Do Canadian firms have any interest in hiring American JDs given the market and that Canadian associates are moving to the US?

I haven’t seen it happen in my region (Montreal), but I suppose that has something to do with the fact that a lot of business here takes place in French. Can’t speak to the other markets, but I’d assume there would be some interest given how hot the market is.

Okay thanks! I’m a Canadian citizen which should hopefully help.

Yes. I see this in Toronto often. But I suspect it’s practice area and experience dependent.

Hi fellow fish, I have an I-140 approved but can’t move to the next stage, I-485, until my PERM role is active (manager position). I’ll have to wait for at least one more year for this to happen, and I’m very much burnt out and depressed. My question is (1) how hard is it to find company that will sponsor nowadays and (2) would it take a lot more time to restart the entire process at the new firm?

Why does the “side hustle” discussion bother people? If you have a separate creative outlet on your own time, great! If you find it offensive when others encourage you to do so, that’s kind of on you.

I'm under contract for a new build in progress that won't be done until much later this year. I fully expect interest rates will be higher than what I originally estimated. I may or may not try to lock in a good rate early, but I'm planning on renting it out and this throws a bit if a wrench in my margins. I can take it financially, but wondering, If I absolutely needed to get out of buying it, what recourse do I have? Or could I go ahead, and refinance later (who knows rates at that time...)?
