There is no retirement PR class. You will have to qualify under one of the following classes:

Living for such a long time in the US, I presume you have legal status in the US (citizenship). I invite you to load a few thousands of greenbacks, come to Montreal during whichever season you prefer and have a blast. Once bored, I suggest you return to the good ole´ US. Looks to me like you may have problems related to age and want to guzzle up Canada´s meager healthcare resources!! Do you think that is fair for the folks who spent their lives here and worked and paid into the system? Conversely, get involved in the healthcare debate in the US and try to get that system straightened out. You can also move to Massachusetts and enjoy the limited free healthcare they provide for their residents. I am hoping that MA doesn´t need PR to setle in from other States. Good luck.

Doesn´t Canada accept U.S. retirees who have enough money to live until they die? What resources do you have to show to prove you won´t be a burden to the system? Don´t they let retirees in?

No - Canada does not accept US retiress who have enough money to live until they die. Retiress are a burden on the system regardless of their bank accounts. The last years of an individual´s life are by far the most costly from a heath care standpoint and Canada´s health care system (and other social services) could not bear the costs.

You only option is to qualify through one of the categories listed in the CIC link provided earlier. Failing that, you can certainly come to Canada as a visitor (make sure you buy health insurance because you won´t be covered by the health care system). Or you may wish to explore spending your retirement years in a different country.

What category of immigrant do I qualify for if I am over 62 and retired? (in reply to: How do I reapply for PR; my old status expired)
If I´m over 62, U.S. citizen, ´71 graduate of McGill and landed immigrant with expired status and must reapply to get PR status, what category do I qualify for? Is there any chance at all? Or do they just refuse you because of age, even if you have enough assets to live on until you die.

Have you even bothered to read through the material on the link I provided earlier? All of the answers to your questions are there. If you are not able/not willing to read through this information to educate yourself, then I would suggest you hire an immigration attorney/representative to do the work for you.

The fact that you were educated in Canada and used to hold PR status has no bearing on your present situation. You have to qualify from scratch along with everyone else. The general categories are skilled worker, investor, entreprenuer and small businessman. Again, there is no retirement class.

As I explained before, you may have enough money to pay your living expenses until you die - however that still leaves health care which is a huge expense. And why should Canada and Canadian tax payers fund your most expensive health care years?

OK--I´m not an investor, entrepreneur or small businessman. I´m a writer--how does that fit into "skilled worker?" I have heard of many 62 year-old people with plenty of assets who have immigrated to Canada--and are not a financial burden. Just tell me anyone, is the door closed completely? No need to get huffy about health insurance, or tell me how to fix the U.s. system--that´s your agenda. But is that it? I can´t come back? I´ve read the categories--none seem to apply. Any unbiased, non-pissy help out there? Thanks again!
