Subject: Permanent Residency to Canada with US Work Visa
  My Permanent Residency to Canada has been approved. I still however have a valid work authorization in the US until December 2009. Is it possible for me and my family to migrate to Canada in June 2008, stay until our Green Cards are issued, return to the US until my work authorization expires and return to Canada to build our lives? While we do have funds that we would require to start us off in Canada, the additional funds that the remainder of my work authorization would give us would still be important.

a) How long will be receive our actual Green Cards after arriving to Canada?

b) How soon can we leave for the US after that?

in Canada it is called Permanent Residency - nothing green here :)

you should expect a 3-4 week wait to get all your required documents. However, do you have a relative or friend that can receive your mail? if so, use their address and have everything sent to them. People are generally able to come and go after 2-3 days.

something to think about - not wanting to scare you...

the economy is slowing down. not sure what industry you are in or where you are intending to land - it will be easier to get a job now than in December 2009.

Thank you. Those are two very interesting points:

a) If it true that me and my family can arrive and leave within days without jeopardizing the receipt of our permannent residency cards - this would truly help.

b) I am amissed to have not been "in the know" with economic issues in Canada - being more "involved" with domestic affairs. However, if it is a fact that the economy is slowing down - then a career even if acquired prior to December 2009 can still be compromised by the economy. I have heard that Canadian immigration has been extremely "open" and "liberal" and I am wondering if this would have any negative impact in the economy - as it has in the US economy.

BTW, I am in "high level" corporate financial management - recently focusing on nonprofit/nongovernmental organizations; but with diverse financial, strategic and operations management experience in various industries, government, included.

Again, thank you.

a) you would not be the first to take this option
b) Canadian immigration is open and liberal. Unfortunately, as hard as we try, we are still impacted by any slowing felt in the US economy. They are suggesting that Alberta and BC will suffer the least because we are commodity based rather than manufacturing.

NPO background eh! I am a CEO of a small business NPO in Vancouver.

I am currently Controller and Acting CFO of a $6.6M operation. Maybe an alliance would not be a "far-off" idea. Thanks, again.
