Re: CIC Citizenship timelines

I think around 5-6 weeks... I was expecting to wait 12 months or more based on the posts here, so the test letter came as quite a shock!

Re: Living in Windsor, working in Detroit - PR status?

Lots and lots of people work in Detroit and live in Windsor - personally I don't know the best answers to your questions, but I do know it's not an unusual situation. There are lots of local...

Re: CIC Citizenship timelines

If I had a stamp for every time I've entered Canada (mostly day trips, so don't count against citizenship), I'd have needed a new passport by now - must be well in excess of 100 times now... I did...

Re: Windsor, Ontario?

As a local though, you just learn to avoid those areas, unless you have morbid curiosity like DBD, there's just no reason to go there. The interstates can take you anywhere you want, to the perfectly...

Re: Windsor, Ontario?

I dunno what it was like before the "downturn" as I wasn't here, but haven't noticed any reduction in services.

Must have been a while since your last visit, as that detour has been gone for about 2 years I'd say from memory... Admittedly it wasn't great, but it only took a couple of mins to get to the...

Re: Booze etc from US

Any more than a 6-pack and you'll be asked to cough up in my experience.... And whilst you're in there paying for that, you'll have to pay tax on everything else non grocery.... So it's not worth it...

Re: Ontario - Vehicle Permit address change

Yes, don't have a massive problem with that.... More concerned that the left half of the permit still has my old address, does that matter? Not sure why they don't send you two labels, one for each...
