Assalam o Alaikum,
I am very thankful to Allah (SWT) that today I am sharing our landing experience. We took Air Transit (Thomas cook) flight from London. Will not recommend as there is almost no leg space and we asked if we can get seat next to exit for which they asked £39 per person one way, extra drinks and head phone were not free. Landed at Toronto airport, immigration took few minutes, funds were checked (not counted) extra photos were not asked as the officer was happy with the one on landing papers, customs took more as the photos of jewellery were not very clear and list of goods to follow was not detailed. (Qorax mentioned so many times to be prepared but I missed the trick with photos, list to follow and travel money). Exchange few £ for $ at airport, would not recommend at all. Shuttle service was already booked so went to Hotel in Downtown, Delta Chelsea Hotel, excellent location and the largest hotel in Canada, but expensive too, only internet cost $6 for 15 minutes. but as I said location was great. They didn't have 3 pin adopter so we had to buy from shop to charge our mobiles and toothbrushes. Applied for SIN card which around 20 minutes, spent 7 nights and now back to London.
I am really thankful to this forum where I learned a lot from seniors especially Qorax.

Qorax, My family will not accompany me when I land. They will join me after 2 months. I'll bring POF with me. When my family arrives, will they still have to show POF?

No. POF is shown only once - during the PA's landing.

Not a problem. This happens due the shortage of character space on each field on the forms/cards. On their system it'd show correctly.

Eg. If the name is "Granderfargoussen" - most likely it'd show "Granderfarg" on the forms/cards.

Relax!

qorax, if the waiting time for OHIP is 3 months, do they even take the application or they tell you to return in three months? I'm planning to land in December. Does Services Canada also deals with insurance cards besides SIN?
