  • Canadian wants to marry American, and Stay in Canada

    Hello

    I've known an American woman for about 5 years now, we frequently talk on the phone, exchange emails, and chat on MSN, and we love each other very much.

    I'm a Canadian born citizen, in Ontario, and we want to get married and live in Ontario, as soon as possible.

    I've tried reading the CIC.gc.ca website for this specific situation but i cant seem to find it. I've read that some cases take upwards to a year or more, and honestly, we've been talking for years already, and we really don't want to wait another year before being together.

    What is the quickest way for us to legally be together in Canada? I dont want to cut corners ether, because im worried it will come and bite us later.

    I heard its much easier to immigrate to canada than america but dont have the particulars. Best to get a book on it down at the bookstore. I am guessing that it will be real real easy since your getting married and she if from america if she is an american citizen. If not talk to the lawyer.

      Rather than a book that can be misinterpreted (or even wrong) I would recommend talking to the Canadian consulate in the city where the American lives.
      The above answer, whatever it is, assumes that no legally binding and enforceable contract or CBA says otherwise. If it does, then the terms of the contract or CBA apply.

        Partly a good idea. She should probably call an immigration dept in canada since thats where she will be going.

          Brant, since you haven't been here long, you wouldn't be aware of the fact that I am a dual citizen; Canadian and American, born in Canada. I know what I'm talking about.

              I knew it.
              Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. Leo Buscaglia
