Default Entering Canada for the first time as a FSW - then leaving...

Hi, I've got a few questions about entering Canada for the first time under the Federal Skilled Worker program.

I received my Confirmation of Permanent Residence form in 2012 and have until February 13th to enter Canada.

My questions are as follows:

1. I currently live and work in Seattle, and it's my intention to continue to reside in the US until my current employment contract expires in at the end of this year. It is therefore my intention to drive up to the US/CA boarder, submit all of my documentation and apply for permanent residence card. I'm planning on having my PR card mailed to a friend in Vancouver, so once i've got everything in the post i will just turn around and drive back to Seattle. I'm wondering if anyone sees any flaws in this approach?

2. Do i need to apply for a Social Insurance Number at this point?

3. In terms of the documentation i require, i will obviously need my Confirmation letter, all of my paperwork and proof of funds. Will i require a full inventory of possessions given that i'm not intending on moving until 2014? Is there any way that i can declare my possessions at a later date?

4. Finally if anyone knows of some good knowledgeable legal council that could guide me through this process would you mind PM'ing me their details?

Thanks!

Mikey

You really don't need 'knowledgeable legal counsel' for this bit, you've done all the hard part!

Most of the info you need is in the Wiki, so have a look at these -
