I immigrated 2 months ago. Booked Jet Airways & it had a connecting flight (Air Canada) from London. Below is the baggage allowance per person:

2 separate baggage - 23 KG each
1 Cabin luggage - 7 KG

Don't bring unnecessary crap with you. Just bring your personal belongings. You get almost everything you get in India over here for the same price or cheaper.

The climate in Canada is cold and adverse and most of us tell immigrants to bring with them nice and warm clothes, just to get started. The rest of the items are available to you here, just as in India. Not knowing where it is that they are available, it takes a few extra days or weeks to settle down very comfortably. Also the Baggage allowance and the cost of freight limits us to two suitcases weighing 23 kilos.

Everyone wants to bring in a few more items, sentimental in nature and a few, really valuable items, such as Jewelry, Paintings and Hand Carved Items. If you have the original bill or invoice, please bring it together also. They do not question you at all. I have seen a few Iranians bringing in hand knotted wall or floor carpets (RUGS) at the airport, when I go there to the Airport, occasionally to help out a friend.

So, there is no hard and fast rule that each and everyone must fill out a Goods To Follow list. But if you do have items to bring with you, then please fill out one and make them in QUADS (4 copies) and get them stamped as you enter into Canada, as it saves you a second trip to the Airport. You can declare anything and everything you want to bring with you. As an Immigrant or a settler you are permitted a lot of items. More on it if you have anything specific.

The Border Service Agency, known as CBSA are very strict but very friendly too. There are a few items that are not permitted and that is what you ought to know. They are fire arms and ammunition, Ivory items, meat and meat products and perishables. The list goes on. So, it is good to call and ask them or go to their website and get the list.

Here is a little help for you to work with and hope it is sufficient to get started.

------------------


As I check to see what is available today, I can see a few hundred locations that will be available, may not be close to where you want to start your journey here in Toronto,.but it will be a really good location and an excellent place to get started with, just to get settled here.

After the 1st of September 2015, 95% of the places will be GONE. The other 5% will provide you with a very slim selection of places as the schools and colleges will be in full swing and finding a half decent place will take tons of time and great efforts to search and locate. You being new to Canada will find it frustrating. So, be prepared to face all of the difficulties, if you are just looking for a place for a short stay of TWO weeks. If you get any place close enough to your Husband's work place, take it.. just for starters. Then move to a better place suitable to your liking and your needs.

What ever I see in the links as suitable today will be gone and newer smaller selection will appear at that time. You can select at that time, after you land, and ask us all of the questions at that time and get suitable answers to your specific queries.

Here is some help.

Please look in here and find one JUST FOR TWO WEEKS STAY. It will be well worth it.
