Can you get dual citizenship with Canada and the US?
How do you go about becoming a Canadian citizen (and giving up your US citizenship if you have to)
How long does the process take?
What is it like to live in Canada? i.e. laws, health insurance, work, etc.....
How difficult is moving between Canada and the US?
thanks so much!
I'm American - sorry you can't give up US Citizenship. I also have Canadian citizenship after living and working here for 5 years.
The wait times are different depending on what type of applicant you are; business, family etc
The fastest way is business but you have to have some $$ upfront (around $300K); if you work for a multinational you can ask for a transfer (that's how I live in Montreal) and get temporary residency awaiting full citizenship.
Moving is a breeze but depending on where you live you can experience culture shock
