Following Tuesday’s, November 8th, 2016 election, by which Donald Trump has been elected to become the 45th President of the United States, many Americans have begun to seriously contemplate how they could move to Canada, and fast.
The surprising result of the 2016 election, many who believed that rival Hillary Clinton would be the successor to Barack Obama, were shocked to learn that President-elect Trump even secured several states that were considered key battlegrounds in the electoral race, including Ohio, which has always sided with the winning candidate.
While the election votes were still being tallied, the Canadian Immigration & Citizenship Canada (www.cic.gc.ca) website crashed and remained unavailable for a major part of election night, leading many to believe that the outcome of the election has prompted an important number of Americans to research “How can I move to Canada?”
The application process for those wishing to move from the USA to Canada is not always as easy as some imagine and, in certain cases, involves a complex administrative process. However, for those American citizens who are seriously contemplating the move, here are a few of the more common examples of how a US citizen could immigrate to Canada. The following are examples of immigration programs which can be considered viable options, depending on an applicant’s individual profile:
US citizens who are eligible to apply for either temporary or permanent immigration to Canada must also ensure that their application for Canadian citizenship will not be hindered by any inadmissibility issues. Please be aware that even a single criminal offense such as driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI), could prevent entry into Canada. Such issues must therefore be addressed prior to applying for any temporary and/or permanent immigration programs available in order to enter Canada. Candidates with a criminal record or even an arrest must resolve this inadmissibility issue by applying for a temporary resident permit (TRP) or criminal rehabilitation (CR) to ensure that the immigration process does not get stalled unnecessarily due to common inadmissibility issues.
