I am a US-born citizen, college educated, and over 60. I reside in a major US city. The recent Presidential election in the US has resulted in an increase in threats and actual violent anti-semitic acts that directly threaten my personal safety (and the safety of so many others), I would like to relocate to Toronto for at least a year or two; possibly seeking permanent residence.

If possible, I would like to relocate prior to the January 20, 2017 presidential inauguration.


I receive a monthly pension from my former US employer that would adequately cover my living expenses, but I intend to seek employment as a certified Pilates instructor. There are several openings in the Toronto area for which I am qualified and my intention is to pursue one or more instructor positions.

I understand that initially, I would be a temporary visitor for six months and that I can apply for an extension. Since I receive a pension income and am financially self-supporting, how does this affect my ability to relocate to Toronto and eventually pursue permanent residence?


Thank you.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

Unfortunately, we are unable to provide a definitive response regarding whether or not you will be permitted to stay in Canada as you have stated.

However, in terms of what other types of options you may have available, you can find some in our Settlement.Org How can I apply to immigrate to Ontario? article.

I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
