As a Canadian citizen you can use the NAFTA however you can not apply for green card you need a employer and as a Canadian a bit easier as in you can work with TN whilst waiting the 6 plus years for greencard. Currently nurses come under EB3 which is affected by retrogression and current processing times are 2006. TN has been used along with GC in the past and for both you need a employer
Thank you so much for your prompt reply
I've had TN visa before under a different working profession category, its fairly easy to obtain as long as I've got all my documents ready with me at the border. The custom officer there however do stress his point making sure that my intention was to work "temporarily".
Lets say for now if I find an employer willing to support me with an employer letter for TN and green card, would this be a problem once I arrive at the border trying to obtain my TN?
Are there any other types of visa I can apply which allows me to work while waiting for my PR to be issued? I know that OPT only gives me one year period after graduation. What about EAD card? Can I extend my EAD expiration date?
Thanks again for all your help!!
