Canadians are so friendly I'd like to be one...

On my sister's behalf: What is the best chance for my husband (and therefore me) to immigrate to B.C.? He is 53 (not good according to the Canadian point system), and has a great offer of work from a friend in Victoria who is a designer/builder of homes. My husband would be hired as a foreman, as he's a highly skilled and experienced carpenter, and is capable of managing and training crews. His formal education doesn't go beyond high school, his English language skills are good (but not his French), he has no criminal record, and he's in very good health. [more inside]

Deadline for claiming small business expenses on income tax

I'm a Canadian who has very recently bought a pre-owned computer for a business I'm starting. Can I claim it in the upcoming income tax?

Montreal to Toronto in Feb driving filter

Canadian travel in February filter: We'll be doing some college tours of Canadian colleges, including McGill and University of Toronto. To see these places AND impress upon my daughter the reality of what COLD weather feels like (we live in California), I'm thinking of taking her up to Montreal and Toronto between Feb 17 - 21. Cheap flights are available to Burlington (close to Montreal) and Buffalo (close to Toronto). Is it possible to drive from Montreal to Toronto in February? Or is it so snowy and blizzardy that this is ridiculous, and we should take the train or fly? Airfares seem high, but maybe I'm just not looking at the right flights. Any suggestions as to how to cram visits into those places during mid-Feb?

Take a break. See the lake. Go shopping. Where?!?!

LongShotFilter: About 10 years ago I remember seeing a great billboard up on the side of the east-bound Trans-Canada highway somewhere between Falcon Lake, MB and Kenora, Ont. The words on the sign were simple: Take a break. See the lake. Go shopping. Does anybody have a picture of this billboard by any ridiculous chance? I believe it was a local billboard promoting the Kenoa and Lake of the Woods area in general, I don't believe it had specific ties to any particular place of business. This phrase has been a running joke among friends since the first time we saw it, but in the recent times I have gone back to Kenora, it was nowhere to be seen. Bonus points for the same verbage from a sign somewhere else.

How to deal with fees for Canadian checks?

Banking question: I have a small business in the US, I live in the US, I'm a US citizen. A number of my clients are in Canada. Everytime they send me a check, my local bank has to take a flat $10 out of it - even if its in US funds. Most of these checks are less than $50, so that's a pretty big hit. Apparently this $10 fee is not just my bank, but from their processor. I know I could ask my clients to pay in paypal, but a lot of them aren't set up to do it that way, and I'm reluctant to make them change. I emailed a canadian bank, thinking I'd just mail a deposit off once a month, and then every few months transfer funds, but I need to be there in person to set up the account. Do I just need to insist that clients use paypal? Are there other options I'm not thinking of? Any advice would be welcome.
