    Yes.

    Canada has a strict immigration system. All immigrants must meet the same requirements in order to apply for permanent residency. These include things such as: marrying a Canadian willing to sponsor you; having an approved job offer in specific professions (doctors, engineers, nurses, specialized trades, etc.) and competing for a 5,000 positions based on age, education, work experience, language skills, etc.; having a net worth of $1.6M and investing $800k in Canada; completing certain university degrees in Canada and finding employment in specific professions shortly after graduating; being nominated by one of the provinces (doctor willing to work in a remote community, buy and run a farm in some provinces, world-class performing artist, etc.); etc. You must pass medical, background, and financial checks. Process can take three to five years or more depending upon the category.

    In 2012, only 9,900 Americans obtained permanent residency in Canada. Of these, over 70% obtained permanent residency under the family sponsorship category (i.e. the married a Canadian who sponsored them or were a minor child of someone who married a Canadian). In most cases, if you have the job offers, education, work experience, and money needed to apply to Canada under any of the economic categories... you already have a good life in the United States.
