    Moving back to Canada - Are moving expenses tax deductible?

    I'm a Canadian citizen, but have not lived in Canada, nor been a Canadian tax resident for 10 years. I moved back to Canada permanently last year with my non-Canadian husband (who became a PR last year). We both also started new jobs when we moved back to Canada. Can we claim our moving...

    Thread for Outland LONDON, UK Applications!

    We received COPR today. I guess we're going to make a trip to Montana over the holidays. It is conditional that we remain in a relationship for 2 years. We've been living together 5 years, but married for just under 2 years. I'm wondering if it wouldn't be conditional if we hadn't gotten...

    Thread for Outland LONDON, UK Applications!

    We received notice (from Manilla???) that my husbands medical was not extended. He did not need to get a full medical, but a new chest xray and a visit to a panel doctor (total $275). And it turns out the doctor couldn't send it the results electronically as the file has been locked by the NZ...

    So we got an email from the London office saying that our request to extend my husband's medical has been received, but that requests are not always successful. His medical expires next week. Our case notes from July show that medical passed and our relationship seems credible He's English...

    Thread for Outland LONDON, UK Applications!

    As we approach the one year mark since we filled our application, I'm feeling quite disappointed. My husband's medical will expire next week and even though we asked for an extension a month ago, we haven't heard a peep since sponsor approval in January. Our case notes from a couple of months...
