Re: What happens to debts in UK when moving to Canada?

The Production Centre, I believe, is Northampton County Court, which is where the majority of CCJ's relating to unpaid balances on finance taken out under the Consumer Credit Act, originate.

Re: What happens to debts in UK when moving to Canada?

That's a great explanation thanks.

In light of this, my original comment that a creditor is unable to obtain a judgement (and so start the process) against a non-resident, is correct?

Re: What happens to debts in UK when moving to Canada?

That the contract between lender and borrower is under UK law. A Canadian court wouldn't be able to hear it.

May be different for big businesses that borrow / lend outside of the CCA.

Re: Shoutout to Ottawa CBSA: landing on visitor visa

Glad to hear it went well. When it comes to landing as a PR, if you do it at a land crossing near Ottawa, do Cornwall rather than Prescott. They're much more friendlier.

Re: Words that Canadians struggle with

In Ottawa, most folk struggle with 'Thank you', particularly when I've held the door open for them.

Funny enough, Ottawans also struggle with Ottawa. Apparently, I work in Oddawa.

Re: Documents to isolate? Shippers in tomorrow!

You'll need to record the serial numbers of things, which if I recall correctly, the shippers don't do.

Probably best to do that before everything is packed away.

I agree, no harm in making a list on a TWP (we did), but don't expect them to give a damn about it when they process your permits when you arrive.
