Are there any Mefites that have worked in the US (as a US citizen) for a Canadian company? How does it work with taxes, benefits, etc? This is going to become a very relevant issue for my wife tomorrow, and Google has not been a lot of help in finding authoritative information. [more inside]
I was poking around the wage reports for various occupations provided by the government of Canada. I was wondering how useful the figures are for someone who is, say, negotiating a salary or trying to come up with a salary range to post a position. [more inside]

Ontario employment law: I'm quitting my job to go back to school full-time in September. I'm currently employed full-time as an engineer.

Is Canada a good place to go if you want a decent job and a good place to go for college?
I'm a U.S. citizen, curious about looking for work in one of Canada's major cities. I know that our neighbors to the north are bilingual and more of a socialist democracy than the U.S., but otherwise I'm pretty ignorant. I couldn't find all the provinces on a map, for example. What books and web sites should I read to learn more about Canada's politics, geography, history and culture? With more social welfare are job benefits different? Could I expect more time off than my current two weeks a year? Any advice you can give me to help me make a final decision on relocating?
