There are many different statuses, but most likely you're thinking of a "Lawful Permanent Resident."


As far as I understand it, anyone who is not a Canadian citizen/immigrant/permanent resident, you need a work permit.

You have to be a permanent resident alien (legal immigrant with a green card permanently residing in the U.S.) or a naturalized citizen to the join the U.S. Navy or other military branches.


Yes, they do. The Canadian permanent resident card is the only proof of identification that proves, both inside and outside of Canada, you are a permanent resident of Canada.


Yes, if your permanent resident status is unconditional.

Possibly, assuming your permanent residence status was granted due to your marriage to a US citizen or foreign national who also is a permanent resident.

The US citizen must file the immigrant petition for the applicant.Form I-130 is used for that purpose. Once that is approved then the applicant's priority date should be considered. It is essential that the priority date should be current.This procedure is for Lawful permanent residents who got married after obtaining a Green Card. The other case is where the Lawful permanent resident got married before obtaining the green Card.In such cases, there is no need of an approved immigrant petition. Lawful Permanent Residents who have adjusted their status to that of a Lawful Permanent Resident should file Form I-824 (Application for Action on an Approved Application or Petition). This is to notify the appropriate consulate that their spouse will accompany or follow to join them in the US.
