Publisher Comments:

An easy-to-use, step-by-step guide to calling Canada home 

 

More and more Americans are thinking of moving to Canada to find a job, attend colleges and universities, peace of mind---even retirement---and whatever their motivations, they will have to navigate the Canadian immigration, citizenship, and naturalization processes. 

 

So whether you're thinking about moving or already have your bags packed, How to Move to Canada is for you. Its a straightforward, friendly, informative handbook that delivers on its promise, providing readers with a thorough understanding of what to expect and where to get help and more information.

 

How to Move to Canada offers:

--A realistic appreciation of what Canada has to offer Americans

--Snapshots of Canada's provinces and territories and their major cities

--Interviews with immigration experts and Americans who have emigrated to Canada

--An immigration checklist and a comprehensive list of resources to consult for more information

--Real-life, hands-on perspectives, and invaluable advice

 

How to Move to Canada makes the move north feel possible, supplying readers with a clear understanding of what theyll need in order to make a run for the border.

Review:

"Recently, 1.1 million Canadians voted Tommy Douglas, 'the Sakatchewan premier who spearheaded Canada's universal health care system' the 'Greatest Canadian' of all time. This sort of mentality is what makes Canadian emigration more and more enticing to Americans out of step with their homeland's priorities. In their easy-to-follow and comprehensive guide, Kreuzer, editor-in-chief of the Travel Arts Syndicate, and Canadian-American Bennett offer a detailed action plan for those serious about making a permanent move northward. From the color of pen to use on the application to the rules regarding moving from Hawaii with a houseplant, the volume covers details vital and otherwise, and supplies websites and phone numbers for additional information. In addition to the hows, Kreuzer and Bennett provide the whys from a Canadian perspective: apparently, skilled workers are needed, and as it currently stands 49 percent of Toronto residents were born outside Canada. Brief overviews of each province and territory help readers find where they fit best. The writers play to the presumed liberal bias of their readers and provide information to that end (abortion: legal since 1988; the death penalty: abolished in 1976; same-sex marriage: legal since 2004;the firearm homicide rate: one-eighth the U.S.'s). As a lighter and less ideological companion to this useful but narrowly targeted book, readers should check out Will and Ian Ferguson's comic work How to Be a Canadian."
