    What skills do you offer that would get you a job there? Are you rich enough to found a business and open a Canadian branch that would employ Canadians?  You could immigrate as a business owner/operator.

    Because otherwise, you're pretty much out of luck.  Unless you have relatives there, those are the only two ways you could get permanent resident status and eventually apply for citizenship.

    It depends.  If you have a skill, or profession that is in high demand in Canada, chances are really good.  If not - not so good.  Of the 300,000 immigrants that Canada accepts every year, about 10,000 come from the USA.

    If you're already a permanent resident in Canada your chances are close to 100%. It's getting to that point that's really the most difficult. If you're not being sponsored by a Canadian relative then you'd start with a work visa. Whether you'd get to remain in Canada long enough to obtain PR status and later naturalization would depend on how good you are at your profession.

    What are your qualifications? What degrees do you hold in which field from which universities where? What post-master's (preferably doctorate) degree experience do you have doing what, exactly, how well & how long for whom where? Do you have specialize expertise in an occupation which is currently in short supply in Canada & listed on its shortage list as eligible for temporary employment visa or immigration (PR)? IF so, can you find a job opening in that field with an AUTHORIZED employer who holds govt permission to consider foreign applicants? IF you apply for such a job, can you beat out all the other applicants from around the world for that position, & get hired?

    Very small unless you marry a Canadian citizen who can sponsor you for immigration.

    Once you've legally immigrated, you can apply after the waiting period.

    To legally immigrate, you need to apply and show you have skills that are needed in the country and means to support yourself.

    You can learn more on the Government of Canada website.

    First you have to apply for Permanent Resident status. A lot of qualification for that is work skill(s) in demand in Canada, good health, ossibly a job waiting. It's all here:

    Couldn't guess what your chances are  so many variables.

    Zero......as citizenship is not given to people based on 'what you would like' first you would have to be legally a perminant resident for a number of years in Canada...and that means having the correct visa to live in Canada long enough to be able to apply
