Congrats. I have almost identical timeline, taking 20 months exactly. I keep opening the passport everyday to oggle the visa, just to make sure it´s not all a dream.

I got mine and my wives today. Very excited but only got 3 months to enter Canada. My papers say Calgary as port of entry. Do I absolutely have to enter through Calgary or can I enter through some other province? Also I have friends and family in Toronto but no one in Calgary and not sure how I should arrange for a local address to receive my PR card.

Also any idea on how long it takes to receive PR card?
