What does it take to move from the US to Canada? I'm serious. My plan is to go up there first, make a living and bring the family over a year later. If that's possible. I guess the first step would be to find a company to work for. I know people that work in the refineries in Edmonton. I also applied for a railroad position in Edmonton. I hear you have to be debt free before even considering it. Is that true?

I've considered this in the past but never took the notion seriously. I'm now beginning to research this. I thought I'd feel out the forum to see if anyone made the move and had some tips.

I'd be screwed if it took 20k. I've been out of work for 2 years after an impressive 25 year work history. I can't even get job picking up trash in a Home Depot parking lot. I've lost everything. The home is all I have left and they are taking that soon.

Well if you are comming over, you are more than welcome. For that you will get a better educational system, free health care, friendly people and a whole lot of hot chick.
But don't think for an instant that our Canadian govenment is not as corrupt as yours. Ours is just as bad. The only difference is our government doesn't have as much impact on the world as yours does. But as a people i think we are pretty much one of the same. So bring your family and friends. Aunts ,uncles and cousins and we'll have our selves a blast.

Canada is amazing and Il never leave! Yes good weed is a plus... but im not 100% sure on EXACLY what it would take to move.. obviously money would be number 1. debt free? wouldnt be suprised if you needed to be debt free. One thing i do know is your more than welcome


Cold? is that all everyone has to b$#%^h about... its cold.. yes .. get over it.. but im in Windsor which is the most southern part of Canada (right across from Detroit) and we had warm wether up until mid november and our summers here are very hot and very humid . just had our first snow fall last week. Edmonton ...now that has sh%$y winters.

How old are you and what do you do for a living as of right now?

Good question.

I can no longer, in good conscience, continue to support this corrupt system. If Americans refuse to stand up and fight to preserve it, then let them suffer the consequences of their own inaction. I want no part of it. We are being forced to do things against our own best interests. It makes no sense at all.

In short, it's an idealogical decision but one I feel strongly about. I want to invest in a community that values my contributions. Is it greener on the other side? Not sure. But I'm willing to give it a try. It only seems to be getting worse for me in my current position. Moving to another state or city won't help relieve the disgust brewing inside of me.

@machines4200 - I'm 44. I spent 15 years as a skilled labor mill rat here in the Indiana Harbor Belt. Born and raised in a proud steel mill family. In '02, I switched careers and spent almost a decade in IT. I'm a mutli-skilled professional. Very versatile with both blue and white collar experience.

That's what my brother did. He says leaving the US was the best thing he ever did. We haven;t kept in close contact but I just called him to see what he suggests.

It took me forever to convince the wife this might just be a good thing for us. Now that I have her blessings, I'm ready to roll. The kids are excited about the prospect. They have always wanted to move there. It's my wife that's been reluctant to even consider it.

A better option would be to leave North America alltogether, perhaps places like Ecuador or Peru, even Brazil.

Edmonton. He's in a refinery up there. He says never been happier. Says he loves it up there. More importantly, because he left for the same reasons, he's happy with the 'system'. Not a perfect one but one that he has no problem contributing to.
