There has been the news all over our community of the Employers wages subsidy, some quarters have received the news with skepticism while the smart ones has keyed into and already started benefiting.

In this article Xphrame media blog brings the details with the intention to clarify the simple process.

For readers who are not employers you are advised at this point to just share with your network who are active employers and seeking to recruit employees, this is because it gets juicy and tempting from this point.

Come to think of it, we all agree Canada is a working system with positive governance goals and we are gradually getting into the post covid era, congratulations we are all alive as survivors, the pandemic has gone with a lot of our loved ones.

Straight to business, the wage subsidy program is designed to help employers facing difficulty in recruiting a well trained and passionate workforce. The LDATD is a not-for-profit organization funded to actualize this subsidy program.

The subsidy program will help you get well trained and certified employees, and they will be formally recruited into your business to work for you. The employees are paid by the organization for the first 3 months via your formal pay system, which literally means you are saving on wages for 3 months.

It gets more interesting to find out that there is a whooping free $1500 you are entitled to when you attend just one edition of the employer’s workshop. This will help you further with your business needs.

The icing is that you are not mandated to keep the employees if after the 3 months you realize that you are unable to keep up with the payment. I will stop here and trust the smart ones to key into this opportunity.

Before I round off, your business must be registered and have a payroll system.

To benefit from this simply call 647-868-1357 to benefit from this subsidy.

Power of Inclusion: What is the Fuss About!


Council of Nigerian Professionals Inc. (CNP)

Presents: The Maiden Edition of Power of Inclusion: What is the fuss about!

A Three (3) day event, starting on Thursday - Saturday, December 2nd-4th, 2021


‘Inclusion is not a matter of political correctness. It is the key to growth.”- Jesse Jackson


There has been a lot of discussion around inclusion, yet here we are.

After the August 28,1963 speech of Martin Luther King Jr. during the match in Washington for jobs and freedom… I have a dream...who would have thought that we’ll still be here?


It took double tragic incidents in 2020 to bring the need for inclusivity to the forefront again. Covid-19 gave the world a reset button, and the death of George Floyd on May 25th, 2020, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA, may his soul Rest in Peace, brought inclusion back to the forefront.


This is a discussion that affects the world and humanity. It is a call for you, for me, for everyone, that knows that Systemic Anti-Black Racism, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, homophobia and more destroys; and wants to see a new dawn of change.


Outstanding and Distinguished Keynote Speaker panelists will be available to share their view on each day

BY CANADA EVENT RATINGS: opinions expressed by the authors are explicitly their own views.

For first time readers, Canada events rating is a team of event reviewers who say it the way it about organized events and shows organized in Canada in the Nigerian community.


As the city returns and begin to ease off restrictions gradually. Events are beginning to return. The big questions is will those old star players in community events return to the spotlight?

Truth be told a lot of them will never again get patronage and general recognition like they enjoyed during the pre covid era. Reason is that they seem to be great increase in Nigerian community in the Toronto, these set of Nigerians are fun loving youths with great energy for fun, talented, daring and forming their own circles. Another reason is the massive pathway for health workers immigration scheme which has doled out permanent status to a lot of Nigerians building up the exciting for fun before the winter returns.

We have had the Caribana show, Nigeria vs Ghana show and Club on the boat and album launches and big birthday parties in halls. Turn out for events has been massive.

Needless to say, Nigerians love fun, we have been bored by the covid, they are new cloths to slay and guys also need to mingle.


Canada events ratings knew Jimi Alasela to be the host of all white boat party before the covid. Hunter Tv was known for collaborations and Felebration event outside been a film producer. Things are changing obviously, post covid looks like a new level playing ground for all event organizers. Recently event promoters are also uniting to work as a team, will that fly for a long time? We really can’t say.

Jimi Alasela last minute cancellation of MC Morriss event “Laugh at last” in his restaurant also looks like a beginning of a post covid entertainment haux.

Jimi Alasela’s all white party will be coming up in weeks, Will he get audience like he used to do?

A lot of new talent in the community springing up so fast, some are so lost and faking it to look real, some are lost to social media mirage.

The audience demographic has fast changed in such away we can’t predict old events will repeat yard stone achievements record of impact.

As for Hunter’s Boat party, well they were lots of complain about the untidy Boat 2 which spent less than 2 hours on the sea. DJ orlah however compensated with great grove music.

Reports from boat 1 was pretty impressive and with dinner served, one would rate the event a 80%.
