I’m really tired, so I’m not going to go into too much detail, but we went to the border. We rented a Smart Car, which I’ll write about some time later. Everyone who’s thinking of getting one should drive one. Everything went more or less as we expected, except that Pam was unable to get her Work Permit this time. Long story, and it involves a classic Catch-22 that’s worth explaining. When I have more energy, I’ll do so. It should be resolved soon, but she’s pretty frustrated, and I would be, too, if I were in her place.
A call came through to our Immigration lawyer that the official who was handling my Provincial Nomination wanted to get our case handled before the move of the office from Victoria to elsewhere, so tomorrow I have to photocopy the Work Permit get in touch with Big T Moving & Delivery, at the boss’ special request. This is very good news. With both the HRSDC Opinion and the Provincial Nomination (say that three times fast!) in place, the process of getting us to Landed Immigrant status will kick into overdrive. Well, maybe it will be at a brisk walk compared to a leisurely amble. We’ll see. In 6 months, (that would be…early May, around Mother’s Day) we could be Landed Immigrants. All of this less than a year from when we left Cambridge, MA!
