You still need two list.

For us, we stayed for a long weekend and the goods accompanying list was simple. I've attached the simple sheet for reference, and you'll see we didn't go into too much detail, although the items have been made up in this attachment for obvious reasons. We had no issues with this format at all.

We used the same simple format for both lists.

Hi,
We got a removals company (PSS) to come round to give us a free quote a few weeks before we landed, they do the list for you and email it to you, all you have to do then is fill in how much everything is worth in Canadian dollars and total it up ( we forgot to total it up but the really nice man at imigration gave us a calculator and waited while we did this lol) They were not interested in the list that contained items we had on us at the time of landing, just the list of goods to follow. We also eventually chose PSS to move our stuff as they were the cheapest, but also helped us with lots of information ( although they haven't moved us yet, so I won't tempt fate ) we move on 31st October.....22 DAYS TIME from Staffordshire UK to Red Deer Alberta! Good Luck with your landing!
