    Exchange of US DL to get Ontario DL

    Is your driving experience/extract just the MVR? I ordered a certified MVR off the DMV website to be delivered to my home address, I'm hoping that will be enough to prove my driving experience/license authenticity. I'm coming from Georgia as well.

    Exchanging U.S. (Georgia) to Ontario license

    Hello friends, I have some questions about exchanging my U.S. (Georgia) license to an Ontario one. I've had my license since August of 2015 (so four and a half years), and just ordered a certified MVR (7-year history, since I've had my license longer than the 3-year option) from the DMV. Will...

    Parents helping me move

    I hope my title is grammatically correct. Anyways, I got my PR and soft landed on December 26th and am making the big move around March 30th. Me and my husband are going to drive my car (don't worry, I am aware of the exporting/importing stuff and am working on getting that done) with some of...

    Soft landing experience-YYZ December 2019

    Hey friends, I know threads about soft landing experiences are greatly appreciated by members on here so I'll let y'all know about mine. I'm a U.S. citizen being sponsored by my Canadian citizen spouse for some background on my case. I was coming in from Atlanta (where I'm from) to YYZ on Delta...

    My landing experience (soft landing) - November 2019

    ALSO, I forgot to ask this last night.... How did you fill out the BSF186A form, the link to the PDF on their official website won't let me type on it and I have to pay for an Adobe membership to get access to type on the document :/ The shorter form lets me type on it though... is that what you...

    My landing experience (soft landing) - November 2019

    Super helpful! I'm about to go through this process this Thursday so I have some questions! When you did the automated kiosks, what did you say the purpose of your visit was? To immigrate or visit (since it was a soft landing)? Also, you had a goods accompanying list? Since I'm just visiting...

    Soft landing questions for U.S. citizen/family class

    Hi, I actually have more questions about landing and since you're a VIP member I figured you may have answers? 1. First question, since I'm doing a "soft" landing, I arrive at terminal 3 at Toronto Pearson and those kiosks are all on computer now, and one of the first questions asks your purpose...

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    I'm not a senior member or anything so I'm purely basing my suggestion based on others' experiences I've read about on this forum. BUT, I do see people say that there's no point in ordering your notes until medicals have been passed because I think that's when they truly start looking into your...

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    Hey friend. Most people I see in your situation are advised to order GCMS notes. They give you a detailed look as to the notes they are making on your file and maybe why there are delays. It allows you to be proactive too if there is something they are concerned with in your file. Here's a link...

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    GC Key shows approved! Took exactly two weeks from when my passport photocopy and all the other PPR stuff got to Ottawa, in case anyone is curious about how long it is currently taking. My return tracker hasn't been activated yet but I imagine it will be either today or tomorrow.

    Soft landing questions for U.S. citizen/family class

    Hey friends I'm a U.S. citizen who is planning to do a soft landing at Toronto Pearson at the end of December. I have some questions, and I realize these may be painfully stupid questions: 1. I know I need to declare goods I'm bringing and goods to follow. Do I need to declare every single...

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    I sent in my PPR stuff last Wednesday and it got there on Thursday (Thanksgiving day) so I'm still waiting for CoPR. I plan on doing a soft landing at the end of this month (day after Christmas) and then moving around the spring/summer time. This process is stressful y'all, especially when you...

    PPR -dual citizen passport question

    Hey y'all I just received PPR today, and I'm a dual U.S. and German citizen. Do I send a photocopy of both my U.S. and German passports? I've never lived in Germany, I'm a citizen by having a German parent, but I don't know if they simply want the photo copy of the passport from the country you...

    Spousal sponsorship

    Is your ECAS thing saying "in process" or "decision made"? This Thursday they said they had just started processing it after a GC Key ghost update, and then I got decision made on Friday. I'm a July outland applicant coming from the States. If your ECAS still says "in process" then I'm not sure...

    Spousal sponsorship

    Do Americans typically receive a pre-arrival services letter? From the U.S. people on here I've never seen one mention getting that letter but I could be wrong. I got "decision made" on ECAS yesterday after a ghost update on Thursday, and this came after no PFL or interview requests so I'm...

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    Actually not only did I get "decision made" but my order for GCMS notes was just sent to IRCC today too so whoops. Oh well, I guess it will still be interesting to look at.

    JULY 2019 *OUTLAND* SPOUSAL SPONSORSHIP

    I got a ghost update last night and then saw "decision made" today! I know that that generally means PPR in a few days? It's Friday so I guess I have to wait until Monday.
