Default Landing but not staying

Hi my husband is travelling to Vancouver for work and is intending to land as he just received his PR last month (spousal sponsorship as I am CDN) and we hope to move this year. Does he need anything else to land as he is only there for two days for work? I haven't received any further information that I know of where we can see what the next steps are for us in terms of moving, so if someone could point us in the right direction I would be grateful! ex. how does everyone know about this moving list you need?

Presumably they just read the CIC website.
Before you arrive: Prepare to move - Crossing the border: documents you need
Important things to do before and after you arrive in Canada

There's various other info on the CIC website and in the Wiki, including examples of Goods to Follow lists.

HTH.

He should inform CBSA that he is doing the landing but NOT ESTABLISHING RESIDENCY. No need to provide a list of goods to follow if he does this.

Variation Between Customs/Immigration Legislation

9. A person’s status for customs purposes is not always the same as their status for immigration purposes.

10. As an example, a person can become a permanent resident without the intention of residing immediately in Canada. However, this person is not determined to be a settler as defined in the customs legislation, and be eligible for the provisions of tariff item No. 9807.00.00. In this case, since the person does not have any intention of remaining in Canada at that time, and will live outside Canada for an undetermined period of time, that person is considered a non-resident of Canada and not a settler, for the purpose of the Customs Tariff, and is eligible to temporarily import goods under tariff item No. 9803.00.00.

D2-2-1 - Settlers' Effects - Tariff Item No. 9807.00.00
