In a recent interview, Sakib Mohammed, the face behind the popular YouTube channel and a Facebook page titled “Sakib Canada,” sheds light on the dreams and aspirations that people from around the world harbour about Canada. As an enthusiastic guide, Sakib aims to provide valuable insights into life in Canada, offering guidance on education, lifestyle, and the intricate immigration process.

Sakib begins by acknowledging the global fascination with Canada, where people aspire to live and study. Through his online platforms, he endeavours to demystify the Canadian experience, recognizing that while education is renowned, the lifestyle can be expensive. Undeterred by the challenges, Sakib is driven by a passion to guide individuals, especially those from Bangladesh and India, who share a common language—Bengali.

“Creation is sometimes hard because editing takes a lot of time,” Sakib admits, highlighting the effort invested in curating content that resonates with his audience. The challenges of editing are not lost on him, emphasizing the time-consuming and demanding nature of this aspect of content creation. However, Sakib clarifies that he is not a licensed immigration consultant. 

Despite his limitations, he strives to provide valuable information within his capacity, directing viewers to official government websites for accurate and reliable guidance. He underscores the importance of dispelling fraudulent practices that mislead individuals into thinking they can purchase a visa with money alone.

Addressing the need for change in the lives of those aspiring to move to Canada, Sakib emphasizes the diverse routines and celebrations that differentiate Canadian life from that in Bangladesh and India. He encourages a realistic understanding of the immigration process, stressing that success requires education, financial preparedness, and innovative ideas.

Sakib reflects on his journey, sharing his experience with the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) exam—a prerequisite for many immigration applications. He acknowledges the challenges of understanding English, particularly when faced with different accents. However, he sees living in Canada as a tremendous benefit, providing the opportunity to learn from diverse cultures and people.

Sakib also touches on the linguistic challenges he faced, emphasizing the nuances of different English accents. He recognizes the difficulty posed by accents from countries such as Nigeria, Africa, and China. Still, he underscores the immense learning potential that comes with living in a culturally rich and diverse country like Canada.

Sakib Mohammed’s interview is a candid and insightful exploration of the dreams, struggles, and triumphs associated with pursuing a life in Canada. Through his online presence, Sakib continues to be a beacon of guidance for those navigating the complexities of Canadian immigration and integration, fostering a sense of community and shared understanding among his global audience.
