I told about my extension to the VISA officer too, but he said I have no choice, and said my extension would be in trouble if he did not give me a new...

    SIN

    I applied for Canadian PR in the past and during landing (year 2014) I also applied and obtained a SIN number; then I came out of Canada but did not return in time to maintain my PR status.

    Fumigation

Someone told me it was an old rule and now fumigation not needed but then someone-else said it is still there.

    About Schools in Greater Vancouver area

    Thank you for your response. So is Fraser Institute (https://www.fraserinstitute.org/school-performance) the widely accepted site to view school rankings in Canada?

    About Schools in Greater Vancouver area
