Are you a canadian citizen or have Dual citizenship? You cant just up and move to canada.

It depends on your current status. If you are currently an US citizen you will have to apply for either a work visa or citizenship. It can be expensive to do and will require a wait time before you can move. If you found a job their already the company may start the process for you and may even pay for it. Canada has a page much like our state dept page that explains the process.

Wrong. Theres ALOT of immigrants here but its just like the US, they let immigrants come in but dont let canadians.

If i could move i would. Things arent as good as they sound here.

Well sure you could technically move here, IF you make it past the CBSA at the boarder when you try and cross, but you can't legally work here, would have no health care benefits, could not go to school here.  You have to apply for VISAs.  There are people that qualify for refugee status, but, considering that you are probably American I doubt that you would qualify for that.

You can fairly easily immigrate to Canada if you are a skilled worker or invest a minimum of 1.6 CAD into a business venture in Canada.

Still don't think it will necessarily help OP.

I grew up in Montreal.

If you can't speak fluent french, don't do it!
