Are you waiting for the 2020 Presidential Election results to make the move to Canada? The election is right around the corner and there is a possibility the results aren’t exactly how you wanted. If so, Canada is always looking for those looking to start a new life there and contribute to the country.
There was a huge increase in the US to Canada applications during the presidential election in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected. This increase stayed consistent throughout the election results to his inauguration. There is a possibility this happens again this year so here are your options to look into when moving to Canada!
International Mobility Program (NAFTA)
The International Mobility Program which is part of the CUSMA formerly known as NAFTA allows workers from the US to work in Canada without a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA). This work permit only applies to certain occupations and is issued by the Canadian government under the International Mobility Program. These applications can be done at the Port of Entry, at a visa office, or online.
