Moving to Canada if Trump Becomes President? It Will Cost You This...

Donald Trump could very well  become the next  president of the United States...

Feeling like the thousands who have said if so I am moving to Canada? 

The cost of living in Canada verses the states is 7.18% cheaper & rental prices are 26% cheaper.

With as good looking as our Prime Minister is you may want to think about the cost of such a move and the countless things you need to consider.

Canada  is known for it's welcoming nature and of course the free health care. Our absolutely marvelous maple syrups and gorgeous landscapes draw people from all around the globe.

You want to initially be a permanent resident. Citizenship fees can really add up quickBecoming a Canadian Resident will run you up to $800. Permanent Resident Application: $450-$850

And if you want to work..then yes you guessed it, another fee. Work permit fee to be gainfully employed in Canada $155. If you plan on being self employed, are you ready..? Yes yet another fee!

Free health care is probably the biggest attraction for many new comers to Canada, but just being on Canadian soil...doesn't grant you free health care. More costs coming your way.....
