Dear Miller and Jaj ,
Did you hear this story?
One day Ayub Khan the erstwhile dictator of Pakistan was relaxing in his garden and some of his poor country men came there to see him. The Dictator asked his security man to let them in side and he enquired them about their life and day to day problems. The visitors put up their problems and told him that they are struggling to eat even their daily bread and they could not afford a glass of milk.
The innocent young daughter of Ayub Khan came there and overheard this conversation She was astonished to know that bread was not available and asked the visitors “ So what? If you can not get bread and milk, go and eat cakes and drink chicken soup This will solve your problems�
This young innocent girl was not aware of the difficulties people facing in their life and gave her simple solution to their problems!!

If you think that just by coming to Canada your financial situation will improve immediately then you are for a shock of your life my friend. Most of the time first generation of immigrants struggle for long time and their kids (second generation) are those who will make it.

If such tiny amount as cost of plane ticket is so huge in the budget you have then please reconsider your plans as you may simply not being able to afford moving here or anywhere for that matter.

Just wanted to point out that even at the passport request stage you are advised Not to sell property, leave jobs, book flights or take any irrevocable action in case it all falls through.

In this country many people have most of their equity in their home, and it can and often does take many many months to get a house sold with today's stagnant market.

Also some people need to give up to 6 months notice of resignation from their jobs. My husband had to give 3 months and he "just works in a shop"!

Mind you, we haven't listened to the advice...... we gave notice when we got our med requests in May and have had the house on the market since the beginning of April!!! We're soon going to be looking for temporary employment cos we have a blinkin mortgage to pay!

Not whinging...... just saying, you can't always shoot out as soon as you get those lovely shiny visas!

I think we may be able to squeeze a quick "landing" trip in tho, sometime in August .... sell a few more heirlooms ......

Once you land and complete the paperwork you need a canadian address where your PR card will be sent, this will take approx 3 weeks. Once you have this you then can leave a re-enter the country. IF you forefit your Visa you will have to apply again as it informs you and go through the whole process again and cost
