    Bringing a car from the US

    So, if you're already in the US, it isn't a problem. If you're in Canada, it's a pain in the bum. But them's the breaks and I found the Immigration Official eagerly combative at Blaine, so best to follow the instructions to the letter. At Blaine, they ask that you park your car in a truck...

    PR Card didn't arrive

    It's been over 10 weeks since I landed and I still haven't received my PR card. Is there a number that I can call and speak to an actual human about this to see when it was mailed, etc?

    Landing in different province

    I landed in Surrey, BC, but I was headed to Halifax, NS. There was no problem, but they did specifically ask why we were landing in a difference province to the one we planned to live in. (It was because we were driving across Canada and they were cool with that.)

    Nova Scotia Health card

    I agree. Plus, it's super fast if you're willing to go to the office in person. We called ahead and gave them our details so they could get started our application. Then later the same day, we went to the office and had MSI cards in our hands within 30 minutes. (Similarly, getting a SIN was easy...

    Hi likeursula! Sorry for the late response. Both. When I got the VOG I scanned it and sent it via email, then I mailed the original. I think it'd have been fine with just the email, but officially it states that they need the original when it's a police certificate. When submitting your VOG –...

    Clearing customs with power of attorney

    When I move to Canada, I'm shipping my belongings separately via truck and it's possible that my stuff arrives at our destination before I do. Is it possible for someone to clear customs on my behalf with power of attorney? If so, how do I go about it?

    Will this be a problem??

    I think there's a bit of wiggle room. My medical expires in November, yet my COPR expires some time in December.

    Export & import a car on different days

    Is it necessary to export and import a car on the same (from the US to Canada)? For example, I'm driving up to the border the day before I land, as it's a long drive. Could I export on that day and import on the next day when I cross the border?
