I have noticed there is little information about Canadian Aboriginal peoples and the provisions of the Jay Treaty on this forum. Article three within the treaty explains Native Indians born in Canada are entitled to enter the United States for the purpose of employment, study, retirement, investing, and/or immigration.

As a "Native Indian born in Canada" I am given this extraordinary opportunity. I was wondering if anyone could shed light on the process.

I am aware that I would have to provide the border crossing with evidence of my ethnicity; however, I was wondering about the whole process. Do I need to cross the border and reside in the US? Am I able to apply for jobs BEFORE moving to the US with the assumption I'll be able to work?

I'm particular curious because I wanted to know if there was a process in which I could just go to the border crossing, complete all the paper work and stay within Canada until the green card is processed. I'm not fluent on procedures, for all I know it may be a requirement to reside in the US while any persons is processing documents for a green card.

Hopefully I've explained clearly (and evidently very naively) what I'm seeking.

This seems legal and technical, I'd be cautious about advice I got over the transom. You could get unintentionally steered astray. You probably ought to talk to either an attorney or an experienced advocacy group.
