Sublime in Mississauga ... they have such at their disposal and have worked with us on some remarkable rooms in the Ontario area.
So big can't log his steampunk drill-press up there? Well all bets are off then!
For Big to work in Canada, he will have to have a work permit applied for, and paid for, by the homeowner. It can take upwards of 30 days to get the permit which will have to be in Big's hand as he crosses the border. In the application, the homeowner will have to document why there is no one else in Canada who can perform the work requested. The homeowner will also have to document that he/she has sought out Canadians (at least three), interviewed those others, and document the reasons why they were not qualified to do the work. Should Big then get a work permit and travel to Canada, he will need to document (make, model, serial number) the equipment he is bringing into Canada (at both the U.S. and Canadian sides) so that when he leaves Canada he won't be charged duty on the equipment in his vehicle. Canada *may* require he post a bond for the equipment which will be refunded when he exits the country and can show he is leaving with exactly the equipment he brought into Canada.
How do I know? Been there (more than once), done that.
Have fun. Edited by Dennis Erskine - 6/13/13 at 8:02am
