Default Been a while... but PR card has come through the post!

Hey everybody,

been a long while since I've been on the forum since getting my COPR (August). So thought I'd give my experience of landing at YYZ Toronto.

I landed as a PR in September, a month after receiving all the documents in the post, and the whole process was very straight forward. I had already made a goods accompanying list and a goods to follow list on Excel and printed two copies. Waited in line at Immigration and told the Officer that I was here to "land" and showed him my documents. He told me to join the line at the next immigration point, where they ask you all extra questions etc. Stood and waited in line there for about 20 minutes. When it came to my turn, I was told to wait again for another Officer

After waiting a further 20 minutes, I was called for my turn and the Officer took my documents and started going through everything. She took around 10 minutes, asked questions regarding the information on the COPR and made sure everything was still correct. She then signed and made me sign the paper and with that, I was done!

She recommended getting my SIN number as there was also a Service Canada there and after 10 mins, had my SIN number too!

My goods to follow list was sorted out at customs and stamped. Few days later, my stuff arrived and everything was cleared through.

Since then, I got my full G license, which was a straight swap over from my UK license. Started a new job and now on the hunt for a car.

That's awesome! Glad your whole landing process was smooth, minus the bits of waiting, but at least it was all sorted out in the end!

Hope you are enjoying your new setup in Toronto!

Did you expect it (PR card) to arrive by carrier pigeon or sled dog team?

Mine was hand delivered by a redcoated Mountie on a shiny black horse.
