Canadians who live in Edmonton and are looking to either work in the United States or immigrate to the United States on a permanent basis have several options when it comes to meeting these goals. Many people immigrate to the United States from Canada every single year, and you can join them. 

Options for immigrating to the United States from Canada

If you want to immigrate to the United States for a temporary stay and you want to work in the United States, you will need to apply for a United States work visa. There are several different options you can consider, including the TN visa, the L1 visa, the H1B visa and the E2 visa among others. Each of these visas has different requirements, and it is very important to ensure you meet those requirements before you apply.

You also have several different options when it comes to applying for a United States green card, or as it is otherwise known – lawful permanent resident status. Two options that may suit many Canadians is either having an employer sponsor you for permanent residency, or having a spouse or close family member sponsor you for permanent residency. However, these are not easy applications to make and they can take quite some time depending on your situation.
