Default Hey - Moving To Canada

Hey everyone, figured I would introduce myself here. I'm "new" here in the sense I've only just registered, but I've been moping around in the background looking at all the posts in the Canada section for a good year or so.

Looking to move to Canada hopefully in a year or two. The one big advantage I have is my grandfather was born in Canada, so I actually have Canadian citizenship. So in terms of work permits and residency.....no problems there as I don't need them!!

Only problem is getting myself across soon and seeing how things go. Hopefully looking to go to Alberta, Calgary. Was there in September last year and really enjoyed it. Let's see what happens

Hey there...welcome aboard.

Thank you for taking the time to introduce yourself...I'm pleased you've decided to join us.

Having Canadian citizenship is certainly a huge advantage. You no doubt have already found your way into our Canada Forums....why not pop over there and introduce yourself?

If you have any problems finding your way around the many BE forums AmyDavid and The Aviator are concierges for the Canada forums.

For any other problems please contact a moderator. The mods for the Canada forums are Iaink and Christmasoompa.

Please give me a shout if you need any help...once again welcome.

Hey Nelson.

Welcome to BE.

We've got a great Canada forum and I'm sure you will enjoy getting to know the other members and picking up some tips on moving and stuff. All the members are really great at sharing info and experiences. We've also got a wonderful wiki that members have contributed to so if you have time check it out.

Err, where was your parent whose father was Canadian born?

If it wasn't in Canada you might have an issue.

I suggest you post details in the Immigration sub-forum of the Canada bit.

I don't imagine there would be any problem. It was my grandfather who was born in Canada, and I already hold a Canadian passport that confirms me as a Canadian citizen (and I've had it a couple of years or so) so I don't see any problem there.

"Congratulations and good luck"

You are right, if you hold a Canadian passport, then no problem with all you have said.

I am now legible and applying for my Canadian citizenship, been here 4 yrs and had permanent residency the past 3. All good
