Hey all Was wondering whether there is anyone here that have made a move from Toronto to Vancouver, and whether you would like to share your experience in relation to the move, and comparing TO and Van? There is always a continuous search for quality of likfe, quality of family life, etc, and in a recent study published by Mercer, Vancouver was named as number 5 City in the world in relation to Quality of Life. Thanks!
Hello there, I need some advice, if anyone can help, i'll appreciate any suggestion. thanks. we are in the process of immigrating to Canada (we are hoping for end of next year). I'm going on Holiday next week to Montréal (I have family there),and I have allowance of 2 bags of 23 kg. for a few weeks holiday I don't need that much luggage, so I thought I could take some luggage to my family and leave it there until we move there. Now my issue: it's baby clothes and accessories. we spent a fortune buying them in SA, and hope to use them in the near future (they are all brand new, never used). My worry Is that if for some reason they check my luggage at the airport, will the immigration guy think that I'm pregnant (which I'm not) and coming to give birth in Canada and deny me entry for my holiday? my husband is already there for the holidays and he said they gave him a hassle at immigration (asking soooo many questions about the reason for his visit, tricking him with awkward questions to see if his intent is to stay. they did the same to me last time I went there, i'm pretty sure they'll do the same again this time around). if I have to take the bag with us when we immigrate it will cost us CAD 200 per bag of 23kg... tell me what you think, please? Thanks
I would like to connect with people who are about to embark on either a "Look and See" visit or have just received the good news and are starting to make the logistical decisions with regards to relocating. Many times I have sat back and wondered how I could have made this transition easier and wondered why it has taken me 2 years to finally feel human and more like me again. For some people it's easy for others it's along process. I don't believe their is a quick fix to the process, however I do believe that it can be made easier. However we as South Africans believe we have to conquer the world, by ourselves, when in hind sight, we could have just really listened to those that had been there, done that! Instead we argue, that "we know what we are doing" it won't happen to us, we know what we are doing" and then wonder why the hell it's so difficult! There is an easier way, talk to me and let us help. thanks
