    I wonder if all of those wanting a speedy entrance into Canada will continue on their quest to come here if retrogression really is lifted?

    And that is what many, many Cdn. posters have said over and over only to be shouted down. Our country is not a stepping stone.

    The sudden desire to live and work in Canada professed my so many has been due to the limits of the US system. That is why we have been so perturbed by posters complaining about how long it takes for the Immigration takes to process immigration papers. It takes as long as it takes and it sure is faster than the US system.

    I here you Fiona, it doesn't feel good to be second choice but I think you will see many people being interested in Canada. Why they are mentioning retrogression, another bill in already in the Senate to increase nursing educators. I think the wish for lifting retrogression is just that a wish.

    President Obama appears to be willing to tackle several complex issues at the same time and he has clearly stated that he intendeds to get to work on immigration reforms starting now.
    I think most Americans are aware that when politicians talk about "immigration reform," the primary issue issue being addressed is illegal immigration.

    The bill currently in Congress seems like a rehash of similar bills that never made it out of committee. With the unemployment rate rising, I can't fathom that this one will be passed either.

    In March, Obama himself stated, "The notion that we would have to import nurses makes absolutely no sense. And for people who get fired up about the immigration debate and yet don't notice that we could be training nurses right here in the United States -- and there are a lot of people who would love to be in that helping profession and yet we just aren't providing the resources to get them trained -- that's something that we've got to fix. That should be a no-brainer."

    I think people need to take what they read on some of the websites cited in this forum with a grain of salt. Many of them are run by law firms specializing in immigration, and they have a vested interest in drumming up business. Others--like http://www.visaretrogression.com/, are run by employment agencies.

    The current bill could pass--it's possible--but I wouldn't want people to get their hopes up and then be disappointed...

    Yep. I love Canada. If I were a Canadian nurse, I'd be plenty irritated by people who think your country is a stepping stone...

    For a Immigrant choosing between USA and Canada

    Some think Canada is part of the USA.

    We that live in the USA and work in the USA, We know it's the best country in the World hands down.

    No other country can compare, We are the World Super Power and rumored to have streets paved with gold.
