Well finally today we got the last document we've been waiting on. I'm sooooo happy. :dance: My husband has an interview in Vancouver on the 7th and we were pretty stressed about getting a court document (the 4-6 weeks they'd told us 8 wks ago had come and gone) in time. But now I can really look forward to the interview. I am going to meet my husband in Vancouver for the weekend and then our interview is on tuesday. We are staying at a hotel close to the embassy (i can't remember the name right now :blush: ). I was just wondering if anyone had tips to give me about the embassy that haven't been posted in the review section. And i have a more specific question about the paperwork. Does it need to be in any certain order or is it ok as long as you know where everything is in your stack? I'm already planning on taking everything in in a plastic grocery bag so there are no security problems.

Also does anyone have any good ideas about what would be fun to do around Vancouver? Neither one of us is familiar with B.C. and i'd love to get out and see as much as i can. Thanks!!!!!! :P

My intervie was in montreal but I'm sure yours will be similar. Have all the items on the checklist ready. They will ask for them first. Some of mine they wanetd the copy, and others they did not.

The secdonary evidence, your extra "stuff", won't be needed until you are actually in the interview part. So, first you give them all the stuff they asked for, then you'll be asked questions etc. Mine was done separately. As long as you are organized you'll be fine.

Good Luck!

Good luck! :)

I used to live in Vancouver, but that was 10 years ago. When people would visit I would take them to Gas Town, across to North Vancouver on the ferry and down to English Bay. Vancouver is a great city just to walk around in, bring an umbrella!

Congratulations!

I live in Vancouver and one of the coolest places here is the Museum of Anthropology at UBC. Even if you are not interested in the dusty old artifacts the architecture is stunning and the totem poles and other carvings are incredible. http://www.moa.ubc.ca/ And its free on Tuesdays from 5-9!

There is a traditional Japanese garden out there too which is apparently the most authentic of its kind outside of Japan. Haven't seen it, its called the Nitobe.

If you've got a car and it isn't too cloudy it is also well worth it to drive up to the lookouts on one of the local mountains - Cypress - and check out the view.

If you like Sushi go to Tanpopo on Denman for the all you can eat lunch or dinner - excellent value, quite high quality sushi.

Good luck on your interview, I'm sure it will go great!
