Full House: We were to leave on the 12th Aug for two weeks, for a short break. It was planned and organized since April. Lucky for me we could not divide and re-group till now. So there are now two groups and I am still going, but with the second group on the 19th Aug. Lv on the 20th Aug, early morning from TO. I will not miss the meet.
hchheda: FH.. I am sure a lot of CD are waiting to meet you. It will be a privilege to have you join us... though I understand the drive is too far for you. Hopefully you can coordinate with Blue peafowl and get a ride... Please land inside the picnic fence :cheers: Hiren

Parent Sponsorship (Medical)

Many: They approve even if there are medical problems ( tubercolosis for example). They ask the person to undergo medical treatment and submit confirmation thereto. So there is some delay but case gets approved.
Full House: Doctors don't want to break up the family. He will pass the Medicals. So, Hang in there. You only cross the bridge when you come to it. FH. I hope that they did not find anything serious. -
callingcard: Hello, Medical check up of my parent has been completed. Parents happened to be in Canada. After initial screening, CIC requested specialist report for father only. Father is principal applicant. If medical does not approve for father, does it mean that mother's file is not approved? Is there any provision to challenge CIC on medical ground if they don't approve?


rajcanada: Everyone is entitled to an opinion and this woman is too. It is probably not right for this woman to go confronting desi woman about how they dress but still I would not suggest escalating to police unless it becomes a serious issue like this woman confronting your wife again or she threatens your wife or your wife's friends.
vagg: Thanks hchheda, I replied to your PM.
vagg: I hope it stays that way but considering (you know what I am referring to) day is not far when we'll have Europe like problems as someone mentioned before.
Fido: All said and done we should be proud and happy that Canada is still a land of freedom and law. There s no harm in reporting this to the Police / media in writing. You can also ask the other 2 ladies if they wish to join in as well and the store keeper can also be mentioned to keep record of happenings.
indiarocks: This really comes as no surprise. The demography of this country is changing and changing fast. Every time you step out you see it for yourself. Go to an area you used to frequent before but have not in a while and you will seem like an outsider. This does not look like the Canada of even 10 years ago.


reddevil: Thats great So no hasel of IELTS general preparation
Full House: Here is a small break for you. It is in the upgrading of the language skills. Government of Canada, Immigration Department says that if you have got through and Graduated with your ONE YEAR Course, They will recognize it as if you fully hold the skills required in the Language course. Which makes you exempt now. Now you can heave a sigh of relief. Good Luck, FH.
Gurram: I don't know much about your back ground to advise ... but if you are a foreign graduate, with atleast one year foreign experience, has a canadian diploma, acquired one year Canadian experience ( your job title shoudl fall into skilss sets of O, A, B levels) and has good IELTS score you will be in the game under express entry and can get the invitation. You have only one year work permit.

myjughead: Paying for a child's post-secondary education is a great investment in your child?s future as Canadian tuition fees and other related education related expenses continue to climb. As a result, it is becoming more difficult for many Canadian families to fund the cost of post-secondary education, especially if there is more than one child. So Ottawa jumped in with a savings plan called Registered Education Savings Plan - RESP, to encourage parents to save money for their kid's post-secondary education. What is RESP? A RESP is a education savings account registered with Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), where an individual (subscriber) can save money for a student (beneficiary) and government pitches in by providing monetary grants (CESG, Additional CESG, CLB) and allow the money to grow TAX FREE until withdrawn to fund post-secondary education of the chosen beneficiary. When funds are withdrawn from RESP to fund the post-secondary education, it gets taxed at the hands of student, which is next to negligible.

Aloo Gobhi

bdfseo1: Hello Are you really craving for some desi aloo gobhi? Yes here is a recipe for you of aloo gobhi so that you can prepare it anytime at home easily. Ingredients: 3 medium potatoes 1/2 a Cauliflower 1/2 medium onion, minced 4 medium sized tomatoes, segmented (or a 400gm can of diced tomatoes) 2cm ginger, grated 1 tsp garlic, minced Small bunch of fresh coriander 1 fresh Cayenne chilli (optional) 2 tsp ground coriander 1 tsp chilli powder (or smoked paprika, if you prefer it milder) 1 tsp turmeric 6 peppercorns 3 cloves 2 bay leaves 1 tsp cumin 1/2 tsp salt (to taste) 4 tbs oil for cooking Method: Start by cutting your potatoes and cauliflower. I like to cut my potatoes on sharp angles, rather than uniform cubes. What you want to get a large surface area on the potato, but make sure they're about 1/2 the size of your cauliflower florets, the reason being that your cauli will cook faster than your potatoes, so keep the potatoes smaller than your cauli.

Desi Delicious!

bdfseo1: Hello Dear this one of my favorite dish ever. Even the smell Palak Paneer makes my mouth water :cheers: You can try now: Ingredients: 250gms of Paneer, cut into 1 inch cubes 1 medium tomato, chopped Half an onion, chopped 500gms spinach (I'm using frozen spinach because it's out of season at the moment, but fresh also works) 1cm knob of ginger, grated 1 dried chilli (or more, to taste) 4 cloves of garlic, crushed 2 tsps ground coriander 2 tsps ground cumin A splash of cream (optional) Ghee/oil for cooking 1 cup of water Direction: Start by cutting your paneer into cubes (if it's not already cut). Shop bought paneer is fine, but making your own gives a much richer flavour, in my mind. Warm your knife under hot water to make the paneer easier to cut. Fry your paneer on all sides in a little oil/ghee.

Canada Post headed for a strike

rajcanada: Canada Post says they have made their final offer. Union says it is an "insult." When you are in a union in a crown corporation, you can argue about defined contribution vs fixed payout pension plan while in private sector you have neither! Anyway mail is in the decline but compensated by increase in parcels from online shopping. Parcels is a competitive market though with many private players in the field. Liberals move of stopping further installation of community mailboxes is further going to add to the costs of the corporation. LINK
