Thread: Immigrate to Canada

  1. #1
    I have a question, if u are deported from USA, can u immigrate to Canada? Do they check with the states your criminal record when reviewing your application? If anyone knows please reply....

    Of course you can. Canada doesn't care about your previous status in the US. They have their own immigration laws and system. In fact, they are more tolerant than the US. The only problem is if you're still currently in the US. You cannot apply within the US if you're out of status and must return to your home country. If you've already left the US and are now back home, by all means you can apply.

    Canada has very vigorous Immigration System - they check everyone's background , criminal as well as security.
    Only difference is that it takes about 6 months max. for Canadians complete what may take 20 years in US.
    That's all.

    As to your immigration status in US, I don't think it can be of direct negative consequence - it is not a criminal record.
    Especially if you immigrate on family based petition.
    However, if you want to immigrate as skilled worker, you better had held professional jobs in US with traceable record of your employment or else you may not be able to score enough points.


    Good luck,

    AF, I recognize good comments and opinions if I see one. For that, I can say you're correct. However, the US also checks on an applicant's background strictly especially after 9/11. So, the US and Canada are the same in this aspect.

    US and Canada are both checking on applicant's background, and I assure you Canadians do it no less strictly than US.
    The only difference is that it takes Canadians 6 months at most, whereas it may take 20 years in US.

    Are you saying it takes 20 years to get a US visa compared to Canada's six years?

  7. #7
    I mean...six months in Canada and 20 years in the US? You must be referring to family sponsorship which is partly true.

    AF, wake up I got a couple of questions for you. I'm surprised you're also familiar with Canada's immigration laws. Why and how? Also, you've been vigorously defending Israel and the Jews. Are you a Jew? I mean no harm in asking if you were a Jew. If you are, I can understand your passion in siding with Israel.

    okay this is the situation, my fiance was deported frmom US, so, we want to immigrate to Canada, although it is not US its a million times better to imigrate to Canada than to his country. But, He does have a criminal record here...so I was wondering if we want to immigrate to canada will they check his criminal record in the states....or he can just apply from his home country and make no mention of the incidents in US. I am a nurse, and I am a US citizen, if I apply for Permanent Residence in Canada, will I loose my citizenship? I read some where in another disscussion that the only way you can loose ur US citizenship is if u establish LPR in another country and I dont wanna loose my citizenship...so thats another question I would like you guys to answer. Anyhow, I was thinking of applying and including him in my application....can that be done?
