    Gettin New SIN Number

    We did our bank registration on day one after the 14 days quarantine ended and we used one of the numerous paper work they provided us that included our name and address and Bank name as a proof of address for the SIN application. It took us between 15 and 20 days for us to receive the SIN...

    Applying for SIN online after landing

    Hi guys, I am a bit confused the instructions say that we need 2 different proof of ID (1 primary and 1 secondary) + 1 proof of address. However, in our case (individuals that landed with a COPR letter and are waiting to receive their PR card); the valid primary proof of ID would be "both" the...

We hope we did...

    COPR and coronavirus

    Hey - just to confirm I managed to do my connection flight to Ottawa from Toronto. I ended up flying on 27th April because my 28th April flight was cancelled (last minute on 24th April) I flew with Air Canada from London Heathrow to Toronto. I did not have a connection flight at the time. Once...

    COPR and coronavirus

    I don't know if they are still opened since this all COVID 19 situation but I believe that UPS can allow you rent a proper home address. This can become handy especially until you get a permanent accommodation. You can receive your mails over there and give that proper "home address" when you do...

    COPR and coronavirus

    I don't know if this would work but initially my plan is to do online grocery shopping ...perhaps with Metro or another major supermaket brand. Maybe ordering takeaway meals until the grocery order is delivered. Again I don't know if this would work but this is what I have in mind so far.

    COPR and coronavirus

    Me again - Do you you think they will let me board a second plane for Ottawa or they will ask me to do the isolation in Toronto. I will be heading to Ottawa but I will have a short transit (1 h) in Toronto.
