After living in Canada for seven years, we finally filed for our permanent residence! It’s been a long time coming, and a hassle for the past couple of weeks, but Wes finished our papers this morning and we went together to the post office right after lunch to mail them. We ended up with a packet about an inch thick. We filed under a new program which is expedited for those who have worked or studied in Canada for at least two years. This filing class shortens the processing time by about half. We should have our permanent residence within the next year!
