I received my confirmation of permanent residency from the Canadian government today, with the invitation to send my passport to them in the mail to have the visa issued. It sounds like the visa will expire in January 2024 (one year after the medical date), so early next year will be the move date most likely.
Hit with so many emotions. Obviously happy and excited to be starting the next chapter, but also very sad and angry it came to this.
Bike and walking friendly city. Skating on the Rideau canal. Gatineau mountains right there for skiing. Walkable and beautiful.downtown. a whole week of ice sculptures.wilderness at your doorstep.a variety of galleries. Canada day on parliament hill. St Lawrence river within driving distance as is Montreal.
It’s gonna be great!
Oh, and the Scotiabank marathon in may is huge. You might even see me there some may. I’m at the back.
Got some surprising news last week when at the game convention.
My facial surgeon had a cancellation, so instead of November 22 for my surgery date, it might be Wednesday. As in two days from now. The last obvious hurdle was getting insurance clearance, which came in today, so it’s pretty likely at this point.
:tup: That is a hell of a big change of date.
Well, it fell apart at the last possible minute. Looking like July now due to other movements/cancellations.
Bummer, but July is still way better than November.
In some good news, I’ll be a speaker at the Insure Equality summit in September in Chicago talking about trans rights and inclusion in the insurance industry. If you are interesting in going, DM me and I can give out a discount code. (Or I can post if it the mods are ok with that here)
