  1. Just to let you know, I have received discounts at restaurants on several occasions using my Canadian Visa credit card. The banks seem to run special discount programs with some regularity to encourage use of their products and seem to extend it to affiliated cards.

  2. Thanks. This has been a question for me.

  3. I’ve seen elsewhere that a reference from your home country’s bank is needed. What is that exactly?

    • Hi JM,

      A reference from your home country’s bank is a letter stating that you are in fact a customer, how long you’ve been a customer, what types of accounts you have and confirmation that those accounts are in good standing.

      Let us know if you have any other questions.

      Cheers,
      Elisha

  4. Do these letters of reference have to be in Spanish?

  5. Hi Gord and Elisha,

    Question: Your list includes the item: “Copy of your beneficiary’s passport”. Who would the beneficiary be?

    Thanks.

    • Hi Claire

      Your beneficiary is the person you would like to leave the heaps of cash in your bank account to if you died. I suggest Gordon MacKay, but you may have someone closer to you.

      Cheers,
      Gordon

  6. Why didn’t you get your permanent residents after 4 years?

  7. Thank you for sharing this! Answered my question 🙂
