    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    So, to clarify... I currently live in the US (moving to Toronto in December) which makes applying for a Canadian passport challenging (because of the guarantor factor). I will be traveling between Mexico and Canada shortly after moving-- can I do this on an American passport? I can bring my...

    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    It's not an issue-- just seeking clarification. When traveling with my husband and son (who have different citizenship status than I do) I didn't know if it would be simpler if we all traveled with passports from the same country. I also didn't know if there were issues with holding/actively...

    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    Is this accurate, though if I fly say, between Canada and Mexico that I can't do it with a US passport if I am a dual citizen living in Canada?

    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    Thanks, that link was helpful, though it does seem to indicate that there is an exception for American-Canadian dual citizens indicating that it is not required to hold a Canadian passport. Is there a reason your husband travels with both?

    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    Got it, the comment below (and others I had read) gave me the impression that has Canadian PR's they could/should get passports, but I didn't think that was possible. And for myself, is there any reason that I need to give up or switch to a Canadian passport instead if I hold dual citizenship? I...

    Keeping US Passport or change to Canadian?

    Hello, My husband and sons have just received their PR cards. They are US citizens and I am dual US/Canada. We all only have US passports. Now that we will be living in Canada do we need to obtain/travel with Canadian passports or can we continue to use our US? Thanks!

    OHIP Questions (including a weird one)

    Hi My husband and son (both PR) and I (citizen) will be landing in Canada next week, staying with family, possibly coming back to the States for a week or so and then moving into our new home when our lease begins October 1. These are my questions about OHIP: 1) To confirm, once the three...

    Moving question: Uhaul or Company (and goods to follow confusion). HELP!

    Perfect. That’s what we are planning to do. If you’ve already taken care of landing, will they do a search of our car when we go to settle? I’m just envisioning having to figure out how to re-pack everything into a trunk if they’re going to remove all of our boxes and bags. Or did they just...

    Moving question: Uhaul or Company (and goods to follow confusion). HELP!

    Got it. So if we've already done a soft landing-- who/when do a provide a list to when we finally move as settlers? Is it just something we hand to border agent as we are driving in?

    Moving question: Uhaul or Company (and goods to follow confusion). HELP!

    Hi, I will be landing in Toronto in a few weeks. It is a soft land with a permanent move to follow about a month later. Two questions: 1) Should we provide a list of goods to follow when we soft land in September? Or should we provide it when we move permanently? Is there a benefit/requirement...

    Quick trip to Canada without landing? Help!!

    This is sort of a weird scenario. My husband and son have received their COPR. We have a trip planned for early September to take care of a soft landing before moving to Toronto in October (we are currently living in New York). My husband just found out he has to be in Toronto for work in...

    Applied to Ontario (Toronto), can we soft land in Quebec first?

    This would be terrific news! Are you sure? There seems to be a lot on this board about not being able to land in Quebec if it wasn’t where you applied— but it’s all a bit murky (or maybe my understanding is).

    PR landing from USA to Montreal on flight

    Hi. How recently did you land in St Armand? We applied through Ontario but would like to land in St Armand but have read mixed about having issues if we didn't apply to Quebec

    Applied to Ontario (Toronto), can we soft land in Quebec first?

    Hi- I am a Canadian citizen (living in US) and have sponsored by son/husband for Canadian PR. At this point all we have to do is land. Our intention is to ultimately live in Toronto, but we will be visiting family in northern Vermont soon and would love to simply cross the border at that point...
