Can Canadians work in the USA?Region: Ontario Answer # 1041
Yes, with the proper work authorization depending on the employment situation and status, Canadians can work in the USA. The type of work authorization depends on an individual’s education and employment situation, and the type of work they will be doing in the USA.
In order for a Canadian citizen or permanent resident to work in the USA, you must first have a job offer from a USA employer. There are several categories of USA work visas that Canadians are eligible to work under:
- H-1B Visa Temporary Work
- TN Visa – NAFTA Professional (now CUSMA)
- L-1 Visa – Employee Transfer
- O-1 Visa – Extraordinary Skills Visa
A criminal record will prevent you from entering the USA or obtaining your USA immigration status. To erase your Canadian criminal record, call toll-free 1-888-808-3628 or learn more at Pardon Partners. It’s easier than you think.
