moving to canada from nj by vic (new jersey) I’m thinking of moving to Canada to follow my girlfriend … I’m getting unemployment benefits right now. Can I still collect while settling in and looking for a job in Canada…while I’m in Canada? Hi Vic, I don’t know the answer. I do know that the United States does have some sort of treaty with Canada with regard to unemployment, but that’s all. I suggest you call the State of NJ and ask the question.
