Possibility of a canadian working for USPTO?

Hello:
 
I have one question regarding the legibility of Patent Examiner position at USPTO.  On the website, it stated clearly it requires US citizenship however I am a Canadian.  Is there an exception of the requirement for the Canadian?  Typically Canadian can apply for a different working VISA than most of the other foreign visa?
   
Much appreciate

Not really. They have a very thorough security check on those things. Plus, if there is one thing the PTO is good at... its applying beaurocratic red tape.

Sorry you cannot.  I am a Canadian myself and there is just about as much of a hassle to get a visa etc. for Canadians as there is for anyone else. Yes a TN is easy to get but you want an H1-B.  Try the Canadian patent office.

It does not matter what visa you get, you cannot become a patent examiner at the USPTO without becoming a US citizen.
 
Perhaps you are instead refering to the requirements for taking the patent practitioners registration exam.
