Working remotely from Canada on tourist visa? I am planning to take a 15 day trip to Canada from US but most of that time I will be at my relatives place and not going out much. I was thinking I'll work from there for a week and take rest off? Tourists are generally not authorized to work but this is remote work and my employer has no offices in Canada.

How would Canada know you are remote working? I wouldn’t bother

That's what I thought too but immigration advised to take PTO which I am not inclined to do.

It would be illegal but the IRS/CRA and Immigration have bigger fish to fry. That said, you already brought unwanted attention by talking to Immigration who advised against it.

I went to Canada many times for work and pleasure. I was drunk one time coming in and told immigration I was a consultant. Wrong answer! I went to the special line. They take you working there very seriously. You are a tourist. What you do on your computer, however, while you are there, is up to you.

Why do people find it so hard to have different opinions for political topics?? E.g. I'm black but I'm pro immigration, pro choice, pro-social safety net and anti-gun but...

I used to be a D but I'm now independent and this "with me or against me" vibe is toxic af
