Canada is a beautiful country that shares many similarities to the United States, but also many differences that are wonderful to experience. From the uniqueness of cities like Montreal, Vancouver and St. John to getting to know northern tundra and people like no other in the three Canadian territories, many Americans want to experience the Canadian way of life. As neighbours who share one the world’s longest undefended border, Canada and the United States have an ages-old positive history. It’s no wonder that Canadians immigrate to the United States and Americans immigrate to Canada on a regular and abundant basis. In fact, many people hold dual citizenship with both countries and enjoy the benefits. Plus, with the proximity of the two countries, many relationships are established across borders and require one person to change their country of residence. Others choose to come to Canada for work opportunities or to study. The number of Americans seeking to come to Canada increased dramatically in the last two years, thus applicants should make a plan long before they wish to move north.
The first consideration in coming to Canada is to determine if the move will be temporary or permanent.
