Hey there :)

I just had my interview on the 26th, and I'm hoping to leave by April 6th. With that being said, I was wondering who I NEED to contact regarding my move. I know I need to sign up for something on the CDN government as aboard and I think I have to get in contact with Social Insurance and what not..but I'm really confused!

So if anyone could please enlighten me on what preparations I should be making, as far as what government agencies and what not to call.

Thank you so much in advance. :)

I only dealt with two places before I left: my bank and the CRA. The bank was for obvious reasons, closing accounts and transferring funds. CRA was a waste of time. I notified them that I would be no longer eligible for GST refunds, updated my address, etc... They ignored all of that and I still had to deal with returning cheques, etc.

Here is a good thread for you, though. Took some digging:

good advice from above. What I did as well was emptied my wallet, and cancelled stuff such as video store rentals, credit cards, etc etc, YEs, a little drastic cancelling video store rental places,lol but didnt want someone abusing them!!!

Maybe its in the links above, but there is a place on the Canadian govt webpage, that u can but in ur foreign address.


Canadians Visiting the USA while undergoing the visa process, my free advice:

1) Always tell the TRUTH. never lie to the POE officer

2) Be confident in ur replies

3) keep ur response short and to the point, don't tell ur life story!!

4) look the POE officer in the eye when speaking to them. They are looking for people lieing and have been trained to find them!

5) Pack light! No job resumes with you

6) Bring ties to Canada (letter from employer when ur expected back at work, lease, etc etc)

7) Always be polite, being rude isn't going to get ya anywhere, and could make things worse!!

8) Have a plan in case u do get denied (be polite) It wont harm ur visa application if ur denied,that is if ur polite and didn't lie! Refer to #1

Bern- I posted this before on other VJ threads, but I thought it can help you here too...

As for moving, from Canada to the USA (I've been here in the USA since 2006), I did the following:

I notified:

-Revenue Canada and Elections Canada (with the "final tax return" in 2007, to prevent tax fraud and to officially notify the Canadian government that I'm not living in Canada anymore, and had to cancel and return those GST cheques I'm not entitled to and would be in trouble for keeping such)

-Passport Canada (when they added my married name to my maiden name passport in 2007)

-Passport Canada again (when I applied for a new passport recently in my married name in 2009)

-I closed my Canadian bank account in Canada (2007)

-I let someone in Canada collect my personal mail for me, and then notified those people by mail that I moved (2006-Present)

-Family, friends, and other acquaintances that I keep in contact with (2006-Present)

-The Office of the Attorney General (optional...but this was after I received the forwarded jury duty notice in 2009....I had no choice there but to tell them that I moved and that I couldn't serve on a Canadian jury)

I didn't notify:

-Social Insurance (Human Resources Canada, I think) as I wouldn't be working in Canada anymore and wouldn't need a new card.

-OHIP (Ontario Health Insurance) as my card already expired and I can't use it here, so I never renewed it.

-MTO (Ministry of Transportation Ontario) as my license was automatically transfered, surrendered, and destroyed here by the DMV in NYS. Note: You cannot have 2 driver's licenses at the same time (at least that's the way it is here in NYS), so you would either have to pick between the American one or the Canadian one to keep.

Anyone else I need to notify, I can't think of, and haven't done such.

Hope this helps. Good luck on the rest of your immigration journey too.
