I don't know what's involved in moving up there, but I'm wondering if there are automatic rule-outs as to who could not come up there.

I know you want certain skills (that I lack) or a certain amount of money to be self-sufficient, but I'm not sure what the dollar amount is. Last time I checked the site I think it said around 400K?

At any rate, how does one get into your country? Thanks.

Hi, I can't really tell you as I am not qualified to say. Research on the net at Canadian Gov. sites. I have a young American neighbor from Boston who is working here that lives in my building. Another American from Boston moving in as well any day now. My friend owns a building and their are a whole bunch of fellows from Mexico who don't even speak English or French. We are going to receive 48,000 immigrants this year! The door is open. lol

No, you don't need $400k. More like maybe $12k, I think. And education, and various skills to be employable, etc. Good or at least decent health. It helps if you are under age 49. The $12k you bring along is to make sure you can support yourself until you are well-employed. Getting a job offer in Canada prior to moving helps a lot. Check out the Canadian Immigration website (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/index.asp) for more information. I've been doing some homework on this myself.
