Any Canadian citizens working in the US? Do you need a H1B or other special visa? What restrictions do Canadian citizens have for working in US in terms of the visa?

You will need a TN visa.

^Thanks M1. Is that easier to get than a H1B?

Canadians don't apply for H1B as far as I'm aware.

Canadians can apply for H1B visa.

Or L1 is another option

Same restrictions as everyone else, you need a work visa. TN is one that Canadians can use but is non-immigrant and sometimes customs is douchy about allowing. Otherwise same as others: H1, L1, etc. On the bright side there is no line up for GC so all is current.

I have heard there is no lottery system for TN like H1, so everyone who applies gets it.

There is no cap/lottery, plenty of people apply and DONT get it still. There are requirements.

TN is very easy to get, but you can't get a green card with it (ie you can't stay in the US long-term). Eventually your company will have to sponsor you for something else if you want to stay
