Change first or last name during landing process

  1. Hello dear All
    I hope I have chosen the right place to post my question ...

    We are preparing to our landing process and I would like to know if it is possible to change my wife's last name.

    During landing? During getting a SIN?
    Or we have to wait get Canadian citizenship to be able to change name/surname?

  2. You can do that before or after landing and before becoming Canadian citizen.
  3. I cannot do this before because I already have CoPR visas, issued according my passports.

    After - yes, I can, but this costs some (120$+) money.

    I wanted to do this for free ;)
  4. Hi..please allow my silly question. May i understand why so many people need to change their last name before come into Canada ? Is it really important to do this ?
  5. In my case were married but cannot change my wife's last name due to other problems ...
  6. Why is it important to change your wife's last name?
  7. IMHO it is normal to have the same last name after marriage ....
  8. Hi

    1. It is a choice in Canada for a spouse to retain her maiden name, except in Quebec where it is mandatory.
  9. No, we just want to ;)
