We have a lot of questions... Another member has also PM'd me with his email so that i can fire questions at him.

Got to book the medicals tomorrow and find the money to pay for the Permanent Residence fees.

Any reason as to why Ontario and Quebec are the only two provinces not allowed to take wild birds?

Not 100% sure why but falconry is not as comon here as it is overseas. You should really enjoy Alberta and hope you also get time to see the rest of the country. Canada really does have very different areas from rainforest to desert. Hope the move goes well.

Cheers,

Bruce

Today I received a letter from the embassy asking me to send them the final payment for 'Permanent Residence in Canada'.

This is a dream come true for me but now the enormity of what is going to happen has just hit me and I am pooing myself!!!

I have still to sell my house (can't afford to go until that has gone) so it will be a few months yet.

However, if there are any people from Canada on here then please feel free to say hello.

My fiance and I (as well as Boomer and Asbo) will be settling in or around Calgary in Alberta.

Himiko, hopefully, I will be able to meet you at some point later on this year and see your dogs and hawks working together

what you scared of, they are only people like us! can't be any worse than here, if it's any concelation i spent a while in canada alot of years ago and by and large it was good, it will be differant but then everyone isnt the same, you'll love it, there are some laws which don't make much sence to us but again are beneficial to the structure of things and it's massive, so if youre lass does youre head in you can top her and get rid of the boddy in the wilderness, i spent my time in alberta with a few weeks in mantreall and two weels in banf in the rockies, loved every minute and if i could get a passport i would probably escape to cannada!

Alberta has a great Falconry club with good rules & regs, contact Richard Moore he is a great guy and I think he might be able to help you adjust.
