I'm American and my wife is Canadian. I was hoping to immigrate to Canada. My wife would be sponsoring me but I was wondering if I could apply for Permanent Residency while I'm living with my wife in Canada? (I currently work in the US and live with my wife in Canada on my days off.)

I don't currently possess either a student visa or a work visa. The Canadian Immigration website doesn't really give a clear answer and I don't want to get into any trouble staying in Canada past the normal 60 days while the application is being processed.

Thanks for any help that you can give me.

I am a kindergarten teacher and we just received your posters re dressing for winter

Very disappointed to see you are still advocating the use of scarves, see this article: http://www.ctvnews.ca/canada/scarf-ban-for-kids-using-winnipeg-school-playground-equipment-1.2664554


Scarves are not only dangerous, but they are almost impossible for small children to secure properly. As a teacher, I do not have time to help a class full of three, four and five year olds do up their scarves!


In addition, your video is cute but really doesn't give much info. Parents should be coached to teach their kids to dress in this order: snowpants, boots, jacket, neckwarmer, hat. Mittens are last, because kids can't do the other jobs once they are wearing them.

I wish you would research a bit more before spending all that money on posters and videos.

Thanks

Cindy
