Freelancer - providing Service to Canadian Market (Toronto)
I hope someone can share some experience/knowledge about being a foreign freelancer / entrepreneur providing service in Canada.
I have a sole trader company registered in Austria and doing technical short/long term project work for various companies as freelancer.
Due to personal reasons I will move to Toronto in March.2014
I read a lot of rules and regulations for foreign companies providing services in Canada.
As of now I come to the conclusion, that acc. to GATS - General Agreement on Trade in Services, you can acquire contracts with a max. period of 3 month once a year. You just need to show the contract in order to get a wok permit. (No LMO Needed)
My problem is that, 3 month is quite a short time and wonder if someone else hast experience with such a situation.
Is here anyone how is a foreign freelancer providing services to Canadian companies????
What are your experience???
Thank you so much in advance for your help.
