    This a great post, well done. I know its been more than 60 days for last post, but its worth commenting just to say thank you, and more importantly, to raise awareness so it can help people. CAVEAT, I have no kids, or a wife, so my opinion below is purely my opinion and guesswork. I moved to...

    Discounted Plane tickets for new immigrants first time flying into Canada

    I know this is an old topic, but it appears in google none the less. I found this site, but I do not know how legit it is, use at own risk: http://www.iom.int/concession-fares They seem to give big discounts for immigrants. Discounted fares, extra baggage etc. As a side note, when I...

    Bringing in funds and tax-free vs taxed

    I don't want to move it all out of the UK until the UK Pound is stronger. Right now it's quite weak due to all the Brexit stuff. Value has dropped by 10%. At this rate, its better to take out a Canadian Loan / Personal Line of Credit, and use that until my salary comes in. If I can get a rate at...

    Bringing in funds and tax-free vs taxed

    ok thanks. And when they come asking about the source, I presume they will then also ask about the interest that that money/source may have been earning abroad. So from the day of PR, I'll have to keep track of this for all savings accounts, loans, shares, dividends etc correct? OR, just move...

    Bringing in funds and tax-free vs taxed

    Ah perfect! Thanks pfse, for that super super fast reply. So just "income" on the savings will be taxed. Good. With Brexit, I dont exactly want to convert my pounds into anything else right now, as the value has gone down. As for your note about declaring it, I only know about the goods...

    Bringing in funds and tax-free vs taxed

    Hi all, Just attended the CIIP session, and Im CONFUSED. People in the session (Attendees) were saying that money you take with you when you land in Canada you can bring tax free, but then anything after that is liable for tax. Is that correct?? This in one way makes sense, as its "income"...

    AOR JAN 2016 - let's get together

    In the supposed COPR letter shown in MyCIC, my name is listed twice in the table, once for IMM5785 and then underneath for IMM5688. Any ideas why twice?
