It is nice to hear the positives as opposed to the negatives.
Form done - credit given to the officer in question!!

It is a bit of a thankless job, actually - lots of people just passing through, so no relationships established like in a lot of other customer service roles and having to scrutinise everybody and be a bit stern in case they do turn out to be bad guys.

I do think that it is nice to hear when someone is happy about the experience they have had.

I often wonder about those who have the difficult experiences - maybe I have been lucky (in which case I have been lucky a lot of times) but something in me says that maybe the Immigration Officer isn't always the problem....

Once again, the US border guards were very nice and not at all intimidating or frosty.

Then we came back to do the paperwork at the Canada side.

All went beautifully and quickly - not a single other soul in the whole place except us two and the border guards.
Our guy - the only one actually on duty at the desks - was super nice, friendly and had a joke with us.
He gave us a handshake, a Canada pin and a flag and wished us, "Welcome to Canada!".

Just two days under 17 months from application received by CIO to landed immigrants.
I am feeling a bit tearful now we are home, actually.
It has been quite fraught at times with me and OH having to live apart for so long and I wouldn't want to go through that again but it is done now.
Congratulations! Hope your enjoying a wel deserved celebartory tipple tonight!

Many thanks again, everyone.

I can certainly recommend the Pacific Crossing for activating PR on a Superbowl Sunday at about 5pm!
