    Guys, this is a small gift to all of us. I got the ticket last week, so it's real. If you want to visit parks, this will grant you and your families access to a lot of paid parks in Canada, all for free :) The link is long but is correct, is from the Canadian government...

    Thanks @Smearingo! I've done SIN a few times in the past, never took me more than 30 mins. Perhaps the first one took a little longer, but I don't recall it being. Last time I did it here in Brossard and it was 10 minutes, it was empty. I think there's more than one Services Canada around and...

    Guys, for those of you who did the landing recently: have they the immigration kept your work permits? I'm organizing my documents and realized that I don't have the work permits with me. I think they've kept it - which would make sense - but wanted to check if that's the case.

    Decided to do the landing last night, but got home too late for a reply. All good, we're now officially, landed immigrants :) Took us maybe 20 minutes, just like with @Smearingo. Only question not on the book was: why are you here so late? Bank statement was enough for proof of funds. Nothing...

    That's super lucky... I got there 1 hour before they opened, had to wait the hour until opening hours and then half an hour to do the whole thing.

    But be ready for a long wait :(. RAMQ is usually very busy.

    That's awesome, thank you @cohenbrother. Hi @alemom!! I'm going too, probably early in the morning. A friend who recently did the flagpolling recommended the border at Saint Armand. Apparently it adds ~10 minutes to the trip but is smaller and less busy. This one opens at 8am though, so I guess...

    Got CoPR!! Hey @Smearingo, I have a question. The documents I've received say that my Permanent Residency is valid only until the sticker on the passport, which date says July 2017. Does that mean that we'll have to ask for a renewal after that, or does something change after you do the landing...

    So the official tells you to sign but the instructions say don't sign it?

    @cohenbrother: firstly, congratulations on the PR!! You're officially an immigrant :) Well done in doing it fast too. One question: why "don't sign anything"?

    Same boat here, PPRVSR. I've registered the tracking code of my return envelope at the canadapost site so I'll get an email notification when it is activated. As of timeframe, I would think it depends on case and amount of work they have, since there are 4-5 ppl on the forum who have sent the...

    Where did you guys hear this about proof of money and income? I haven't heard of it.

    I'm not sure, cohenbrother. They mentioned they have to have a way to proof you live in Quebec, but I guess you're not the only person without a rent, so they probably have an alternative for you.

    This part was confusing for them to sort. I've got the first RAMQ card with a post-grad work permit. That was enough for the card to be approved. This year since it was an extension, they I had to be working full time and they asked me for a letter from the employer. Not sure if lease or rent...
