  2. I think it is the bare necessities. You will probably be pretty much starting from scratch.
  3. Welcome! A good site to go to is http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomer/welcome/index.html
    This is full of information for newcomers to Canada. Do you have someone here to meet you at the airport who can help you?

  5. Hi Sam,
    I bet you and your family are getting excited about coming here to Canada. I'm just writing to ask you to write and let me know how things are going after you get here. I hope everything goes well. I was glad to hear that you know some people here already. It will not be so scary for you.

    Hi Every one
    Thanks God We have finally reached canada, 1 May 2007, As I have promissed to write the details once I get here so here I am hope that would help,
    The journey wans't difficult since we have taken a direct flight, the Immigration department took around 45 min in regard of immigration paper work, nothing special it was very easy and straight, the we went to pick up our bags and went to customs, the custom havent cheak or opened our luaguage even though we have almost 200 KG 6 big Bags, it all went smooth, We have just applied for an Appartment yesterday and will be moving in from 14 may 2007, we have found out that you have to have some one to co-sign you to get an appartment since you have no credit history or job latter ...so thats what any one should keep in mind ......also you would be needing a Sin Number ( Social Insurance Number) to apply for an appartment, but a bank account can be open without a Sin number ...! Hope this all would thanks . Regards SAM
