Default Living in Canada/Working in US

Hi guys

We're English, currently living in the US on OH's H1B and are in the very early stages of a move to Canada (FSW), by early stages, I mean me worrying if it will be possible! The reason for my worry is that my OH has some contracts in the US spread throughout 2010 and probably ongoing into future years. So, assuming we get PR, how does he legally cross the border - probably once a month?

Many thanks in advance

So long as he can maintain PR, a total of 2 years out of the preceding 5 in Canada should not be a problem. If he is a tax resident in Canada, would need to sort that bit out though. Crossing the border to work would require the correct doumentation for the US side.

So this looks like a B1 which if I'm understanding correctly, would have to be applied for when we're moved to Canada?

For the rest of the family who will want to visit the friends they've made while living here, I'm assuming it's a visa waiver at the border?

US visa waiver covers B1 status, if that's what he is really doing. If he is going beyond B1, he needs the right US visa.
