Greetings to all readers.

Im a ugandan lady and would like to visit my friend in Canada. We haven't met before and have been chatting on Facebook for 4years now and know each other pretty well.
Is it possible to have the visa? What do I need to do? I have enough money to support the trip.

Visiting a friend in Canada doesn't show any strong application, chances of refusal is high... VOs doesn't grant visa that way my dear, find a better reason, than this

You can go to Canada to visit a friend, but you would need to write a good SOP stating what you were going to do, like sightseeing etc. people go and visit friends all the time, so it definitely is possible.

Well is better than not trying, in such case, you can apply for a tourist, and Include in your application, what you will be doing, there you can include your friends name, and his address and telephone, plus strong statements that shows your strong ties to your home country... @Bryanna please suggest something for her..

The OP needs to post more information.

@Olivia.2000
1. How long do you want to visit?

2. Have you traveled to other visa-required countries (US, UK, EU, Australia, NZ) for short visits?

3. What strong ties can you prove: Employment, property/land ownership, dependent family members, good financial situation, etc?

4. What compelling reasons can you prove to return to Uganda by a specific date after your Canada visit?

Wish to visit for a 2weeks. I'm employed and compfatable! Why wouldn't I wish to leave Canada! It's never my dream..it's not what I expected actually, why would the embasay need my land titles? It sounds like visiting Canada is a crime that might need a lawyer . Sorry if I sound arrogant but I'm so amazed.

What do you mean by my family members well being? Do I need to provide my siblings information too? I have 2brothers ,both citizens of Sweden. What do I need to provide about them dear?

Thanks for the help

That's what you are supposed to provide Olivia, if you want to visit that friend of yours, every country has its own governing laws, thus your opinion isn't needed tho.. So stick to what the expect @Bryanna just stated for you.. Thanks..

The more documents you give them proving you have a good stable life and are stable financially, the better it looks for the CIC officer. They are only looking for reasons you may want to stay. To them, all these documents provide proof that you will not stay after your visa expires. Unfortunately, there are a LOT of people that would do that (not saying you would). This happens all over the world, so the government are just trying to protect themselves. Provide as much as you can as proof and you will be fine.

Yeah, wasn't easy for me tho.. .. The background checks message reads we are processing your application, we will send you a message when we start background check.. @Bryanna does that mean my application is going to take long?? Because is been 2 months since I applied..

If there are no background checks then you could get a decision soon. Hope you've sent a web form to request for an early decision
