Hi !

I am not a Canadian citizen, and I was wondering if there is a special visa that would enable me to work on this project in the US. I will be flying to the client every week.

Non-Canadian citizens, how do you do it?

You can't.. You can attend meetings on BUSINESS visa, collect data and come back to do analysis in Canada

Or ask the firm to apply for a H1b or L1a

Lot of firms misuse and make you work on business visa but it is a risk and you can get deported

You can say you’re going for business meetings but if you do it too often the security will question you at the airport and flag you once they realize you’re actually working

Can confirm this has happened. A bunch of coworkers were driving across the border and we all had work visas (TN or L1), except one. Border patrol officer took him aside for questioning since he saw he was travelling to the US several times a month. Let him off the hook and told him to apply for a TN when he comes back. He’s Caucasian (born and raised in Canada), so might’ve played out differently if he was a different race lol

We have a few people on our team that are not Canadian citizens and we don't staff them on projects where US/international travel is required.

The special visa is the L1 visa. H1b is a lottery and would take too long; for L1, you usually have to have been with your company for at least 1 year.

You need work visa for that

Hi all. Looking for advice. I’m trying to decide between 2 job offers (same salary) but different positions. One is a study director (essentially a project manager for a medical device company) and the other is in Quality Assurance (medical device company as well). Study director position company is slightly smaller but growing. I really want growth possibilities and a good career future. Any advice?

Hi all. I’m making a career shift from graphic design to project management. I’ve spent the last 3 months interning as a PM at a small (<15 people) marketing agency; reported to our account manager, worked closely with the co-owners; exceeded expectations. I received a full-time offer: head of PM, reporting to one co-owner, on equal footing with my summer supervisor; $40k base. Looking at local industry standards, average sits around $75k base. Can I reasonably negotiate and ask for $60k base?
