To answer the question: No. Other than a sort-of common language and vehicles (GM, Ford) Canada is still a foreign country. I'd no more move there than Great Britain.

I know a couple American nuclear power executives who looted the coffers of Ontario Power about 10 years ago in the Pickering nuclear plant mess. One was my former plant manager at TVA. They were 'landed immigrants' which I guess gave them lots of citizenship rights - except citizenship. 'Gene' made out the best and I think he got over $5 million Canadian during his contract. But when it was done he quickly moved back home. He liked it better in the U.S. even though he was living a fairly privileged life in Canada.

I used to live in SW Washington. It never got super cold but there was about 1 month of sub freezing and I never owned a coat... If that didn't build my character it's too late for me.
Come on to Pennsylvania...in the winter it gets so cold that the tears actually freeze on your face....It can get BONE CHILLING.

I hereby officially re-affirm my faith in humanity.... for now.
I found out that you can get dual citizenship for US and Canadian citizenship.
Personally, I wouldn't go for dual citizenship because I do not see many benefits in getting Canadian citizenship. Maybe double-dipping on old age and medical benefits? Hiding from a mad wife? And if there was a draft, an escape state to get away from the draft. Although it would be easier to claim religious beliefs conflict rather than getting into the citizenship process. Another negative would the administrative charges. No thanks. The benefits do not outweigh costs.

No Kaboom!

We are learning how to get along.

I spent money and had to take a test to become an American Citizen, so I think I will just keep my Citizenship.

Your residency not citizenship will determine where you get medical and old age pension.
