I'm Mohamed Sakr from Egypt. I recently got my Immigration Visa to Canada, I have to land in Winnipeg before the 5th of May, which to be honest is not good for me! I'm have no intentions in moving to Canada right now, so what I want to do is take a vacation from work (I can only take 2 weeks), land in Canada, apply for the PR card, have it mailed to a friend, then leave back to Egypt. I would then as my friend to mail me the Card to Egypt once he receives it.
Ok so time for the questions!!
1- Do I have to land in Winnipeg? The problem with Winnipeg is that I know nobody there. I have friends in Toronto and Montreal but not Winnipeg.
2- If I have to land in Winnipeg, which is fine with me, can I have the card mailed to my friend's address in Toronto? Or does it have to be an address in Winnipeg??
If I have to mail the PR card to an address in Winnipeg, I'm pretty much screwed!
Since I can't stay for more than 2 weeks and I know that it takes 4 to 6 weeks for the PR card to be issued.
Really appreciate your help guys
