    Tax for Cnandian Revenue

    Canadian revenue agency will convert your US $ salary in to Candian $ & according to your residency status over there they will charge you tax,but you will get relief in tax what you paid to IRS( Us revenue).

    PR in Canada, work in US

    Hi Shahida,

    I am thinking of doing what you did as a backup... Do you need any additional permits in order to work in Detroit with a Canadian PR and living in Windsor?

    Also, how long did it take you to be approved for a PR, and how soon did you have to enter Canada after that?

    Thanks - I have spent a lot of time looking for answers.

    You dont need anything special other than the PR to live in Canada and a valid work visa to work in the US. I am not sure what the current processing times are but they used to take 18-24 months when applied from the US.

    You will need to land one yr from the date of the expiry or medicals which ever comes first. Once you land you have to spend 2 yrs in a 5yr window inside of Canada to maintain your PR.

    Shahida or anyone Please help me,
    1. How days are counted towards citizenship.
    If after landing I live at windsor with my family, and my kids join school there,
    and if I commute to Michigan daily or weekly and pay all required taxes. Will each day of my working in USA be counted or added to the total days of 1095 for canadian citizenship application or not...

    2. How canadain authorities know how may days I stayed where in US or in canada?

    Thanks for all the help

    1) Each day that you spend even 5 minutes in Canada will count towards citizenship. If you commute daily you will have 7 days per week counted. If weekly only 2 days of weekend.

    2) Onus/Responsibility is on you to prove that you were in Canada for X number of days not on Canadian or US immigration. You have to give proof.

    car insurance , credit cards, Gas receipts , ATM transactions etc. would help you in proving yoru residency in Canada . It is upon the judge/CIC to accept it or reject it if not convinced enough
