    sponsor parents to Canada 2019

    My husband and I just became PRs last year and this will be our first time doing taxes in Canada. Can we use our previous taxes from the US in the proof of funds (as part of the past 3 years’ taxes) to sponsor his parents to come to Canada? Or does it have to be Canadian Taxes?

    PPR visa exempt

    You send a copy of your passport, and send your spouses actual passport. That’s what we did, as my son and I were visa exempt and my husband was not.

    Ray of Hope - 92nd Draw

    I think a low draw will come next... I remember last year they had a special draw like this one, then a few days later an unexpected draw with the lowest CRS (which was luckily the first one I was in an qualified for). Good luck!

    My family and I landed March 24. My PR card was approved May 10th and received in mail shortly after. Got a request for new photos for my son about a week after that. My spouse’s application showed updated on May 25th before going back to Submitted and changing back to updated today. When I...

    I haven’t since the dependent applicants haven’t even moved from submitted. But maybe I’ll still call just to see.

    Track your PR card timeline and processing times here

    Landed March 24, primary applicant updated to approved on May 10, received PR card today in mail.... worried about the two dependents on the application. Still just says “submitted.” Is this normal?

    Track your PR card timeline and processing times here

    Is it normal for the primary applicant to have their PR card approved first? We landed March 24th, and mine was approved yesterday but my husband and son still says submitted... we haven’t received any emails for anything.

    Landing experience at Lewiston–Queenston Bridge, some other tips

    Maybe try calling border services to see if it’ll be ok if you’re there that late? From what I’ve heard you will be.

    Landing experience at Lewiston–Queenston Bridge, some other tips

    We got there around 10am. They aren’t used to US residents doing landing there so they were asking if I stopped at the US border first but then saw my passport and figured it out. There was no one there when we got there so like 5 different officers helped get all the paperwork done. It took...

    Landing experience at Lewiston–Queenston Bridge, some other tips

    I’ve seen things that the buffalo borders can be strict on what times you can do landing... I’m afraid to get there and get turned away. :( We’re using UPack to ship our stuff. It’s actually only costing us $1200 which isn’t that bad. My husband doesn’t have his license and we can’t fit us, a...

    Landing experience at Lewiston–Queenston Bridge, some other tips

    When are you planning on landing? We’re driving up from Boston this weekend and while it’s shorter to go through NY, I’m worried if we get to the bridge too late we won’t be able to land... right now we’re planning to go to Derby/Stansted in Vermont. But it turns a 7.5 hour drive into a 12 hour...

    Exporting/Importing Vehicle - US to Canada ONLY!

    We’re only going to have the bare minimum with us, so that’s good! Thanks for the input. :) Looks like we’ll be able to export/import day of after doing landing formalities. That makes me feel better!

    Exporting/Importing Vehicle - US to Canada ONLY!

    I want to split it because of my spouse’s current status in the US. I would rather have our PR signed and have been in Canada and, if they check passports on US customs during export, have him be rejected entry than get checked before Canada landing and be arrested. I would stick to my word to...

    Exporting/Importing Vehicle - US to Canada ONLY!

    A few scenario questions, if anyone knows... Can I export the car a day or so before importing? Can I do my landing, then go back to US customs to export then go back to Canada customs to import? Can I do the export/import process a bit after landing (like within a week) and if so, what...

    US-based applicants, let's connect here

    Does anyone know if I can drive to the US customs at the border and export my car a day or so before landing at Canadian border? Will it have to be the same border I’ll be landing at?

    Steps to export the vehicle from USA to Canada...

    My family plans to drive to Canada beginning of April from US to do our landing and move. Due to personal reasons, we don’t want to stop at US border/customs before doing our landing. If we put our car on the goods to follow list and do the export/import after landing, is that okay? Will we have...
