I am a US citizen, in the process of applying for a Canadian residence visa (I plan to move to Canada).
Having a job offer in hand during the application process definitely would help my chances of being issued an Invitation To Apply (ITA, which is part of the process), and I would ideally like to have a job right from the day I move.
My line of work is very remote-friendly. Can I, as a US citizen, work from the US for a Canadian company? What specific legal and tax standards would I have to meet for the US and for Canada? And does active employment with a Canadian company count the same way as having a job offer from a Canadian company, in the immigration process?
