Answer . By making an official application at a Mexican Consulate in Canada.. Answer . I know of no foreign born non-Latino that has acquired Mexican citizenship.. Answer . Maybe this person meant to say "resident status"? Not citizenship.. Answer . I am a Mexican citizen with a "gree…n card." I know that virtually any foreigner can become a permanent resident in Mexico (I wish immigration laws were that easy in the US!) Citizenship, however, may be a little more complicated.. Answer . 1st of all you'll need to complete residence in Mexico, This is done with an FM2. Every year you need it approved by Immigration for 5 years. On the 6th year your will receive your last stamp from Immigration Dept. which makes you and permanent resident. Then you may apply for ciitzenship with SRE (Secretary of Exterior Relations)in Mexico. Then you must wait 6-8 months while they review your case and decide if you will receive citizenship or not.

How difficult is it to immigrate to Canada if your fiance is Canadian and do you apply for a skilled worker or do you get married and apply for citizenship if you don't have many funds right now?
Answer . I believe you'll be asked to show proof of at least $10,000 CAD for a skilled worker status, even with a job offer. I would get married and try for the family status, although Canada really likes for you to show you can support yourself until you're on your feet.

According to the 2006 Canadian census, one in five Canadians is foreign born, over half of those are from Asia.
"yes, but only if you have a parent that was born in America andone born in Canada" This is not precisely, or necessarily true. It is possible for a Canadian to become a dual citizen if neitherparent was born in the United States, but it depends on when theywere born and where their parents were b…orn. Canadians, since 1947, can hold multiple citizenships. It is a complex question. You are best advised to contact a UnitedStates embassy or consulate near you for more information. Theywill likely send you questionnaire to help you determine yourstatus. In general though, it is not possible for a foreign government toforce you to renounce your citizenship, even as a condition ofcitizenship in that country. So as long as you meet therequirements to become a citizen of the United States, it doesn'tmatter if you are also a Canadian citizen. (MORE)

There is no such thing as a "Canadian" culture anymore than thereis a single Global Culture. Canada is a Confederation of many Nations, each with many peoplesand cultures. Some of those cultures date back thousands of years, some hundredsand most just a few decades. Most Canadians have very shall…ow family roots in Canada with 38%not being born in Canada or having at least one parent not born inCanada. With that in mind "Immigrants" are Canadian culture, just as theyare Global Culture. BTW in Canada "Immigrants" are considered First Generation andtheir children Second Generation. This is different than mostcountries because once a person becomes Canadian they get all therights and benefits, sometimes even more, than those whose familieshave been in Canada for hundreds of years. Also those whose families have been here for hundreds of years donot force their culture on others, not even their children.Multi-Generational Canadians have a very live and let live cultureand think it is wrong to force others to change their culture. Ofcourse this is not the case for all Multi-Generational Canadiancultures as there are some who have made laws that force theirlanguage and culture on new comers. Aside from that minority mostCanadians respect other cultures and do not force their culture, oreven share their culture as much as others. It is the main qualityof Canadians that people like. People who come to Canada have, generally speaking, kept theirculture. (MORE)
The visa-free travel is almost the same for both of them. Traveling to the Middle East; use the Canadian one because nowadays the US has many enemies. Both Canada and the US require their citizens to enter and depart the country on their own passport. So, carry them both with you always.

Yes, you can get Canadian citizenship through marriage. However, easier said than done. It is not automatic. Marriage will allow the non-Canadian spouse to obtain permanent residency. After 3 years of basic residence/and or physical presence in Canada can apply for citizenship. Everyone needs to sat…isfy this requirement, which provides the same rights and benefits as citizens except one cannot vote. The Canadian spouse will need to sponsor the non-Canadian, where he/she will need to prove that he/she makes enough money which will allow him/her to support the spouse. Also need to sign a statement that no welfare will be claimed. This remains applicable for 3 years, until the landed immigrant spouse becomes eligible for citizenship. (MORE)
Through the US citizen spouse can get green card after two years of marriage and after 3rd anniversary can apply for US citizenship using Form N-400.
An immigrant's experience in Canada: The Canadian government solicits potential immigrants and dupesthem into bringing their skills and money to Canada. It advertisesthe country to people from other countries, mainly for their money;each prospective economic immigrant has to bring with them minimum…$10,000. It's a scam but then again so is everything else inCanada. When the Canadian govt is engaged in such a scam you canonly imagine the extent to which the average Canadian individual isalso involved in a scam of their own to survive, everything fromphoney govt jobs to independent immigration consultants. EveryCanadian is involved in some kind of a scam. Fraud is a way of lifein Canada and you have to do your part just to pay the bills toextortionist utility, rent, insurance companies, etc. If you comewith the mentality - as immigrants erroneously do - that this is adeveloped country and expect an efficient and competent system youwill be greatly mistaken: Malfeasance is the call of the day inCanada. Since the country's economy largely depends on service, and Canadano longer a manufacturing country, the best show in town in termsof gainful employment is a govt job. That requires "networking" -code word for FAVORITISM in Canada - forget about best qualifiedperson getting the job. In many respects Canada is a developingcountry. There's a disconnect between the political class and theaverage person (which explains the immigration disaster, amongother common fundamentally flawed and corrupt practices). Canadians are cold and standoffish. Nothing happens and everybodykeeps it to themselves. It's the most socially inept country in theworld. Since it's socially dead country one becomes accustomed toabnormal behavior. Canada lacks national identity and nationalculture. Subsequently everyone identifies with the country of theirparents or great parents' origin. Forget about assimilation andadapting to Canada, you cannot assimilate and adapt to anunreceptive environment. Consequently racial attitudes are behind30-40 years, say the United States. Which is really unfortunatebecause the country's population is aging at an incredible rate,and the average immigrant stays for a few years and eventuallyleaves. (40% of all immigrants to Canada at any given year leave sowithin a few years - Statscan.) To augment this the govt typicallybrings in even more people. There's a continuous flow of "new"arrivals filling the position of those who have come and gone. Major cities, namely Toronto, Vancouver and Montreal, are decayingsocially and economically. Heavy drinking, drug use and othersocial problems are rampant along with crumbling infrastructure.But people in Canada don't discuss issues of national importance,they lack coherent objective national discourse. People complainand say what they think they're supposed to say, or, moreaccurately, say what they think will make them sound smart. Whetherinferiority complex or other social deformity, people in Canadadislike constructive criticism and altruism. They remain riskaverse to a fault, so problems fester. Everyone simply prefers topretend everything is nice and dandy. (MORE)

No, it is not possible. You should first apply for permanent residency and physically be present in Canada for 3 years. Then you can apply for Canadian citizenship if you meet other eligibility requirements.
Yes, it's quite common. People born in the USA can add Canadian citizenship. Being born in Canada to US parents gives you dual citizenship automatically. It's a bit more complicated when you want to add US citizenship, but not impossible.
