I am a German citizen with permanent residence and employment in Germany. My parents and my sister and her family live in Canada. My job allows me to work remotely from abroad so in the future I would like come to Canada as a visitor more often and longer. I will be working remotely for my German employer, being payed (and paying taxes) in Germany. I plan approx. 6 week intervals.
CIC website says I can stay for 6 months. Does that mean 6 months straight or summed up over one year or what? Someone told me it's actually 180 days per year - but again: 180 days in one stretch? Or per calendar year? I also heard the version "maximum 182 days within any given 365 day period" and "max 180 days as an average within the past 3 years". But everyone I ask, Canadians or Germans, is just guessing and I cannot find any reliable info on the web.
Does anyone know the exact regulation or can point me to the info on the web?
