Assistance after being deported to Canada?


New Member
Hi, everyone. The search engines have been no help, so hopefully someone here will be able to shed some light on this matter. I moved from Canada to the US when I was 8 years old (I am now 33) and now that immigration is tightening up, I am worried that I may be deported back to a country where I know nobody because of an assault charge several years ago.

My question is: what do I do if I am deported to Canada? I have no living relatives there and know nobody. Will I just be dropped off at the border and will have to be homeless? Are there any programs or services in Canada that can help me obtain a job, place to live, etc. since I am a Canadian citizen?

Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
