    Transferring money from UAE to Canada

    TD stands for Toronto Dominion. Maybe you find it there. I don't recall exact details, sorry.

    Version 2019 - Guide to Police Clearance Certificate from the UAE

    Attach a copy of your old passport's bio page. They just need to know that the PCC is yours.

    Can study any major as PR in Canada ?

    I think it comes down to whether a job is regulated or not. You can't negotiate your way into being a surgeon, but you can certainly get software engineering jobs if you haven't studied computer science before.

    Colour Photocopies of Passports

    I’m not sure about student visas, but for PR applications, you were only asked to submit the passport’s bio page(s). Since they’re asking for all pages in the citizenship application, it would make sense to translate foreign text that doesn’t have an English translation next to it.

    Colour Photocopies of Passports

    Seems excessive, especially if you need to translate non-english pages/stamps.

    Correct Digital Photo Size???

    how can I know the pixels of a PDF File? I have Adobe Acrobat Reader DC. Need Help. I need my PDF's files to be at least 420 x 540 pixels. I am using the same files I used for the MPNP but need to make sure they have the minimum pixels required from IRCC. Try using a .jpg file instead. You can...

    PCC in the past 4 years or since age of 18?

    The situations are a bit different as my friend is not from Qatar. You do not need to provide a PCC because in the application, it says: Note: If you were in your country or territory of origin immediately prior to becoming a permanent resident and landing in Canada and this time falls within...

    Express entry vs. OINP

    If you have enough CRS points to get an invitation to apply after 6 months, I'm not sure why you would bother with the OINP process and fees, other than the fact that you're being impatient. :) It can be tricky if you ever want to leave Ontario and move to a different province while being a PR...

    Tax filing requirement in the year I did short landing

    I think I earned something like $15 of interest in my Canadian bank account in 2017 (my only Canadian source of income at that time), so I still wouldn't owe any taxes because it's under the basic personal amount. I found this link and none of the cases mentioned applied to me in the couple of...

    Any way to retrieve PR application submitted form information?

    I logged into MyCIC to see if I can retrieve my personal and address history to keep things consistent with my citizenship application, but I can only see a list of submitted documents. I was able to see the Express Entry forms (Personal Details, Work History, etc.), but not the e-APR. Any...

    Tax filing requirement in the year I did short landing

    Hello, I'm filling my citizenship application which I'll be submitting after I file my 2020 taxes. I also filed my 2019's and 2018's taxes. So that's a total of 3 years. My question is about the year 2017 in which I did a short landing and received the PR status. I never filed taxes for that...

    Canadian life after moving from UAE/Middle East

    This is incorrect. You can carry any amount you want, but if it's more than $10,000 CAD, you must declare it to CBSA.

    Auto Insurance

    I personally recommend Desjardins. While I can't speak of the reliability of their claims, they are the cheapest when I shop around every year. You will get a discount after receiving your G license. You can also use their Adjusto app which can give you up to 25% off (I tried it and it works)...

    UAE Driving license acceptance in Canada April 2018

    RTA is part of Dubai government. If your license is from Sharjah, it probably won't show up on RTA's website.

    UAE Driving license acceptance in Canada April 2018

    I'm not too sure, but if you're still in Dubai, better get it. I didn't know about the possibility of stamping the paper, back when I was in Dubai.

    UAE Driving license acceptance in Canada April 2018

    You need a physical paper to be considered in Ontario. The e-certificate won't cut it.
