    I am looking for fully furnished accomodation for Mar 1 in toronto

    What kind of accommodation you would be interested into? It's highly unlikely that you will get a fully furnished apartment in Toronto city within your budget. I have a furnished basement in my house and can help you with your accommodation. I'm in GTA (Greater Toronto Area) and not inside the...

    looking for housing in Toronto

    Not sure how to answer your original question because when I rented, I already had a job in hand. But just in case apartment rental doesn't work for you for some reason or you start thinking about renting a basement, let me know. I'm a home owner in GTA and have a finished and furnished basement...

    GTA is huge and comprises of many towns and cities. You should be able to find high rises in Mississauga as well... especially around square one in Mississauga. Price for a 2 bedroom apartment could be around $1500. It could be more or less depending upon the location, facilities, and whether or...

    Pakistani Applicants waiting for PPR (Stage 1 or 2 letters) from CHC London

    It's because I was eligible under both these NOC's when I applied. NOC 4131 because I was into IT training and later on into IT management which falls under NOC 0213. Are you in GTA?

    Pakistani Applicants waiting for PPR (Stage 1 or 2 letters) from CHC London

    Dear canvis2006, I appreciate your thoughts. In my opinion, there could be pros and cons with both. If renting a basement has problems, then renting the apartments is also not always problem free. Having a noisy next door neighbor playing loud music, having a big family renting the apartment...

    New immigrants - where to stay in Ontario

    You could have noisy neighbors in an apartment building and feel the same things. I used to have front door neighbors who were always playing loud music. The family who were renting the apartment above our apartment had kids running and jumping. So this all depends. Noise from furnace etc. could...

    New immigrants - where to stay in Ontario

    What is the size of your family? How old are your children? If you really think your family size is too big to be accommodated in a basement, then apartment and house rentals are always available. Basements are usually in a more residential and quiet neighborhoods. Apartment buildings have...

    Not a problem buddy. However, you should still look into the possibility of renting out a basement. I'm sure you'll be able to find one with a good size if your family is big. Many landlords won't have an issue with long term lease. Good luck, and let me know if I can be of any help.

    New immigrants - where to stay in Ontario

    Dear Hasni, I'm an old member of this forum. I stumbled across your post today. Based on what I have seen, newcomers usually prefer to live in the hotels in the beginning. This is an expensive option and if you are with family, you most of the times don't have the facility to cook in the hotel...

    Direct flight or connected Flights

    PIA has a direct flight from KHI (Karachi) to YYZ (Toronto). Many people from Pakistan, especially those with young children, prefer this direct flight just to avoid stop-overs.

    South African Police Clearance

    You're welcome. South African police clearances involve a good amount of processing time, so whatever you do and whichever company you chose, I would suggest you to act fast. Don't stress, you'll be fine. I've been there and done that successfully :). Bye.

    South African Police Clearance

    And yes, another thing. When they (DKP Investigations... or any other company that you plan to use) submit your police clearance application to the Criminal Record Center in Pretoria, ask them to provide you with a receipt proving that your application has been submitted. In case your police...
