As long as it's not a .com job or something in the telecommunications industry unless it's with a big corp.(and they aren't really hiring right now), he should be okay.

Telecomm. and technology are taking a big hit right now up here, a lot of the .com's and small telecomm(Axxent, 360 Networks, etc) are going(or have gone) under. I work for AT&T Canada here in Toronto and they are doing restructuring(read: layoffs) at the moment, probably won't settle down in the technology area until spring or later.

I'm a litle lost here.(as usual) Do you mean to say that one of us Ugly American,war mongering, conspiracy nuts can just waltz accross the border, find a job and live happily ever after in Canada? (I'm not saying your friend is any of those things,Spideyfoot)Surely there are immigration laws and visa requirements to
satisfy. Fill me in here, just the basics please.
Can an American own property in Canada?
Does Canada recognize 'dual citizenship'?
Would I have to learn French? just jkin.
Any forum members made a permanent move to the frozen north?
We could all move there and ruin your nat resources and enviroment like we've done ours.

You would need a work visa until you can get citizenship, we do recognize dual-citizenship(an aunt and uncle of mine have it, at least I think they do). And yup, you can own property, the same aunt and uncle own a cottage up here.

MJ: Pretty much. Canada is a lot nicer to immigants (I knew it was them, even when it was the bears I knew it was them immigants) than the US is. My uncle is currently battling through his citizenship down in Mankato, MN. If he leaves the country to visit us, he loses all his visas. It's retarded.

Spidey: Tell your friend to get in touch with immgrations canada. They'll send him all the info he wants.

immigration is not too hard.. costs about $1500 (canadian) total by the time you finish.

Yes maryjane,

You can have dual citizenship (my wife, shes american living up here just finished hers, And I am starting on my dual citizenship also.

Americans can also own property here.. (In PEI, If you dont live here at least 6 months a year the property taxes get you hard (double).. not sure what its like elsewhere..

But US citizens living here parttime can save a small fortune to make up for it ( save reciepts--get 100% reimbursed after you leave canada on all taxes you spend on purchases)

Here is a link to Canada's job bank..just choos what province you want to look in..
