III'm almost a Canadian permanent resident! After months of waiting and piles of paperwork, the process is almost complete. Today I should be receiving my passport back from immigration with my permanent residency visa inserted into my passport. What does this mean? It means I can finally get a job! I have been teaching part time at a university here, but having my permanent residency allows me to get a job anywhere. I am excited and nervous. It's been a long time since I have worked and I am not looking forward to the interviewing process, but it will be nice to meet some more people and to have a little extra cash. I will keep you posted. Fedex is suppose to be delivering my passport by 5 p.m. today!
