How To Leave The U.S. And Move To And Work In Canada

Are you upset about the results of the U.S. presidential election and want to move to another country?

Many have said they would move away with Canada as a prime location. So many, that during the US presidential election on November 8, 2016, Google inquiries on immigrating to Canada spiked to a historical all-time high while the Canadian immigration website was so overrun with traffic that it crashed.

Canada is home to a vivacious economy, opulent countryside, and a rich culture and history. It has a progressive leader, low crime, inexpensive health care and medication and familiar sports teams. To move to Canada you must have a justifiable reason for relocating.

Options include…

  • Relocating for a job you have been offered in Canada,
  • Being nominated by immediate Canadian relatives such as adult children or spouses for permanent residency,
  • Planning to start a business which will create jobs for Canadians, being an entrepreneur of high net worth,
  • Possessing a skill which can be used by a Canadian business,
  • Opening a branch office of your U.S. company in Canada.

These various factors will qualify you for different residency programs in Canada.

After choosing your reason for immigrating to Canada, you must select which province in Canada you’d like to move to and follow their specific immigration rules. Your application may automatically be rejected if you have a recent criminal history, pose a serious health risk, have financial troubles or if you are related to someone who has been banned from Canada. Immigrating to Canada is very tough on those who have recently been convicted of Driving Under the Influence of Alcohol.

One way to live and work in Canada is to enter as a skilled immigrant through a process known as express entry.

To complete the Express Entry profile online you’ll need your language test scores, educational credential assessment, work experience, and any other supplemental information needed to access you. Once you are in the Express Entry pool of skilled immigrants you will be assigned a reference code to create a job match account if you don’t already have an employment offer in Canada. You will then receive points based on the information you have provided in your application. Top scoring candidates will be invited to apply for permanent residency. You will have 60 days from the date of invitation to apply for permanent residency.

If you like living in Canada and want to become a Canadian citizen you’ll need to live in Canada for at least 4 out of 6 years.

To apply for citizenship you must be at least 18 years of age and pass a language fluency test in either English of French.

Having been a member of the Canadian Armed Forces may expedite your application.

As a final step to becoming a citizen, immigrants are required to pass a citizenship test which includes questions about the rights and freedoms of citizens, Canadian geography and history, and the structure of Canadian government.

OnlineVisas Canadian global immigration network partner, attorney Andrew Maloney states, “Canada has one of the world’s most inviting immigration legal systems and comprises a significant portion of the world’s immigration industry, just behind the UK and U.S. This is an excellent time to bring your skills or businesses to Canada.”
