I am interested to moving to Canada (Ontario/Toronto area) later this year to be with my boyfriend. I currently live in Oregon.
I have been looking into the immigration websites for Canada and it seems like we either have to be married, common law or have $10,000 in my savings to come into the country legally.....(when I move up I will need to start working right away).
Can I apply for a work permit to move into the country and start the permanent resident status once I'm there? The money in the account to apply under skilled worker really concerns me as of course I don't have those kind of funds in my accounts.
Any advice would be greatly appeciated as I seem to be hitting a dead end everywhere else I look.
