|My Welcome Packet|
I can now officially say that I am a Permanent Resident of Canada. I officially reside in another country. I am no longer just a visitor. After a very long, four year process, I am finally official. And it is a wild feeling.
Wednesday, October 19th, 2011, it became official. And, I will never ever have to go through this process again. I honestly feel as though a weight has been lifted from my shoulders. No more dealing with expiring visas and the hassle to update them. No more nervousness as you cross the border into and out of the country. No more limbo. No more wondering. It's complete and I am finally a Permanent Resident.
I am able to work, to have access to the free health care system, to mingle, mix and be. I just can't vote. But that's a-ok for me. I'm a Permanent Resident and I am so HAPPY!!!!!
