    yeah sure, there's a website somewhere for americans to hook up with canadians, specifically for that purpose. LOL

    you'd have to go thru some sort of legal process though, it wouldnt happen automatically

    It can actually be a long, drwan out process. A friend of mine married a scottish guy and it took 2 years of paper work, interviews, etc. for him to become a Canadian citizen, after they got married. It was very invasive, as the immigartion people have to be sure that you're really in love and married for the right reasons.It's not always a given that you will be accepted, even if you have children together. I know one couple, who is married and have a son together, and they have been fighting for over 5 years for her hubby to become a citizen.

    Well first off no one just comes to Canada and WHAMO is a candian citizen.

    Step one is becomming a landed immigrant, this in its self can often be a drawn out process. First they look at your education/skills and lingusitic competency(english and/or french) to determine whether or not you're even eligable. Then all cases are handled on a basis of priority in which marriage, family status, and other circumstances are taken into consideration. If you're at the top of the list it might be a matter of months, maybe a year, if you're not however it may be years before you can even get this far.

    THEN you need 4 years of residency in Canada as a landed immigrant before recieving Canadian Citizenship.

    So long story short; no, marriage doesn't get you citizenship

    if i were to get a job there do i need a work visa or something, or if im squattin there will they come and kick me out, it'd be nice to be a citizen so i could go do the doctor and whatnot, but if i live there are they gonna kick me out for not being a citizen?
    and regardless of citizenship, the offers still open ladies.

    you know, there's always a way to get around the rules

    but

    it's probably just as easy to check around on the canadian immigration site if you're really serious about wanting to immigrate here

    If you tell them someone wants to kill you, you get in for free and they give you mega bucks to live on.

    pretty soon you'll be able to marry a man and stay here.

    My friend's dad has lived and worked here for decades and he's originally from California. He's not a citizen legally and he doesn't want to be. He says it' far too much work to go through.

    So I could just come up to Canada and get a job? No problem? And no one would kick me out?

    you would need a work visa, not to difficult to attain if you already have employment lined up (you of course could come here as a visitor for the initial job hunt)
