Thanks for the prompt reply, appreciate it. Unfortunately I am not visa exempt. Therefore will have no choice but to apply for a PR travel document from NY visa office. Any idea regarding processing times in NY?
Many thanks for all the advice.
Here is the link for the Form. It usually takes 2-8 days. As soon as you you have a travel date and a fare ticket, go to the Canadian Consulate.http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/pdf/kits/forms/IMM5524E.PDF
