You are preparing to immigrate and it means you have to do things on your own...no more PAP telling you what to do and yet you still want people to spoon feed you?
You ask "Where you can get police clearance?"
Look into the instruction sheets and the Canadian High Com has all the info fro you.
Wake up be a man...an independent man.
I am making $$ by putting a house on contract and flipping this contract to build up my war chest again. So far market for western Canada has started to move up again. Good times are coming again.
Lucky immigrant. I feel happy for him.
But at the end of the day, we hear of people who mismanage their sudden wealth.
A study of lottery winners shows that 10 years after winning, most of the winners have spent their winning and are back to square one, some fare even worse, being deep in debt. Only 5-10% are doing extremely well or even better. Not much difference from the general population proportion of the rich.
Do it for your kids. Don't hesitate anymore.
Submitted by Carolyn B. Heller on November 30, 2009 – 7:50 amNo CommentIs Canada the best place in the world for expats to live?
According to the 2009 HSBC Expat Experience Survey, it is.
Canada topped the list of best places to live, with expats there reporting the highest overall increase in their quality of life since arriving in the country.
The survey polled more than 3,000 expats around the world, assessing whether their overall quality of life increased or decreased during their overseas assignment.
Canada was also number 1 in “quality of accommodation,” with 68% of expats reporting that their homes were better in Canada than in their native country.
Canada received high scores in how easy it is for expats to make friends, to pursue hobbies, and to improve the quality of life with their families.
According to survey respondents, the top reasons for living in Canada include:
Better environment/quality of life for my children (39%)
Career prospects (35%)
Less crime (13%)
Other interesting findings:
Canada has a high proportion of retired expats: 24% compared with 7% worldwide.
Canada’s expat community is older than average, with 61% age 45 or over.
More than two-thirds of Canadian expats own property in the country, which is double the global average of 31%.
More than 60% of expats in Canada reported that organizing their finances and their health care was easy.
Nearly 40 percent said that their health improved since arriving in Canada.

I do not paint a beautiful pictures to migration to Canada. In fact, in my reply to the samster that wrote to me. I tell them that the 1st year is the most challenging but as the years progresses. I tell them that they will savour the triumph over this new challenges.
Sorry got carry away alittle. Just wanted to give a perspective to reality.
Canada has possibly the greatest potential of any nation. And this covers its wonderful landscape, its proven vast economic resources and good governance. What it badly needs is people and in huge numbers to reach critical mass to drive get its economy to the next level. Canadians as a group of people are highly rated for their manners, character and deportment like the Kiwis.
Regina ranks second and Saskatoon third in CIBC economic activity index.
Both cities in Saskatchewan, the bread basket of N. America and it has
40% of Canada's farmland.
Buy a farmland, people need to eat. Fiat(fake) currencies can become
worthless overnight(N. Korea). Get real assets.
the comparison usa is like australia, canada is like new zealand is fairly accurate. maybe have more fun in usa/aust but people nicer easier living in canada/nz

Bro, good to have you back. I recall you as an early vet of the old SBF and your comments about employement pass vs PR. In view of your background, you will be helpful in the area of cross border stuff. As you are familiar with the legendary "courteous" manner, I am sure you will feel at home.
