Not sure exactly. You would have to read up on all this: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/immigrate/index.asp

Seems you would have a much easier time of it if you are a skilled trade and/or had a job waiting.

If you have a criminal record or health issues, you are going to have a very hard time getting admitted.

Yes, seems that being a refugee gets around all those requirements.

It is starting to sound like it is easier to come to the USA than it is to Canada and just live there and get benefits.

I wish America had those same rules for coming to our country. It would be a much better place.

The rules are much the same going both ways.

Yes but America does not kick you out for coming in illegally and will then give you Welfare, healthcare, a driver license and a few other benefits even though you did not follow the rules.

What does Canada do with people that come illegally?

Read this, about retiring in Canada, seems you have to be well qualified to move there.

To live in Canada permanently or for more than six months a year, you usually must apply for permanent resident status. As a retired person, it can be more difficult to qualify for permanent residence, since the government considers your ability to work – and support yourself – an important factor.

The good news is that education counts. If you’re well educated, you speak fluent English and French, and your spouse also has a university degree, you’re more likely to qualify. A retired professor with a PhD is more likely to be accepted than a retired truck driver with a high-​​school education.

Another factor is the amount of savings you have. Even though you’re retired, if you can demonstrate that you have ample financial resources to take care of yourself and your family, Canada will usually look more favorably on your application. And if you have funds to invest in Canada, that’s another plus.

Don't know for sure but living in the shadows with out papers doesn't get you much like welfare or anything else.

But like the US we can run a tiny help wanted ad in the wrong section of the paper for a day or two and if the responses are directed thru the paper we can prove that no locals wanted the job.

There must be people here living illegally, but I rarely read about it. Must not be too many. Doubt the police spend too much time looking for them, but I guess if you are arrested, they gonna find out. If only a few illegals, its much easier to deal with them when they are caught. Government has programs to bring in farm workers - so those guys are mostly legal.

Right now, have a lot more illegals entering from US. The way it works, is that the easiest way to come here is to cross illegally, then get arrested, then make a refugee claim. So word spreads, via facebook, to cross here or here, and cops will be right there on the other side, they stop you, and then you can make your refugee claim.
