    Land Border Crossing COVID 19

    I agree that compared to a moving company, u-box is really expensive. Like for $500 more you might as well have someone else do the heavy lifting. Movers was good for us because we're a family of 4 and have a ton of stairs and I don't want my husband to break lol

    Housing options in covid

    Depending on your comfort level, you can always do a FaceTime walkthrough of a rental. We did this on a few different places and decided on one, and are moving right into a new place when we arrive on the 15th. Also if you work with a realtor they will generally go and look at the place for you...

    Clearing personal items from customs during COVID?

    Hi, I don't know if you've already gone through the process or not, but I spoke with someone at CBSA over the phone because we're about to go through something similar. She said we can give Power of Attorney to a family member and they can clear on our behalf. So we're going to get a letter...

    My Experience during Soft Landing in Canada at the time of COVID-19 in June 2020 from USA

    Congrats! I had a couple questions.. did they call or check on you during your 14 day quarantine? Also, when you officially move there, are you driving a UHaul or hiring movers? I didn't consider bringing groceries with me across the border when we move back from the USA, but that's actually...

    Hi everyone, We are moving back to Toronto in a few weeks, driving from New York. We are all Canadian citizens. I have my quarantine plan in place, so no worries there. We've already been inside since March here in NY so what's another two weeks anyway? I am wondering about something else...

    October 2013 Citizenship Applications

    haha, yes that's right... unless I'm from the future ;) I'll update my timeline now! Yeah I guess we could call. I didn't think they'd answer questions so soon. I mean, we've only been "in process" for just under 3 months now. The app is for my husband, so he'll probably have to make the...

    Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been asked already, or maybe there hasn't been a confirmed answer yet... Anyway, I'm trying to figure out what our local office is. On the CIC website it says whichever office is closest to your home, but I'm right in the middle of St. Clair and Scarborough...

    sponsoring mexican husband

    Hello, The website posts a very long processing time for Mexico, and I think in some cases, it can be that long. Our app was sent to Buffalo first, by mistake, but once Mexico had our file, it took 4 months to be approved. We filed as common law, living in the States, filing through Mexico...

    Hi Canda, When we did our app, I put my personal address for both and when we moved, I just updated that online. If I were you, put whichever address is more likely for the mail to get checked regularly. The same goes for your phone number. Give them the number that you use the most. They...
