A sheer number of Americans have been considering US to Canada immigration in recent months.
Canada has been actively taking in newcomers from a range of countries. Its immigration system, in contrast to American one, is much more organized and flexible. This country offers a variety of different types of citizenship, most of which stipulate that people come for work or live there with their family.
Canadian provinces welcome business entrepreneurs as well as high-skilled workers and assign points to prospective newcomers for education, job skills and language proficiency.
People of any nationality can apply for Canadian residency. But Americans having intention to cross the borders on a temporary basis receive preferential treatment. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) facilitates US to Canada immigration for citizens who wish to work or establish Canadian business.
