Permanent Residency Achieved! October 2010. I am pleased to announce that, upon my return through the Kelowna International Airport Immigration last week, I received my permanent residency in Canada! This process has taken three years to come to fruition beginning August 11, 2007 when I received my temporary foreign worker permit. Thus began Mark’s and my journey north of the 49th Parallel and embarking on a whole new learning experience including, but not limited to, cultural differences, (new spellings of the English language), restoration of a six acre farm and orchard, a new geography with whole new points of reference. I am delighted and honoured to be welcomed into Canada to continue my work with Ballet Kelowna. Mark arrives later this week to complete the process. Much thanks goes to the Central Okanagan Immigration Specialist Woody Cross who helped guide me and the organization through the process over these past years. My thank you testimonial is included on their website. Needless to say, I have much to be thankful for this Canadian Thanksgiving Holiday. Thanks to all of you for your continued friendship and your support during this time.
In gratitude, Alison
