Canada welcomes (even encourages) Americans to consider becoming a Permanent or Temporary Resident of Canada.
Many Americans are able to qualify for a Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visa under the economic stream of immigration– either the Skilled Worker Category or the Business Category of Canadian immigration.
A Canadian Permanent Resident may become a Canadian Citizen and receive a Canadian Passport after three years. Canadian citizenship is voluntary and you would not have to relinquish your U.S. citizenship, if you do not wish to. Both Canada and the United States permit dual citizenship.
Americans who wish to enter Canada on a temporary basis also receive preferential treatment. The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) facilitates the entry of Americans who wish to come to Canada to work or to establish/acquire a Canadian business.
