Please tell us where you're living right now, and where you have lived previously if that applies. I kind of get the idea that you don't fully understand the logistics and problems of living semi-isolated in a very cold environment.
I live in Riga, Latvia.. Yea I don't know what isolation is. I could stay without internet for a couple of months if needs be..

So can't I say just "I wanna live there" and be good to go?

That is if I was from the US, not Latvia, haha. Getting from EU to US is horrific from what I hear.

I think you should wait a few more years until you've finished school and then consider what you want to do as an adult. Then ask practical questions online, because right now your questions are just a waste of time for the sake of entertainment. Do lots of research and educate yourself about the immigration regulations and climates of other countries.

It's okay to entertain your kind of fantasies for the fun of it while you're a kid as long as you understand that your fantasy isn't realisitic, it's not survivable. Canada in the winter is a deadly place and the woods in Norway in winter is probably just as deadly. If you attempted to do what you're thinking about you would just die.



In another post elsewhere the OP says he lives somewhere in Europe so immigration procedures would be required if he came to anywhere in North America.

I'm 24, I've finished school years ago. It's not one of those "I don't know what I want" things. I know what I want, I just can't get a perfect case right now, so I'm looking for a working case.

YOU won't get a visa to work in Canada. No visa, equals no work in Canada, and no way are we as a country, going to let unskilled youth come here to "live in the woods ". Canada wants productive people, not vagabonds .

Canada wants educated and skilled Immigrants. You don't appear to meet that criteria.

I write for psychology journals, I do it online. I can work from anywhere as long as I can get my hands on internet once a week, but if needs be, I can go without internet for longer.

Sorry but I'm not buying it. Educated adults who make a living writing online for psychology journals don't use or justify the use of lazy slang language when they're writing anything, not even on forums. Kids do.

In any case, if writing online for psychology journals is what you plan to do then you won't qualify to immigrate to Canada because you don't have the kinds of skills that are required of immigrants to Canada. Online journalism skills are not in demand in Canada since there are already so many established Canadian citizens who do that. It's such a common skill, I doubt there will ever be a demand for immigrants with journalism skills in the foreseeable future.

Since you already live in Europe it's probably better for you to focus on Norway which is closer and probably easier for you to qualify as an immigrant.
