Default NI - NB - we have arrived!!!

Hi All,

Well we have made it to Fredericton, NB. We arrived last Wednesday, have rather limited internet access in the apt so haven't been able to post sooner.
We picked up our WP's in Halifax, no major problems, she just took ages as my immigration lawyer had used to wrong NOC code in the letter so they had to find another one to use!! Everyone was very friendly though and she apologised for keeping us waiting
Have to say Fredericton is lovely and everyone we have met so far is very friendly. The snow drifts are incredible though, never seen so much snow in my life

Chat soon ,

Well I am so jealous Sinead, and congrats on your arrival in NB. We are still awaiting a TWP to start the ball rolling on our way to Fredericton in Aug 08 - we hope!!

Can you tell me what you think of Fredericton from a newcomer perspective pls?

Which part did you decide to live in as that is my first problem to overcome?

Thanks for any info
