    july 2018, Citizen Application.

    It should work now for you to edit... the darn permissions weren't set correctly so it was locking everyone out. Ugh.

    Anyone who holds Dual US-Canadian Citizenship?

    The healthcare issue is huge- I worked 10+ years in the US and I had a great job with great benefits and because of that, excellent access to healthcare. But, when I got laid off, poof, there went my excellent access to health care. It's a pretty terrifying feeling to have the vulnerability...

    Anyone who holds Dual US-Canadian Citizenship?

    I do still have family in the states- my parents, siblings, etc. My siblings understand my reasoning and ask, somewhat jokingly, if I can bring them to Canada. My mother cannot understand why I wouldn't want to be a citizen what she describes as the greatest nation in the world! When she said...

    Anyone who holds Dual US-Canadian Citizenship?

    I just renounced my US Citizenship. My rationale was that by doing so it simplifies my life, I no longer have to report ALL my accounts (bank, investment, etc. regardless of if they are sole accounts or joint accounts with my spouse), I can take advantage of TFSAs with no worries, etc...

    US citizen with Canadian PR applying for citizenship

    Thankfully I took advantage of the weak Canadian dollar early last year and closed out all my US accounts- IRA, 401K, etc. The early withdrawal tax penalty was painful, but I made everything 'back' on the currency exchange. Now everything is in an RRSP and all that's left to do is hand over...

    US citizen with Canadian PR applying for citizenship

    I'll add my 2 cents- I moved to Canada from the US, recently got my Canadian citizenship and am planning on renouncing my US Citizenship. As other posters have said, you absolutely can have both citizenships. In my case, I find the burden of filing taxes in the US to be incredibly cumbersome...

    Montréal Applicants Oct. 2017 after C6

    Or you can look at one of the other tabs like the Location Annual tab... for each province we tried to pick the cities that seem to have frequent applicants. This then tracks applicants who listed that city from each month. If this doesn't work for you, the best thing to do is export to excel...
