About The Nigerian Canadian Association of Montreal
The Nigerian Canadian Association of Montreal was established on the 15th of June 1986. We aim to help Nigerians who arrive in, or are resident in the province of Quebec to better integrate into the society and propagate the cultural riches of Nigeria to Canada's unique cultural system. The N.C.A also harnesses the collective efforts and goodwill of Nigerians in the province of Quebec, through the exchange of ideas, while exploring the available resources including employment opportunities in the society for the benefit of the Association and it's members. We also assist in immigration and settlement counseling services for newly arrived Nigerians in the province of Quebec.
We advocate on behalf of our members and others who turn to us, so that they may obtain the most pertinent help for their needs. The NCA has the mandate of advancing the welfare of Nigerians in Quebec. We also provide relevant information on business, tourism, humanitarian, entertainment, etc to Canadians who are interested in knowing more about Nigeria which is abundantly endowed with natural and human resources. Nigeria provides the gateway to other African markets, especially those within the West Africa sub-region. These alongside Government’s sustained efforts to create a robust business environment, make Nigeria a preferred investment and tourism destination in Africa.
