I am a Canadian that has been living in America for 8 years as a permanent resident. I currently live with my English boyfriend, who is here on an L1 visa (which is being transferred over to an H1B). We are in the process of getting my paperwork together so that he can sponsor me as a common-law unmarried partner to move to England. As I've done this before (Canada to America) I do know that one of the best ways to get some insight into the underbelly of immigration is to ask people who have been through it. [more inside]

Give me good reasons not to move from the U.S. to Canada (specifically Toronto, Winnipeg, Calgary, or Vancouver) in 2-6 years. I especially welcome input from MeFites who have lived in both countries. [more inside]

I'm thinking about moving to Paris, France in a year.
I'm a software engineer living in Canada. I will have a degree within the next few months. I have an EU citizenship (Portugal). I speak almost no French. What should I look into? Is this a terrible idea? [more inside]

I'm a Canadian looking to move (and work) in the USA. Not necessarily forever, but more than the three months a tourist visa allows. I've got a 2 year college degree and 8 yrs experience in IT. Where do I start to figure out how to do it? [more inside]

Let's say I wanted to move myself and my family (wife + two kids) to New Zealand for a few years - just for the adventure. Of course, I would need a job. How would one go about finding work and moving? Is it possible with immigration issues etc. to pull this off? I did spend about four months there a few years ago just as a tourist.
