Are you guys staying in Winnipeg, or heading to Brandon directly?

Nitin
Thanks a lot, Nitin. We will be staying in Winnipeg, I will start working here in July, and therefore Brandon remains on the screen, but not for the first few years.

Well, we got in after eleven at night and went through the custom thing bit with passport and had a grumpy little man who didnt want me to speak - thats like telling me not to eat chocolate for a year!!! Never going to happen!! (was that you FL????? haha, I really hope not!!!). Anyway, we got past there, sent to the red chaired room and was dealt with by a wee guard that was very nice. Then the other guard came back with more guards - and I thought I just might either die or be left to sleep in a darkened room for the night, I wasnt too fussed which because we were so very tired.
It ended up he was just curious how I got in to canada and why I was doing it this way - without sponsor, friends, family, no job, no home etc. And to be honest I have wondered the same thing for weeks so fair enough.
Believe me standing in immigration wondering what the hell am i doing here is probably not the best time to be thinking it because they want you to answer questions as well like - how did you get in - and my feeling was that the answer 'on a plane' was not going to bounce!! So I tried - i applied, had an interview and was accepted - hummmm that led to more questions - very long 20-30 minutes but ended up very nice and pleasent to be honest as did the questioning man. They said that most people are sponsored in or on work permits. I like to be unique .
We were through in maybe under an hour but to be honest we really did lose track of time so I am not sure how long it took.
We had our lists stamped and were on our merry way to a much needed hotel room. It was really cold but not too bad, minus something like only 4 or 5 and theres lots of piles of snow everywhere and some frozen river still.
So, it was an experience and all I would say is expect questions that you dont expect like - how did you get here!!!
Hey Violet,

Congrat on your landing and all the best to you and your daughter.

Hello Dammy,

Yes, I am still waiting for the MR. LVO taking their time to process application. I am pretty sure it would come very soon by His grace.

All the best. We would chat later. Jaysuper

Violets, congratulations on your Landing, very pleased for you. We hope to follow your path later on this year. Winnipeg will start to look like a mud hole soon with all the melt, stay away from the expected great flood!

Markus,

Wow you don't hang around "Speedy" wishing you all the best for landing and look forward to meeting you sometime this year. What line of business are you in? Once your settled, remember to visit the Krevco store in Winnipeg (Near the airport) you get a good discount from my brother on many items that you might need. PM me for his name before you go.

Good luck

Andrew

Congratulations violets, really pleased ur landing went well. I dread the questions, those immigration officials also seem intimidating, and never understand my humour.

Good luck for friday conmar let us know how it goes.
