Default Happy Days.....

Hah Hah....!

Just got the visas through the post after first applying in October 2004.

Now have the minor details such as selling the house, getting a job, moving the family. Quite daunting now......

Have sent off my application the Calgary Police and waiting for their response. Just read a thread that mentioned 12 days leave a year which is a bit worrying- I get 29 at present! Anyone in the Police- is this right??!!

Bit miffed about the exchange rate which was 2.3 something when we started applying. Can't believe what it is now.

Going out now for a recce in March and looking at areas for kids (2 and 5) in the suburbs and then move out in the Autumn all being well.

To everyone applying- You will get there eventually. Just a hell of a long wait. Hopefully it will all be worth it.

Aaaahhhh nice one bud, many congrats

Try and get in touch with wallace on here, she is a realtor in and around Calgary and her o/h was in the police. Very nice couple, great help to us.

We are going out in March also, another reccie. Wife is waiting for LMO result, fingers crossed it's a positive one.

Good luck to you, keep us posted

Carl

Hello!!

Congrats on the info recieved!!

I think there is generally a difference in holiday entitlement from the UK to Canada - something that is well publicised in books and things... Hopefully the benefit of a better life will make up for the lack of holidays!

Keep us posted with your news!
