Default immigration Card on Plane

Hello

I am moving to Canada in November to marry my Canadian Girlfriend in Dec. I will then apply for PR Status.

What is the best thing to put down on the immigration cards that need to be filled out on the plane.

Also, has any flown to Canada with Zoom Airlines?

Always tell the truth - lying or "forgetting" to disclose your true intentions will be an offence under immigration law and you don't want it to interfere with your plans.

I have been told that if I tell immigration of my true intentions (Which is to stay in Canada and Marry my Girlfriend), it is illegal for immigration to NOT let me into the country. Is this True?

But you don't need to tell them anything if they don't ask

Not true. Omission of material facts is a punishable offence under immigration law. When asking for admission at the port of entry every person is asked for the purpose of visit - and this is when you must tell the truth, not to lie or omit anything. You don't need to volunteer info about what you had for dinner last night but you must state truthfully purpose of your visit and any other information that may affect officer's decision.
