Canadian citizenship - a dream comes true
Well, a person can become a Canadian citizen by being born in Canada, or in some cases, by being born outside Canada to a Canadian parent. Or, as in the case of permanent residents a person could apply to become a Canadian citizen.
To apply for Canadian citizenship an applicant must
♦ be at least 18 years, or a minor child of a citizen or applicant for citizenship
♦ be a permanent resident
♦ have lived in Canada for three of four years immediately before applying for citizenship
♦ have a knowledge of English or French
♦ have knowledge of Canada, and the responsibilities and privileges of citizenship
♦ not be prohibited from being granted citizenship because of criminal prohibitions, because they are under a deportation order or because they represent a security problem
The Citizenship Act allows the Minister for Citizenship and Immigration under certain circumstances to waive the requirement of language, knowledge, or taking the oath.
The application itself has to be mailed to CPC Sydney and must be accompanied by a processing fee of $100 plus in most cases a Right To Citizenship fee of additional $100.00 for adults. CPC reviews the application for its proper completion including all necessary information, and if the processing fee has been paid. If everything is in order the applicant will receive a confirmation letter that the application has been received. This confirmation letter is accompanied by a copy of 'A Look at Canada', a guide on which the written Citizenship is based on.
At the same time CPC will forward the application to the RCMP and the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service (CSIS) for a background check. The background check includes a check for a criminal record, security record and immigration record. Finally CPC prepares a certificate package and sends it to the CIC office nearest the applicant's address. The CIC office sets a date for the Citizenship test and sends an invitation to the applicant.

Reasons Why Immigrants Are Vying for Canadian Working Visas
There are many reasons to learn how to migrate to Canada from USA.
There are plenty of work opportunities and places to study in Canada. Many of the provinces in Canada offer no language barrier because English is the primary language. The predominant language in Quebec is French and many US residents in Canada can use their French skills to get by in that region. Traveling to Canada from the states is simple since the countries are connected by both bridges and land. Canada is quite similar to the US so there would not be much of a cultural shock, either. Due to immigration, Toronto is one of the most multicultural cities in the whole world.
There are many different ways in which you could migrate to Canada from the United States. Below is a simple list which will be further explained.
-Locate family and friends in the area
The easiest way to immigrate to Canada is to choose a school or university and study in the country. Canada has customs that make it easy for people who live in the US to study at Canadian schools. Canada has some of the top schools in the entire world so many students would benefit greatly from studying there. You might want to apply to Ryerson University in downtown Toronto. This school has a campus that attracts people from all over the world, especially from the states. Once you have been accepted into a school or university to study, you can then apply for a temporary visa. That way, you will be able to move between Canada and the US during the time you are in school. You will also have to have a passport and it is best to have a clean past as far as criminal records are concerned. If you have finished your studies, or are not looking to become a student, there are plenty of other ways in which you could migrate to Canada from the US.
Locate Family and Friends
If you already have family members in Canada, or even a set of friends, you can ask them to vouch for you. If they have been permanent residents for awhile, this can make the immigration process easier on you.
If you want to invest some of your money in a bank or business in Canada, this can help you immigrate to the country as well. The amount you will need to invest depends on when you apply so it is best to check into what the demands are when you want to make the investment.
If you have a successful business in the US, you might want to try expanding it across the border. You can then apply for residence much more easily.
