Don't worry, if you marry your girlfriend they can't deport you because if you marry a Canadian citizen you become one.
Good Luck.

Absolutely dead wrong. Marrying a Canadian citizen does not result in citizenship.

If you marry a Canadian citizen in Canada, you have the option of applying for Permanent Resident's status from within Canada. You must maintain a legal status in Canada while your application for PR status is considered. That means you'll need to to have a valid student visa, visitor visa, etc. If you allow your visa to lapse, your PR status application will be rejected.

Please see the Citizenship and Immigration Canada web site for details:

Default Help in canada

I am a canadian permanent resident for 9 years now, when my father applied for citizenship i was turning 18 my application was denied as i have to now file as an adult........

My question is i am now engaged to my longtime sweetheart with whom we've known each other as childhood friends in our home country of trinidad at around 14 i came to canada to live with my dad due to my moms passing, and my fiance moved to florida for a better life with her dad so we lost contact about 8 years, she moved on had a son, i never thought i would see her again i had a daughter as well........

We are now engaged and have been for a year..... We see each other every month or 2 months at the most its hard i am in the process of filing my citizenship and she as well. She wants to move to canada would it be better to get our papers in first seperately get married then file for her to come to canada or get married with our current status and then apply for her pr, also how long would the process take, and since she is currently a green card holder would she lose her us status if she was to apply for canadian residence????her son is a us citizen so she wants to keep her us status, and apply for us citizenship.

Any help will be greatly appreciated

thanking you in advance.

Using a lawyer doesn't make things go any quicker, so if you can fill out forms by yourself you may as well save some money.

It sounds like you have 2 problems.

First, you live in the US, but may have to leave because you won't have legal status.

Second, you want to know how quickly Permanent Resident applications are processed.

Citizenship and Immigration Canada has an estimated processin g tme on their web site: Welcome Page | Page d'accueil


If all your forms are correctly filed and there are no problems with your application or supporting documentation, you can count on the wait being anywhere from 12-24 months.

Please keep in mind that if you are found in Canada illegally while you have a PR application pending, the application will likely be rejected and you may not be permitted to apply again.

Huh? In another thread you are asking about immigrating to Canada; in this one you are providing (erroneous) advise.

You best need to contact Canada Immigration about your situation or an immigration attorney; cornerguy also provides astute advise. If you intend to migrate to Canada in the near future, best not to do it with a big blemish (illegal) on your record as it may impact your chances.
