    First of all, many congrats on the birth of your child. I was one of the person who got the baby added to the application after Visa and COPR was granted to me and my wife and then received a new set of COPR for all three of us.

    I was successfully able to link mine and my wife's PR card application to my GC Key account but was unsuccessful to link my son's application. Is it because the Place of Birth in my son's COPR was blank and therefore the immigration officer did not put anything in that field for him while he...

    Assuming you're landing for the first time, just get high colored printed photos of all the jewelry items you intend to bring to Canada. If you have original purchase receipts, then great but the officer didn't ask me about the receipts.

    I'm assuming "Goods to Follow" means things that you want to send through cargo at a later time and released through Canadian customs. But what if I make a short landing, declare all the stuff that is in my checked baggage at that time on the "Goods Accompanying" List, go back to my home...
