    Renting a house before moving

    Yes, similar situation for us when we moved here in Calgary. I'd say, it depends on who you are renting from. We rented from the building management, not individual landlord. We just proved that we had enough saving (our settlement fund) then they gladly accepted it. :)

    Making friends as an introvert in new country?

    It is so true. Adults are not as forthcoming when it comes to making new friends. As we grow older, we tend to stay in contact with those we have known from early years.

    Upfront medical exam and proof of fund

    1. EE is in place for quite a few years. I'm surprised that medical centres still don't offer a type that says EE... Three years ago I was asked the same by the medical centre I went to -- they had no idea what express entry was, so I just randomly chose Work. 2. I provided fixed deposit...

    Alberta PNP demand list

    As far as I understand, you just wait, nothing more you can do. Medium demand means less chance than High Demand NOCs, but not totally impossible. Stay positive and meanwhile explore other options too.

    Medicals heart murmur and eye sight

    Personal opinion: doesn't sound to be anything serious, serious enough to reject you. Ask yourself this question, do these conditions of yours cause financial burden to the Canadian Healthcare system? From what you said, you are not even going through any treatment! So. :) Relax and wait...
