Default Considering employment in Canada (a few questions)


I've learned of a job in Canada that I've already started
to apply for. I'm a native of the USA and intend to stay
a USA citizen. I've not dealt with these issues before and
could use lots of information to help sort out what I need
to do and whether or not it is a good idea for me personally.

The basic reason for considering the position is that
it would be near a family that I met in Florida a few years
ago while working with them. He was here on a one or two
year visa from Canada. He moved back to Canada with his
wife from the USA.

While this relationship was the source of hearing about the
position, it is also part of the career path that I am
interested in. The company also has its main office in
the USA, so they will be familiar with what I need to do.
At the moment I'm still hoping to get another interview.

I know that I should start the process for getting a
passport visa. I travel to Canada, and Mexico often
and the birth certificate plus driver's license routine
is getting old.

The position is a combination of management and
software engineering. I presume that under NAFTA there
isn't much of a problem with that.

I've started to look for information on taxes that both
countries will want. I will want to get reasonable health
insurance and so far have very little information on how
to obtain such protection in Canada and what support may be
offered by the company. I will also need to gauge expenses
and see if it is reasonable for me to make such a move.

I have friends and family in the USA so I plan on visiting
the USA often. How will this affect my employment and
border crossings (air)? I understand from working with
others working here that I may need to periodically return
to the USA for an extended period to maintain citizenship.

As I work my way through the usa.gov and other sites
what else should I be looking for? I'm trying to be
prepared to ask the relevant questions as the process

Thank you for your help,
