Doesnt work that way, i gave you a link to those who do know how it works,here it is again=Citizenship and Immigration Canada
Trying to cross the border with no documentation with the idea you will just get a job will assure you will be denied entry at the border,which will then be attached to your file and will be something that will be scrutinized and need to be explained every time you cross the border in the future.
Also you dont actually need a job to immigrate although it does help,what you need is a marketable skill set that will impress the immigration authorities that you wont have trouble getting a job if they approve your immigration.

OP, if you have 4 years of college, why are you not applying for decent jobs via a resume as opposed to crappy jobs that you need to apply in person for? If you get a job offer, then you can get "sponsored".

As for entering Canada, you will need to state your reason at the border. If you tell the truth, that you're coming to look for a job, then you're going to be turned back if you don't have the required paperwork. If you lie and say you're coming for a vacation, they might let you in. However, if Canadian immigration finds out you lied, you may kiss you're chances for immigrating to Canada goodbye.

Compared to getting into the US as an immigrant, immigrating to Canada is much, much easier. I know a couple of people who have done it. So, just suck it up, and jump through the hoops. It's your first step in becoming a good Canadian ...

Not having a college degree is not necessarily a barrier to immigrate to Canada, if you have some particular skill set or a particular background a company can sponsor you for a temporary visa and then permanent residence...is not as difficult as it may appear on paper but you have to do your homework.

I personally know if several cases of people with no degree that were able to get sponsorship and some of them rather quickly....for example, as far as i know up to couple of years ago if you were very good tiler especially capable to work with marble you could write your own ticket.


A very recent case, a girl from Italy got hired by a high end clothing store in Vancouver because of her experience in the field back home, especially dealing with purchasing merchandise from manufacturers and wholesalers (she basically knows how to work as a buyer in the clothing industry) and actually I'm not even sure she finished her high school diploma in Italy!!

If all you know is making coffee at Starbucks or working in low level retail, in that case yes is next to impossible....

okay I understand...but what about if an employer likes me and wants to help me become a citizen? couldnt they just help me out then? btw I would not work in a starbucks or coffee setting, because you have to be slightly insane. But I could do a clothing store, grocery store, maybe some bar work... maybe an employer will be willing to help out?

^^ They would have to prove they made every attempt to hire a Canadian first, for that kind of work.

Folks, lets quietly fold this thread. The OP has shown that he is incapable of accepting the truth, that has been written here by the most experienced members of the Canadian forum. He still thinks that he knows better than the 10 regular contributors that have taken the time to TRY to inform him.

Sometimes you can't get through to some people.
