It's good to go where ur friends r --- obviously that's a problem again with u -- thus look at it this way:
Toronto = Dubai, UAE
Calgary = Doha, Qatar

Yet a problem? -- Then think with ur heart.

Dear All,

We successfully landed at Toronto Pearson on 27th July. The hardest part through out the journey was the long and tiring 14 hours of direct flight. Once landed, the process was quite straight forward and smooth. The immigration officer only asked how much money we were carrying. He didn't ask to show the funds to him. We hired a porter at the time of baggage collection since we were carrying lots of suitcases. The customs official wasn't interested in looking at the pictures of the jewellery that we were carrying with us as well as the excel sheets of the items that we were carrying. I asked him again if he needs to see the jewellery pictures and he said they are needed only if the jewellery is included in "Goods to Follow". Right now, we are living in a hotel in North York. We will go tomorrow to Services Canada for SIN and then to the bank to open up an account. I am starting my new job on 1st August as I was fortunate enough to secure a job in my own field before landing. Also, I have an interview to attend tomorrow with a company in Mississauga. All in all, it feels good to be in Canada so far, but having a feeling of isolation as well since we used to have a very healthy social life in Dubai. Hope to overcome this feeling in future. More on all these things to come as the days go by. Best wishes to all.

Sincerely.

Nice to hear from you , :D
Thanks for sharing

All the very best and Good luck always.

no worries buddy i will be back there in 50 -60 days maxxx, we will have a bigggg group same like in dubai with captain leading us :D

stay in touch

Our landing experience

Hi All

I'm writing below our long overdue landing experience

We flew Swiss Air from DXB via Zurich. The halt at Zurich was for 6 hours but thanx to to the connecting Air Canada flight ( code share with Swiss) we got delayed by another 2 hours (I heard from friends that Air Canada getting delayed is a normal thing). Both the flights were good.
I landed in Toronto in the last week of June with my wife and 2 daughters.
The lady there actually asked me if I had a job - when I said no she asked me if I planned to look for one. I smiled and said "Yes first thing tomorrow"www.ttc.ca - great resource for information on the public transport in Toronto and it also helps you plan your trips
We visited a couple of malls bought groceries and got a general feel of the place.
We stayed at furnished apts at Sheppard and YongeThe great thing about this location is there was a mini mall across the road with a Tim Hortons - so the days when we were not making Bfast at home we ate there. The basement of the mall had the Sheppard TTC station so all we had to do was cross the road.First thing on Monday morning we applied for our SIN cards - again the location helped since we were walking distance from a Service Canada - took about 30 mins filled a form and we received our SIN numbers on the spot although the actual cards come in the mail later
We then went across to a Drive Test centre to open our driving files - both my wife and me had our experience letters from Dubai so we were immediately eligible for applying for a roadtest after our written test
I'm sure most of you have the driving experience but you should buy the Drivers handbook and study before you give the G1 written test
Also do practice on
www.apnatoronto.com - great resource again
The moment you pass you should apply for a road test date - I appeared for the G2 and passed - G will e the next time I visit :) which will be when
Hope this experience helps
I'm happy to answer any questions people might have based on our time there to the best of my ability - for the answers I don't know I will always refer you to the seniors
We are back in Dubai and planning for our permanent move
All the best

Congrats buddy for getting DL :D and thanks a lot for sharing ur experiences to all :D

Mr. Biju and Mr. Suresh, waiting for your take on the aforementioned :)
Hi,

Google phone voices getting disturbed nowadays and u need to have a US/canada a/c for the call feature and payment

so the best way now is, use any VOIP software like XtraVOIP, mobileplus, mobile dialer etc to call , it works out cheap.
