Thanks guys, really appreciate your help.
Any idea which is the best bank with no annual fee, lets say if i maintain 12000 CAD minimum and having presence in both toronto and calgary. My plan is to move permanently next year to CAD.
You can't go wrong with the big banks - BMO, RBC, Scotia Bank, TD & CIBC

Try this site for a comparison of the various services offered by the above and a few other banks -www.nofeebanking.ca

HI

The best way is to start an account with Scotia bank so u wont have any charges for 1 year , after that they will charge CAD 11.95 per month for checking a/c. All other banks charge from the start itself for checking a/c. for a book of 50 cheques we will be charged CAD 42.50.

if u open a saving a/c there is no service charge BUT if u do any kind of transaction , u will get charged for each and every transaction u do eg: if u do any purchase with atm from saving a/c u will get CAD 5 as transaction charge.

in saving a/c u will get 1.1% interest (current rate- june 2013)

Hope u got an idea :D. its very differnt from UAE

Dear Seniors
I am an Indian nationality , holding Indian passport currently residing in Qatar.
Myself, My spouse and Our 2 kids are traveling to Calgary (Canada) on 31/07/2013 via KLM Dutch Airlines passing through Amsterdam and there is 6 .45 Hrs. Aircraft transfer delay in Amsterdam Schiphol Airport .
Since we are migrating to Canada and We all have valid IMMIGRANT/ Resident CANADA VISA with expiry on 07.09.2013.
Should we required a Airport Transit Visa to Change the Aircraft in the same airport in Amsterdam? . We are not intended to visit Netherlands
Pls advise

First Q 2014
@ Unni - As a transit passanger, you wont be asked for a visa at Netherland. Coz you probably wouldnt be allowed to enter Netherlands (i.e. clearing their customs). Hence rest assured.
