      Came here with a South African Queen size, with a frame of blackwood/yellow wood and loathe to get rid of it given the quality of the wood. However, obviously not in sync with North American sizes and when the time came to replace the mattress, what to do and so for years we did nothing. Then I discovered that the RV queen mattress is the same size as the South African queen and replacement was easy.

      Hi Mary Jane, Sorry for the late response and thanks as always for the helpful advice. I submitted my application mid-April and am still waiting to hear some news! I'll be able to start studying remotely, I just hope the visa goes through without any problems. Not sure if I should try book the medical exam now, or wait to receive the letter from immigration telling me to do the medical. I think I might need the letter from IRCC, as I requested a form related to my medical when submitting my application. I didn't submit a police clearance doc as I asked the university and read online that it normally isn't required for study permits. Thanks for the good wishes!

      That's amazing! I'm secretly optimistic, but not under the impression that it's going to be easy. So let's see. My language test has been booked for next week and the home affairs documentation is in process.

      That's awesome and exciting! My first contact with a person in Canada via LinkedIn ended up being my boss for the last 3.5 years Sometimes things just work out.
