So after soft landing what’s the maximum time one has to move to Canada permanently?
People can spend upto 3 years, but not a day more, outside Canada after they land, without losing their residency obligation. However I know people have gotten questioned (not too much), if they stretch it beyond 2.5 years (in the infrequent event that CBSA agent even checks it). It becomes hard after 2.5 years because now you cannot travel anywhere for long duration without risking RO.
What if a person owns a leased vehicle at the time of final move
Not sure, might wanna ask the leasing company.
A bit about me, I’m on my h1b and have a job in Detroit. I’m thinking of moving to Canada for good but have a 3 year h1b left. So I’m thinking why not move to Windsor and come to work in USA daily ? Anyone doing a similar thing?
That shouldn’t be a big issue (at least on the Canadian side), since if you’re coming back to Canada on same day it should be counted in your physical presence/residency.
I would check on the US side, whether it’s OK to do this everyday on an H1B, since now you’re not exactly living in the US.
