Default PR Visas Arrived - Yeessssss

Got back from work and they were there, sitting there, in the brown envelope! So happy.

We arrived in Canada, B.C. back in June 2006 on a TWP, and I can tell you the last two years have not been plain sailing, particularly as I was tied to a company which was going nowhere fast but down. So in January this year I was given the option by the previous owner (despite it going down) to buy it or go back to the UK.

I knew that if we went back we simply could not afford to come back - we'd never have enough for moving costs/proof of funds etc. - once our PR application was finally processed. So I bought the company and worked my back-side off to turn it around, so that it wasn't loosing each month, but making enough so that myself and my family could remain in Canada (it's not the type of company to make millions, alas!). The company is still on shakey ground, mainly due to the credit crunch, but having the PR visas means that if the worst came to the worst and I had to close it, at least I'm not tied to it anymore and have to take my family back because of it collapsing. That, in itself, is such a relief!! Although, I'll carry on for now with the company and see if I can make anything of it.

Anyway, I just wanted to share my happiness with all on the forum and thank everyone for their advice/suggestions. I'm off for well deserved drink...

Thanks everyone, I really appreciate all your comments above.

Woke up this morning, with a bit of a sore head!! Slept very well mind you.

Anyway, I'll have a relaxed Friday, but I'll certainly enjoy this weekend!!

Thanks again.
