Hello,

I want to move to Canada and work there. I already have a job lined up.

I want to keep my US citizenship.

What type of paperwork do I have to fill out. Is the process long, has anyone had experience with this?

Thanks

The answers depend on whether you want to just move to Canada temporarily to work, or if you want to move to Canada on a permanent basis.

Either way, the technical details are available at Welcome Page | Page d'accueil

What does "move to canada temporarily to work mean?"

I dont want canadian citizenship, does that answer the question. Are there types of "permanent" moves?

People sometimes come to Canada on a temporary basis just to work -- when their employment is over they return to their country of citizenship.

Other choose to immigrate to Canada on a permanent basis through Citizenship and Immigration Canada's Skilled Worker program.

Two different motives and two different sets of immigration criteria to meet.

For what it's worth you don't give up your US citizenship to become a Canadian citizen. You would have dual citizenship if you chose to pursue Canadian citizenship.

But you don't have to become a citizen to work in Canada.

Think of it like getting a Green Card in the States or a work permit -- you stay but you do not become a citizen.

I am a citizen of both Canada and the US but you can just live in either place on a work permit if need be.
