Under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), qualified Canadian business professionals are able to obtain TN-1 status allowing them to work in the United States for a U.S employer, or, for a Canadian employer with pre-arranged U.S. contracts. There are 63 professions under NAFTA including: accountants, engineers, computer systems analysts, consultants, dentists, teachers, and graphic designers. TN-1 status has many advantages over the H-1B and other visas, as it is not subject to a numerical cap and can be processed in minutes at a qualifying inspection point. Presented by Jeremy Richards, this course provides an overview of the TN visa options available for both employee and employer. Mr. Richards is a partner at Richards & Kruger Immigration Law. His practice is devoted to U.S. immigration law, with a focus on helping businesses and individuals to obtain proper authorization to conduct business within the United States. With offices in Buffalo, NY and Toronto, Canada, Mr. Richards has extensive experience guiding Canadians and their employers through the TN-1 application process.
Excellent program, better than most.
As in-house counsel to a company that works with and employs Canadian nationals, this was very useful information to know. We usually refer immigration issues to outside counsel, but this is very useful in guiding and supervising their work.
