Hi all,
 
I understand that you can maintain Canadian PR while working abroad as long as it is for a Canadian company.
 
My question is how do you know that the company is a Canadian as per immigration requirements?
Who do I ask to confirm? I ask because I have a chance to go abroad with but with the Canadian branch of an international company.
 
If anybody know who I can refer to kindly forward the response.
 
Regards and thanks!

I believe you have to be hired in Canada, and then sent/transferred abroad. The company has to have its HQ in Canada....not somewhere else.

IF canadian office is just a branch, then i dont think that counts.

check www.cic.gc.ca

Here's the definition
See section 6.2

The definition applies to both large and small businesses and includes:

• other enterprises that have an ongoing operation in Canada, are capable of generating
revenue, are carried out in anticipation of profit and in which a majority of voting or ownership
interests is held by Canadian citizens, permanent residents or Canadian businesses; and

I friend of mine - her husband just received his 4 weeks after landing.
Call CIC and ask what the hold up is - might be a problem with photos or it's lost, etc - won't know unless you phone though

Before you buy a used car, it is always recommended that you have it inspected first.
Some garages might charge $100 - $200 for a pre purchase mechanical inspection but it could be worth it if they find $1,000's of dollars worth of problems you could be buying someone elses piece of junk.
definately worth the money to have it pre inspected.

You can also get a history of the car, something similar to a Car Fax in the US.NOt sure what they call here in Canada

CarFax is not as reliable as people think it is. Because they are hiding the facts just so they can get rid of the car (sell it off).

It's best to get the auto mechanics look at it.

Car fax has a class action against it in the USA. I seen a W5 report last year that showed Carfax in the USA and Canada is very unreliable with its reports.
