I would like some clarification on how long we can stay in the United States. I live in Ontario. Some people tell me six months, while others say seven months. I also heard that our Ontario health coverage expires if we are out of the province for more than six month. Is this true? Your […]

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, Here’s another question about the 182-day issue. We live in Vancouver and have a vacation home in Washington State. Unlike true snowbirds, we use it on many weekends through the year and most of the summer. I keep track of our days (for example, if we go down on Friday afternoon and […]

Immigration rules and taxation rules: two distinct sets of rules

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

Dear Bird Talk, I’ve read with interest the various letters to Bird Talk in issue 94 of CSANews. The clear, definitive answers to the various questions are very helpful…almost.

Subtracting Time From Six Months

Posted date : Nov 13, 2017

I sit in dismay, having read your response re: subtracting time from six months. You say that a fewer-than-30-day return to Canada cannot be subtracted when calculating total days allowed in the U.S. We have spent three to six months every year since 1994, always coming home for Xmas. Our time was not always the […]
