  • Canadian and American wish to be together in Canada

    Hey all,

    I am a Canadian, my boyfriend is American. We wish to live together in Canada, and eventually marry. Marriage is neither here nor there in regards to the immigration process, I would prefer to wait and do it on our own terms and time, but also understand it is a better guaranteed way to guarantee his approval, though I think right now it is not, as I am a student getting funding for school and I believe this makes it so I do not qualify as a sponsor at the moment.

    Basically, what I want to know is this: would it be easier (ie. less hassle, less confusing, less risk of mess up and getting visiting rights to each others countries revoked etc) for him to get a work permit and apply for permanent residence status after getting the 2 years work experience in a skill type 0, A or B job, OR to somehow marry then proceed with spousal sponsorship (likely have to be when I am done school)?

    Thanks folks! =3

    You need to be asking a Canadian law forum.

      Here's a Canadian law forum sometimes given out -

      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

        Figured since it seemed the most willing to help forum I've found, and there were several other threads about Canadian and Americans marrying and living in Canada that had been answered that people would be willing to help..

        Thanks for the link Betty3
