What is the list of documents one has to show at the port of entry in case of PR in Canada? Does one need travel/health insurance?
Just to add a few things regarding health insurance:As a permanent resident, you are entitled to the Government’s free healthcare which covers most healthcare servicesHowever in some provinces, there is a wait period of up to 3 months before this commences. Ontario is one such provincesIf you intend to live in one of these provinces, then in the period before the government’s healthcare coverage starts, it is advisable that you consider private health insuranceIt is not mandatory, and to the best of my knowledge, you do not have to show proof of this at the POE in CanadaRegarding proof of funds, it is good to have this. However, not everyone is asked to show this at the POE. Do not forget to disclose if you are carrying over CAD 10,000 on your person though.Another document you should have is a list of all the personal and home items that you are carrying with you, and another of all the items (if any) that will be arriving later. This is especially important if you are carrying food items.Here is the CIC checklist which we found extremely helpful when we were preparing to come to Canada.Read more on my blog at My Canadian Fling – From Lagos to Ontario with love ....

What does it mean to find out your passport has been stolen at the port of entry in a dream?
Wow, that’s a good question!When one’s passport is taken by the border authorities or officials of the visited country, it means that the local government wants to detain you - to prevent you from leaving, usually in order to settle a claim against you or charge you with a crime.If your passport is stolen by someone other than the government, their motive is usually the opposite, to escape from the country themselves, under your identity.In dreams, everything reflects YOU … some aspect of you, usually an emotion or memory that you are trying to understand, work through or reconcile.In this dream, the dreaming you (your subconscious) is trying to get, and KEEP, your complete attention. The remainder of the dream, I would guess (you don’t mention it) is something you have dreamed before and dismissed, as we mostly do upon waking.But your dream is trying to detain you, and force you to look at what is on your mind (in your subconscious) more deeply, more critically, more urgently.If it was another civilian at the Port of Entry who stole your passport, that thief is also you. It is an aspect of your persona that you subconsciously want to get out of just your dreams and break into your waking life. Perhaps it is more assertive (I would say so, based on its willingness to steal your passport!), maybe more attentive, more sensuous, more … ? Here’s where your awareness of the remainder of your dream will serve your understanding of the whole.If it was the border agent himself who seized your passport, then it is your entire subconscious that is pushing the panic button to get your attention. Something you need, something you have dreamed about, something you want, but are reluctant to admit or act upon, is screaming for you to stand up and act.The dream is not trying to keep you in dreamland, it is trying to keep your attention focused on whatever you’re dreaming about, and make you act upon that knowledge (or feeling). I have no doubt that you will have this dream again, pay close attention to the rest of the dream … that’s the insistent message of losing your passport.
