Maple Education Inc. was conceived with a simple friendly question over the phone “can you help find a good Canadian school for my child?”. As a relatively new Canadian immigrant in the late 1990s and early 2000s, Ebibomo Obaro received requests from friends in Nigeria to help place their kids in Canadian schools. What started as a favour to friends, soon took up her entire time.This did not bother her in the least because she felt a sense of satisfaction every time she received those admission letters. It was only a matter of time before she turned her hobby into a full time business.
Ebi returned to Nigeria in 2003, to Incorporate Maple Education. By 2004, she became one of the first members of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council (ICCRC) and the Canadian Association of Professional Immigration Consultants (CAPIC).
For the most part of its existence, Maple Education has focused on placing Nigerian students into different schools across Canada.
Maple Education Canada Inc. also began processing temporary resident visas for parents who wished to accompany their children to Canada, and Permanent Residence status for those who wish to make Canada their home. With its headquarters in Fort St John, Canada, and branches in Port Harcourt, Abuja & Lagos , Nigeria, Maple Education Canada Inc. is now the largest provider of Canadian Immigration advice in Nigeria.
