Why they didn’t go to Canada.


Well, it is now an old story about the Hollywood celebrities reneging on their promise to move to Canada. But now I understand!

If you are a professional (doctor, lawyer) the process is easier. However, if you’re a grocer, it’s harder. Canada has categories of “skilled workers” that need to be met. Of course, if you speak French, that gives you a leg up if you want to move to the Province of Quebec. Does Rosie O’Donnell speak French?

Also note that even for Americans who are able to check the right boxes, there are other big hurdles to becoming Canadian—namely, the process is slow and expensive. Even a simple application to join a spouse in Canada can cost between $5,000 and $15,000, and the waiting period can take years.

So, if you are looking to Canada as a “safe space” to ride out the Trump presidency, I’m sorry to throw cold water on your plan. And speaking of cold water….

searchit’s really is cold up there.

And thanks to PCoop for sending this to me.
