Nope, I am not giving a lesson about the parts of speech or other grammar lessons in this post, I will share with you some words, slang and phrases that are commonly used by Canadians. That is true, Canadians have their own take on everyday words. Here in Canada, we drink double-double coffee, eat poutine and drink pop, we wear toque, we write an exam, go to the washroom and we know that the last letter of the alphabet is “zed,” very Canuck, eh?

I didn’t have the time to blog for a month,  but responding to  comments and emails that I received kept me going… Today, I thought that it maybe interesting to come out with a post that will describe the preparation that my family made prior to our landing to the City of Peg (Manitoba).

“I swear that I will be faithful and bear true allegiance to her Majesty Queen Elizabeth the Second, Queen of Canada, her heirs and successors, and that I will faithfully observe the laws of Canada and fulfill my duties as a Canadian citizen.”

I was going through some of the stuff in my small office at home when I saw the Discover Canada booklet that Citizen Immigration Canada (CIC) has sent to me together with the letter of acknowledgment that we received in March 2013.

Two years ago, I submitted our family’s application for Canadian Citizenship.  I purposely submitted our application as soon as we have met the eligibility requirements thinking that once we hit our fifth year in Canada, my family and I are already citizens of Canada and we won’t need to renew our Permanent Resident (PR)  card.

I am one of the many Canadian immigrants who have been trying to bring my parents to Canada as permanent resident. I first submitted my sponsorship immigration in 2011 (if my memory serves me right), up to this date, my application has not moved forward, I still remained to be a sponsorship applicant.
