Permanent Resident

I am now officially a Permanent Resident of Canada.

I “landed” on Friday with my wife at Sarnia, after taking a short trip to Michigan to do some shopping.

I had been incredibly nervous about the whole thing, but it was completely painless. Took no more than 15 minutes.

My PR Confirmation form was completed and stapled into my passport, and my Goods to Follow lists were stamped. I’m now free to import the rest of my belongings – I’ll finally be able to have my computer back! I’ve missed it so much. Using a netbook for the past 2 years has slowly been driving me insane.

Now I have to apply for a Social Insurance Number and an Ontario Health Card. I’ve already filled out the SIN application so I’m ready to walk into the Service Canada office next week. Then I’ll go to Service Ontario in Lambeth to get the application form I need for a health card.

Won’t be long until I have a job again either. I’ve been out of work for over a year, and I can’t wait to get back into employment.
