My Canadian Experience
Update


Making more progress and learning all the time. So this is what has happened through to 16th November.

I opened my Scotiabank accounts on Monday which was quite an experience as the woman that I'd made an appointment with was tied up and so I waited a fair time at the reception desk by the door of the bank.  Eventually the man at the desk decided he would try to deal with things for me.

So I got my accounts but no credit card.  Seems that if your SIN card number starts with a 9 you have not hope of getting a credit card even if you are willing to put down a deposit.  A 9 indicates you are only here temporarily so am not sure that getting a SIN card was useful from this perspective.

I purchased a mobile phone also this week so am a bit better off communications wise. The main three mobile operators are Rogers, Bell and Telus.
