sector,
where he had franchises in multiple locations. He had remarkable
success in the gambling business in Nigeria, but in 2021 he and his
wife decided that it was time for a change and that they might find
a better opportunity abroad. While doing their research, they
discovered that Canada is a stable country, and with the aging
population, there is a need for more workforce. He saw this as a
fantastic opportunity to come to Canada to run his business and
serve the Canadian public.
Once he and his wife had made the decision to move, they found
someone online who had a mechanic workshop for sale in Canada, and
they started the process of buying the business. They had all the
documentation and agreements signed to buy the business. Emeka and
his family had a couple of months to travel to Canada and pay the
money required to buy the business. Unfortunately, whilst waiting
for approval from the IRCC (Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship
Canada), delayed due to the pandemic, the deal fell through. Emeka
had to start from scratch, and now he is running a very successful
staffing agency in Canada.
The content of this article is intended to provide a general
guide to the subject matter. Specialist advice should be sought
about your specific circumstances.
Watch Emeka’s full story in this interview with Rakhmad
Sobirov to hear of the challenges that he overcame through hard
work and perseverance to get him where he is today.
