Subject: Move to canada and lose your H-1
 
I just got my PPR. I was planning to move to canada and apply for my PR card and then move permanently in Summer.

One of my friends said that if I moved to canada, I would lose my H-1b because the canadian govt wants you to stay in canada.

frankly, it doesn´t make a lot of sense to me just thought I might check with others...........

What doesn´t make sense to you?

Oh right, it does sound strange that Canada does not give permanent residency to some one who doesn´t reside in Canada.

I wonder why they do that (sic)?

Sam, Look Canada is giving you the chance to stay in there so accept it. Stay there and love it. Build your new country. If you like to make America your home better stay in America. Give the chance to others who wants to go to Canada. Please don´t mind.

Do you mean US or America... as far as I know America is a continent and not a country.

Where is Canada? in Europe?
NO! still in America.

H1B (in reply to: Move to canada and lose your H-1)
Sam,

Did you apply for the greencard in the U.S. while on H1B? if yes ... then you will abandon your greencard application ...

If you are still in the labor certfication stage ... you can still continue your greencard application to the U.S. Consul in Canada ... assuming the company sponsoring your H1B will not cancel it... but once you get your greencard and decide to step back in the U.S. .. you have to work in that same company .... for about a few months ... just to save face coz they sponsored you ..

You could also step out to Canada ... then step back in to the U.S. and continue your work ... while pondering where you will stay ... at least you did not waste your Canada PR ....

Did I make sense??

BTW

You won´t lose your H1B ... as long as you got the VISA stamp on your passport...

You only lose it when your company cancels it... or when you changed status in the U.S. and have to go back to your mother country and have it stamped ,,, and it gets denied (it happens.. the consul outside is mutually exclusive) ...

Or when it expires and you don´t renew ..

But if you go to Canada .. and then comeback .. without losing your job ... you won´t lose it ... of course if you stay out long ... and you get fired or something then you lose the sponsorship .. and so does the H1B ..

Sam,
You will not lose your H1B status, you can enter US anytime you want until your H1B expires.
Too many people on the forum have idle time to repeatedly post statements like "If you are not going to live in Canada, why did you apply for PR" and such, just ignore and proceed.
