I moved back here from the US in 2002, my husband moved in 2007.


We have resided here ever since. I am a Canadian Citizen, and my husband has legal landed immigrant status.


I came up to care for my mother after she lost her eye and when she passed 5 years later my husband moved up.


We planned on renovating our house in the US to sell it, but in the mean time my brother was going through a divorce and decided he would live there.


The renovations were started while he was there and he oversaw everything. Three years ago he moved on with his life so we put the house up for sale, and it has taken us till this summer to sell it.


Now we need to bring back our belongings to Ottawa, all personal , but very little furniture.


We are going back next week to pack up and I need to know what papers are required to bring everything across the border other than the papers given to us by the international movers.

We will return to Ottawa.


Please get back to me regarding this matter.


Thank you so much for your help
