Got my ITA in the last draw, and we are ecstatic! But, my wife and I are thinking of declining it because planning ahead (and we should have done this a bit ahead of time) will result in us having to move to Canada in March or April 2020. Which, may not work well for our school going daughter (in US Kindergarten). We’d hate to break her school routine mid-year, and prefer her starting new school in new school year (in September 2020). So, as much as we hate to do it, we are thinking of declining any ITAs till summer of this year.
Wanted to put this out here to see:
- Are we overthinking this/crazy?
- Were there other folks who put off accepting the ITA (but still have an active profile for getting preference during tie-breakers) to time their arrival to Canada better?
- For families with children, how did you research schools and proceed with enrollments while still outside Canada?
Appreciate any conversation/insights on this.
