    HOW TO ANSWER THESE QUESTIONS AT LANDING ?

    Jewelry is not a monetary instrument, even thought it can be monetized. So don’t consider it under currency/monetary instruments. Gold coins would qualify, though. It’ll be wise to keep the GTF forms and the official jewelry valuations handy. Indicate your friend’s address. As a landed...

    Soft landing

    1) No, you’re expected to declare any cash you have on your person, if it exceeds CAD10,000. For proof of funds, you only need to present a document that proves you have the minimum amount required as defined for your family size. It’s not about declaring your net worth, and no, you’ll not be...

    Can new immigrants use UPS mailbox for PR card address?

    The cost varies by store, so you’d have to check with each store for a quote. Personally, it cost me CAD200 for a year’s rental. It could have been lower as I was charged an additional fee for each additional person that’d be receiving mail through the box (family members).

    Job offer letter confirmation

    Why do you have to pay this money? Did he say? This would be a weird scam - they advise you to pay money to the embassy? Really weird.

    Difference between Software Engineer and a Computer Programmer

    I believe you’d fall in NOC 2011. Data Scientists may not be included but there are closer options such as statisticians or Operations research analysts. Here’s a link for you to look at: http://www23.statcan.gc.ca/imdb/p3VD.pl?CLV=4&CPV=2161&CST=01012011&CVD=122376&Function=getVD&MLV=4&TVD=122372

    Looking for Jobs in Canada, please help?

    US phone number and address are definitely a turn-off. Put your self in the recruiter’s shoes. Would you consider a candidate that is residing outside the country of prospective employment when you have a 100s of applications from candidates in the same city the position would be located? Out of...

    is FORM B4/B4A given at airport?

    I believe the CO was referring to items you’re carrying on your person. However, for items that will come in later, you MUST fill those forms or else you’ll pay taxes on the items. When you land and present those forms, customs issues you a blue slip which verifies that the items are tax...

    Landing/proof of funds info required

    In that case, you’re likely to be a passnger on the next flight to your point of departure. The rules are clear and IOs the world over are paid to enforce them. So, I strongly suggest you do not take the risk of landing with insufficient funds. You may get lucky and end up at the counter of that...

    PR Card Photos rejected

    It depends on the volumes they're processing. Did you include a cover letter? I was advised to include it, I received my kid’s card in 2 weeks after submitting the new pics. I don’t know how much it helped, if at all. It may be useless. I suggest you call for a status report. All the best

    My box was in Montreal. I noticed from a different post you’d be residing in Ontario. My advice? Go to ups.ca, locate stores near your residence and call/email them for the information.

    SOFT LANDING- NEED GUIDANCE ON PR CARD

    I mean it didn’t show the new address, immediately. Once the change is implemented, you’ll see the new address, not the old one. So, don’t be alarmed if it still displays the old address for a few days.

    Planning to land in December...Canadian taxes?

    You don’t file tax returns because you owe. You file because it’s the law - you must declare your income. Whether you owe or not, is a separate discussion.

    SOFT LANDING- NEED GUIDANCE ON PR CARD

    @cozymozy here’s the link: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/information/change-address.asp The last time I did it, the interface didn’t immediately show the change. I’m not sure if that’s still the case, but if it is, it shouldn’t worry you. The site, at that time, advised a 15 day waiting period...

    SOFT LANDING- NEED GUIDANCE ON PR CARD

    You could try, but there’s a chance it’ll be rejected. I know someone who offered an address outside their province of nomination, the IO rejected it. I’d advise you have a plan B.

    Can items be purchased from US after landing as part of B4a (186a)

    True! It’s a requirement to indicate the serial numbers. With that in mind, the OP has a lot of thinking to do. Either buy the item before landing or buy it later and pay taxes.

    SOFT LANDING- NEED GUIDANCE ON PR CARD

    The link is right. Your PR status does not guarantee approval of your PRTD application. On whether you should be present or not for any procedures, I believe it is ideal after all.

    SOFT LANDING- NEED GUIDANCE ON PR CARD

    You become a PR when you complete the landing stage of the process. The card is just for purposes of confirming your status to authorities/employers and for travel, particularly entry into Canada. So, if you complete your landing and leave after a week, you’re a PR. However, you won’t be able...
