A message to the Citizens of the United States

Canada welcomes applications from American Citizens seeking to immigrate to Canada. There are many ways to immigrate to Canada from the United States or to reside in Canada on a temporary basis

Canada and the United States have long collaborated as continental partners in the world’s most prosperous region. The North America region has a combined population of around 330 million and an economy that represents more than one-quarter of the world’s GDP. The two countries are amongst each other’s largest trading partners and sources of foreign direct investment. Both countries share an abundance in natural resources supported by integrated continental energy markets to drive important economic prosperity and security benefits for Canadian and American citizens.

The United States and Canada share a long and varied history and both nations were developed by immigrant communities. Every year, thousands of American citizens make the decision to move to Canada. Some are attracted by economic opportunity, others are sponsored by a spouse or partner, while many other Americans come to work or study in Canada on a temporary basis. Indeed, some are enticed by more than one of these factors, or other considerations.

Canada welcomes immigration applications from Citizen of the United States.

Many Americans may be eligible to qualify for a Permanent Resident Visa through one of economic immigration streams including the Skilled worker or business category.

After fours years of becoming a Canadian Permanent Resident, you can apply to become a Canadian Citizen, receive a Canadian Passport and have the right to vote. Canadian citizenship is voluntary of course and you would not have to relinquish your U.S. citizenship, if you do not wish to.

Both Canada and the United States allow dual citizenship.

Americans who wish to enter Canada on a temporary basis also receive preferential treatment. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) allows entry for Americans seeking to work or start a business in Canada.
