Here’s the situation. My wife is a Canadian citizen and in the USA as a permanent resident with a green card. I am a US citizen, born here. For a whole number of reasons, we want to move back to Canada. I will be able to continue to work for my employer in the USA by telecommuting (working on-line remotely). I can’t seem to find much in the way of proper procedure. So I have these questions:
- Can I enter Canada as a temporary resident and then file for permanent residency while there or should I go for permanent residence off the bat?
- How can my wife sponsor me as her husband?
- Can her parents sponsor me?
- Since I’ll be working for a US employer albeit remotely, do I need a work permit of some sort?
I suppose that there may a whole bunch of other things to ask too, but I don’t know what they are. Has anyone else had any similar experiences?
