What can I have delivered in India to a household where a funeral is happening? Is it white flowers there too? I don’t know if they will want a bunch of fruit. What is the custom?

Usually the custom is to visit the immediate family .no gifts or flowers.. but if you don’t know the culture, live far away and aren’t close to the said household- an email message may suffice or a phone call if you know the family

Hello fellow desi consultants,
I am currently working for Deloitte USA. I got a transfer offer to Deloitte Canada office. I have 2.5 years work experience and a bachelors degree. When i was calculating my CSR score for express entry it came to be around 418, assuming I’ll score the highest band in IELTS. Does anyone know if Deloitte Canada does LMIA for transfer hires like me? I am not sure if having a job offer helps unless the company files for LMIA.
