non-standard question about move from nyc to montreal
April 2, 2014 1:12 PM Subscribe
I currently work in NYC for a large multinational financial services company. I'm in a contract position here, which is due to be renewed in August (which possibly might not be). They've internally offered me a full-time position in Montreal, and I don't know if I should take the offer (which is flat on salary. 110k/yr). I can probably find a similar position in NYC, but it'd be a contract position, and I really like the culture of the company I work for and I guess I'd rather have the job security of a full time position right now... huge snowflake inside.

My single biggest concern is that my partner is a UK citizen living in the UK and I was already planning on her immigrating here to the US. How disruptive would a move to Canada be? How hard is it to become a permanent resident/citizen/whatever of canada? My company would handle whatever is necessary for me to be able to work over there, but I'm not sure what I would need to do to bring my partner over there. Would getting a spouse/fiancée visa be easier here in the US, or in Canada? If it's going to add a significant amount of time to me being with my partner, I think I would probably be against the move. (I've talked to her about it, and she has a slight preference for Canada, but, we'd both prefer which ever solution gets us together quicker.)
And yeah, there's a lot of research I need to do. But I'd like some quick pointers to information either way. Thanks!
