A friend of mine inquired last night, what it might take. He works at a retail store that has outlets in both Canada and the United States. Is it common for a large chain to allow cross-border transfers? I believe he would be considered a skilled worker, and the work he does for the retail store in question is considered a trade skill.
Beyond that, short of the company being willing to transfer him to a Canadian location, what other options would he have to work in Canada? Is there any way for him to work while on visitor status?
I have poked around on the CIC and CBSA websites, but I'm also looking for peoples' experiences in similar situations. Thanks in advance, MeFites!
