Hi, I think it would fall under conference, trade show, meeting, event. The company is Sabre Airline Solutions. I would be a product expert meeting with airlines. I would also have to attend training and meetings with my co-workers.

Ok. Then I would file for a B-1 business visa. Here is a link:

https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en/visit/visitor.html

This should cover that sort of activity while just using your Canadian passport wouldn't.

If it is anything outside of that, then you should look into the TN professional visa or the L-1 visas. Here are some links:

https://www.uscis.gov/working-united-states/temporary-workers/l-1b-intracompany-transferee-specialized-knowledge

Those would cover working in the U.S.

Also, should you need to chat on the phone, private email or need help reviewing documentation, I am happy to do so for a small additional cost.
