Sharon,
I missed the "Black" part... what was that about ? Were you making a statement or refering to someone elses ?

I misread DC (seems you and I both read too fast) I thought he referred to US PR applicants as failed GC holders and ´blacks´ which seemed rather outrageous. I now see it was ´BACK´.

my apologies to everyone including DC.

Raj, I didn´t understand your comment about Canadian citizens living in the US under TN visa status. What does this group have to do with the 6,312 US applicants waiting to immigrate to Canada? Canadian citizens would not, obviously, need to be in a queue to return.

Thanks for replying my question. Now I understand. I didn´t know there was a kind of back log and that processing times depend on country of origin. Is that what it means ? I thought it depends on the visa office the application is processed.

... unless those numbers are based on applicants applying in their country of origin ...

Don´t know how everyone seems to understand those numbers, still confusing to me.

Sharon,

I missed the main part a long back, as dam busy today.

Yes, your statement is correct, I missed the family immigration (some Americans marrying canucks), and of course some gay lesbian. However, core part remain the same.

Rememebr in this site, (though can´t be part of stat for sure), just an example, how many times we see. "I´ll land this date..stay for 5/7 days..then....how long I need to stay to keep my PR valid" like questions. Genuine movers don´t ask such questions in general, except Richard/Wannabe like guys who are in moving process.

I hope you at least wouln´t argue about the rate of inter migration between US/Canada, again you may stumble in math.

Richard,
The 6k+ applicants are a list of applicants from the US in line to get permanent residency in Canada. We would say that this includes US citizens and non-citizens... true. I am now enclosing your statement here .... you mentioned...
"Other than for family/sponsor reasons, many would consider this unusual, as the expectation is it would be the other way around."
I was saying that because of the TN Visa, neither US or Canadian citizens per se need to apply for the PR of the other country to go and reside right ? (Ofcourse excluding spouse class).

So it makes it more probable that out of the 6k+ applicants almost all of them are non-US Citizens, if you omit the spousal cases. And of those I bet most would be non-US green card holders too. I hope I explained it right.

I frequent a website that has a large contigent of US to Canada applicants. Without exception, the US party are born citizens.

Raj,

Thanks for clarification, now I see. However, I´d say that for many US citizens desiring to live in Canada, TN visa is not enough, as it doesn´t provide legal long-term permanancy or social benefits such as health care. Many see such permanancy and benefits as part of residency. So for this reason, I´d disagree in saying that many the 6k are US citizens.

But you may be correct in that many applying through Buffalo are non-US citizens who have some sort of legal status is the US. It´s this breakdown I´d be interested in, if I could find it.

Raj/Richard,

If you look into the motivations that tend guys to inter migrate between US/Canada:

From US to Canada:
1. Illegals, H-1 used up who don´t have any way to get the GC.
2. Family reasons.
4. fedup with Govt. policy, capitalistic system..
5. Gay/Lesbians (what % it may be out of total I doubt)

I would say, the top 2 cosnsist the most as assylum ssekers are out of this picture for sure.

From Canada to US:

1. Most Obviously, job, professional freedom, or hanker after money whatever you can say.

2. Better Weather.

3. Low Tax and less bureacratic hassle, some businessmen prefer USA.

4. Family reason for sure.

meant to say "non-US citzens" in my 3rd line. And Sharon seems to confirm this theory.
