Ask a Canada Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
No problem, thanks for the quick response. So to clarify. I currently reside in the US and work for a company in the US.
My boyfriend is a US citizien, lives in Edmonton and works for a Canadian company.
I am looking to move up to Edmonton shortly to live with him. I have the opportunity to continue working in my current job remotely, so I would still be an American, working for an American company, but living in Edmonton.
Legally, is that even possible? I don't know how it would work in terms of US and Canadian law, etc.
We are planning on getting married soon, so I would be able to get on his work visa and get a job up there if needed, but we do plan on coming back to the US at some point, so if I could continue working for my company, that would be an ideal set up.
Does that make sense? Let me know if you need any more info from me.
One more question then. How would I be able to stay in the country? Aren't you only allowed to stay up there as a visitor for 6 months at a time? Would I have to get married to him right away to ensure I can stay up there?
I know the laws are a little weird, but I just wanted some preliminary information so I can start to figure out what I need to do.
Thank you for the help so far!
Awesome. I had a feeling we would have to get married right away in order for me to stay, but being able to work for a US company still is great news!
Do you pratice in Edmonton?
