How do you become a Canadian?

I only want serious replies in this thread. Any Tom foolery is strictly verboten.

You have to hit a moose, but I think that is only one of the requirements.

no, that's a requirement for alaskan.


In canada, you have to hit a squirrel, skunk or racoon. Bonus points if your car breaks down because of that.

So I am Canadian? I've hit all three many times, you always really regret hitting the skunk too.

I think they have surgery that can make you a Canadian now, but it's considered an elective procedure.

If you can format this sentence into a popular Canadian phrase, we'll let you in:

"περάσει την μπύρα, ε" or "pasar la cerveza, eh"

No worries, that's only if you want to move to Saskatchewan. Ontario will let you in ... even with your orange sauconies.

Just drive north until you see snow, in July. Then stop and salute the Queen with a pint of LaBatt Nordic (an NA for you El Coucho).

If hitting a Moose with canoe is not an option, you can apply for green card (or whatever their equivalent is), then permanent resident. From what my friend told me once they have some kind of point system. High level education +x points, can speak french +x points. Get enough and fast track to permanent resident. To become a citizen you need to live there for certain amount of time.
