Our Moving to Canada Medical Experience at St. Luke’s Global City

Among all things we needed to do before moving to Canada, this has to be the one that we were most nervous about.

Wow, didn't realize that it's been six months since the blog was last updated. The main reason for the lack of updates is well.... the lack of updates from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)! Haha. 😐 As of the last draw (August 24, 2016), one needed at least 538 points to get an Invitation… Continue reading When You Least Expect it (Moving to Canada Update!)
