Hello Everyone,

However, I heard a rumour one time about not sending PR Cards through post because customs will intercept them... please does anyone know how true or possible this is? does anybody have any insight/experience and has anyone actually had their cards posted and gotten them in the recent past?

Any insights or thoughts will be appreciated!

thank you.

I would advise you against sending it by mail, courier or non-courier. If you know any responsible person going to Nigeria, let them help you to hand carry it, and even at that, write a letter of consent with it, just incase it's found on him/her.

Hi everyone, hope we are keeping safe.

Please can the landed Seniors in Edmonton and Calgary give me the pros and cons of living in both cities. Also areas or communities to live in and any other word of advice. Thanks.

Should you decide to settle in Calgary and in need of a 3 bedroom house to rent, lets talk. My renter house will be available in three weeks time. It's in NW area of the city.

A friend couriered my PR card to me last December, it was opened probably by custom thereafter resealed and delivered within 4days from Manitoba to Lagos

Hello Everyone,

I soft-landed at the peak of COVID drama. My PR card has finally been delivered to my friend's address but I've already left Canada. In order to come back to canada, I have to either get a PRTD or get my PR Card posted to me in the UK. I know IRCC is currently back-logged on a lot of things, they are saying the processing time for PRTDs is 3 months. I'll prefer to have my friend send my PR Card via DHL express tracked.

However, I heard a rumour one time about not sending PR Cards through post because customs will intercept them... please does anyone know how true or possible this is? does anybody have any insight/experience and has anyone actually had their cards posted and gotten them in the recent past?

Any insights or thoughts will be appreciated!

thank you.

Hey guys, if you’re in Toronto and you’re within the ages of 18 to 30 without a job, you can contact me and get to apply for this opportunity.

It’s a training on how to get a job and the good news is you get paid for it. It’s $14 per hour and no tax deducted.

Thanks for the response. I am actually in the UK, and that would be my first preference too. But because of COVID, I really don't know anyone travelling one way or the other. Everybody is just where they are. I still have some time though, so I'll probably wait and keep looking for someone travelling from Canada to the UK

Hi Guys!
Please is there any pharmacist on this thread currently in Canada? I’d like to know;
1) what Kind of jobs are available for someone like me pending when I’m able to get my license to practice there,
2) what’s your take on the best field to go into if one is considering a career change (still in the health sector though).
Thank you.
