Thank you ram for the info, is it possible to summarize the information on settlement plan, so that it might give us an idea.
The Settlement Plan has the following headings
INSTRUCTIONS
Welcome to your personalized settlement plan. This will help you get the best possible start on your
new life in Canada.
For convenience, the plan is broken down into checklists for before you leave, crossing the border,
and your first few weeks, as well as other personalized information by topic, such as Money,
Connecting, and Culture. If you prefer you can also view the entire plan on a single page.
(PV0009)
Print (PR0009) or email (EA0001) your plan so that you have a copy. If you leave this settlement
plan inactive for more than 20 minutes, you won't be able to come back to your answers and will
need to start again.

YOUR PROFILE
Below are your answers to the Living in Canada questionnaire. You should make sure they accurately
reflect your situation. If any answer is wrong, you can use the back button to make changes. Any
time you make changes to your profile, your settlement plan will be updated.
Make sure you print or email yourself this plan so that you can refer to it later.
You have identified yourself as:
from INDIA
still waiting on application status
not yet in Canada
moving to Saskatchewan
having no children under 18 living with you
Your needs include:
finding a place to live
improving your language skills
finding a job

BEFORE YOU LEAVE
Learn about life in Canada (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/before-canada.asp) and
about the rights and responsiblities (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/beforerights.
asp) of residents in Canada.
Gather all of your important documents. (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/beforeborder.
asp) Consider having them translated into English or French before you arrive. You will
need these documents to enter Canada, to get identification papers, or to work and go to
school.
You may not be able to get taxpayer-funded health insurance coverage right away. Buy
private health insurance for that time. (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/afterhealth.
asp)
Plan where you will stay during your first days in Canada. If you need temporary housing make
arrangements to stay with family or friends or book a hotel in a central location.
Canada is a large country with many places to live, each with its own weather, culture, services
and more. Choose a city or town that's right for you.

will need.
At the border you will need to present: a valid passport or other travel document for yourself and
each family member traveling with you. Find out if you also need a Temporary Resident Visa to

You will also need to complete a declaration of goods form (http://www.cbsa.gc.ca/travelvoyage/
ifcrc-rpcrc-eng.html#card) listing of all the personal or household items you are bringing
with you.
You will have two border crossing interviews.
(http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/newcomers/before-border-interview.asp) Be prepared to talk
about your official documents and what you're bringing to Canada with you.
Make sure you know what you can and cannot bring into Canada.

Sorry all for the long post. But I just did the settlement plan using the link provided by our fellow mates and have posted the entire plan. The headings are in CAPS and the content and links are in read. I am just skeptical if this is the settlement plan, even though it says so as its fairly simple.

I request all the thread mates to give feedback on the settlement plan is it similar to the one posted or not.

Also Canph, as far as the documents are concerned, I have already have them scanned with me. Should we have any document scanned after notarising them or just the plain simple document scanned would do

Passport pages for self and dependants
Birth Certificates for self and dependants
Educational Certificates (I also have two sets of sealed transcripts)
WES Certificate to prove Canadian Equivalency
Proof of funds ( Will be getting 6 months bank statement and 2 FDs)

Let me know if I have missed out on anything

So if I have all the documents ready, I just need to wait for Jan 2nd 2014, is that right ?

For the NOC part, you have to check with the province website once the same is out. You can also check it here in the below link's appendix.

As for the settlement plan, just a few posts back, I have posted my settlement plan and another of our forum member Canph has also got one similar to the same. So we are waiting for other forum members to also confirm
