How long can a Canadian remain in the USA?Region: Ontario Answer # 1097
Canadians can usually stay in the United States for a maximum of six months (about 182 days), during a 12-month period. The allowed time spent in the USA can occur during one trip or it could be the sum of several trips.
Canadian citizens require a visa to enter the USA if they are going to visit for longer than six months, or if their visit is for reasons other than pleasure.
