The government of Canada has a page discussing the definition of work in the context of work visas, which explicitly lists as an example of an activity that is "not considered to be 'work'" long distance (by telephone or Internet) work done by a temporary ...

The Big Bar Reaction Ferry and the Usk Reaction Ferry note specifically that they do not run when the water is "low or icy", running an aerial tramway (!) instead. The McClure Reaction Ferry also says "No service during ...

I know someone who is in the opposite situation: a US citizen and a Canadian PR (living in Canada) who has been traveling back and forth across the land ...
