There's a crucial difference between being contracted by a Canadian company and being hired (as an employee) by a Canadian company. An employee of a foreign company who goes to the US as a representative of that company to see to their interests there, in a manner integral to the foreign company's business outside the US, is allowed to do so on a business ...

The official help for this question indicates that it is asking if you have ever applied for a visa to Canada. Select yes if, in the past, you submitted an application to come to Canada, such as a study permit, work permit or visitor visa. If you answer Yes to this question, you'll be asked for your Unique Client Identifier, visa or permit number. ...

I got an urgent-processing passport recently. The rules are here. I don't think there's an official cut-off time, but I showed up as early as I could in the morning just in case, recommend the same to you, since even when I showed up early there was already a line in the urgent category. You need proof of travel (airline printout with reservation number is ...

I applied for an ETA a couple of weeks ago, and had been twice under the VWP before. I put "Yes" and left the UCI/Visa/Permit number blank. Didn't seem to matter, got an approval almost instantly.

You can buy the ticket from United, and it will be on "United Stock" (the e-ticket will start with their numbers, once upon a time it would literally have been printed on paper with their logo) even though it will be on "Air Canada metal" for the first and possibly second leg. It will be called something like United 4321 operated by Air Canada. This is how ...

Certainly Porter Airlines falls under this designation: they fly from a secondary airport (which is very rare in Canada), the Billy Bishop Toronto City Airport. Also, instead of flying into Detroit airport they fly to Windsor -- there are only two non-seasonal scheduled flights from Windsor. Three from tomorrow because Porter adds a flight to ...

You can store luggage at the Toronto Coach Terminal, i.e. the bus station. They still have luggage-lockers there last time I was there (spring 2015). Source: Yelp

There are more than a few prepaid service alternatives in Canada, none of which are (IMO) really good value but nearly all of which will sell you a dumb phone to use. For a particular example Koodoo Mobile sells a basic phone for C$96, including the SIM card and a C$20 service credit. The Mobile Shop, 104 Starrs Road, Yarmouth may sell this. Looking at ...

It looks like the answer is no. The informative paragraph: If you are a non-resident visitor to Canada, you cannot claim a rebate of the goods and services tax/harmonized sales tax (GST/HST) that you paid for all purchases made in Canada. The visitor rebate program for GST/HST was replaced on April 1, 2007, with the Foreign Convention and Tour ...

In Vancouver: yes. However, currently this is a very bad deal because the cabbie will offer a 1:1 exchange rate so you are paying 20% more. Source: personal experience.

Yes she can. Green card holders do not need a visa to visit, only their green card when cruising (though it wouldn't hurt to have her passport with you as well). http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/helpcentre/answer.asp?qnum=593&top=16

I would just put the amount of time you are actually planning on staying in Canada. The important thing is that you don't overstay the date stamped in your passport. Anything else is not really the truth, and that can get you into trouble. Suppose they look at your stuff and you have things associated with going to the U.S.- your credibility could be in ...

Most visitors to Canada can be granted a stay of up to six months (fr) from the date of entry. But the border officer may decide to grant a shorter stay in some circumstances. A border services officer at the port of entry in Canada will determine how long you can stay in Canada. Most visitors are allowed a six-month stay from the day they entered ...

(not knowing any more details than what you give us) Maybe you are one of many cases of duplicate identity in the Homeland no fly list that will generate a false positive. You need to get as much official documentation of your citizenship you can get your hands on and check with airlines (or maybe the DHS or the Canadian equivalent) to see if you are on ...

Canada isn't part of any "ESTA area"; ESTA concerns just the US. There's a regulation aimed at preventing people from resetting their ESTA duration-of-stay clock by making short trips to Canada, the Caribbean, or Mexico, but you don't need to be concerned about that because you're not doing that. Rather, you are residing temporarily in Canada, and ...

No, you can't, because no such airlines exist. [Transport Canada] requires domestic air services operators [...] to be majority-owned and controlled by Canadians. [ref] You could book a flight from Vancouver to LA on a US airline, of course. And might be able to book a flight to LA from Toronto via Vancouver through a US airline (through codesharing) ...
