Default Landed in Calgary 13/08

Hi Guys,

Just a quick update on our landing experience.

We landed in Calgary on Friday 13th August as a family of five to land but our situation was to land but then return to UK to finalise.

We were waved through passport control and onto the immigration office where we processed our COPR and had our passport visas activated and scribbled on.

The lady at the desk was very helpful, and we werent asked many questions at all. The family all signed their COPR and our visas were marked with a single black line.
We werent asked for proof of funds, though we had that with us just in case.

We provided a forwarding address in Calgary for the PR cards, and the lady advised we should arrive as tourists and have our friends meet us at the airport with our cards the next time we arrived.

After activating visas, we then moved to another desk where we handed in our goods to follow list. we handed over 3 copies, which they then attached a sticker with a bar code. they didnt want a copy of our goods to follow.
The list was generated on Excel and had rough canadian values indicated.

The whole experience took less than 30 minutes and Im now very pleased to say that after 4 and a half years of waiting we are now Permanent residents of Canada.

On top of this, and it gets better, I had a 3 and a half hour interview in Calgary for a position in Edmonton which I was duely offered and now am waiting for an official offer........ how good is that????
