Canadian Workamper Question


(Lyle Shaw writes)

I have been a subscriber to your subscription since I became aware of it, however as a Canadian RV workamper (just starting), have difficulty locating ads that apply to Canadians, as I do not believe we can work south of the border for other than an RV site, meaning, we cannot be paid for services other than a trade off for our site. Please correct me if I am mistaken.

And if that is the case, it would be great if the "Canadian Workamper" had a heading on your site.

Also, would it be worth your while to start a "Single Workampers" heading, or topic, as many of us are single? It would be a natural traffic builder for you if there were a heading relating to us, and a benefit to all.

Also, for those seeking workampers, it would be good to see postings expressing "single" or "couple", and would cut down on unnecessary email.

Thanks for lending your ear...

I am Canadian and will be spending 6 months of the year in the U.S. Do the campsites hire Canadians? If so, can we only do volunteer work?

Canadians Volunteering in US

Margaret S.

I was wandering if you could tell me, is it true that Canadians cannot workamp in the US any longer? My husband and I have been workampers for the past five years.

Canadians Work Camping in the USA


(Joan J. asks,,,)

Would you please investigate and confirm whether Canadian's can legally participate in the work camping program in the USA? Joan Jones

Coleen, the working while RVing editor comments:

Hi Joan,

I'm not a lawyer, so I cannot give you legal advice.

I have researched it at length and my understanding of it is that Canadians may legally work in the United States only if they have the correct paperwork, such as a work visa. It is my understanding that typical working RVers, such as those working in RV parks, cannot readily get the visas. It's my understanding that these are available for professional sports people, professional entertainers, highly specialized workers, etc. So, for the most part, as I understand it, Canadian work campers cannot be legally employed in the United States.

As for volunteering at government and charitable non-profits, it appears that it varies. It seems some allow it and some don't. If you are interested in volunteering for a specific agency, you might call them directly and ask.

Oh, and for the rest of the disclaimer, since I am neither an attorney or tax expert, for legal and tax advice, I can only suggest that you consult with a lawyer or tax expert.

Canadians doing workamping in the US

Roy

I thought Canadians couldn't do workamping in the US? What do you think?

Coleen, the working while RVing editor comments:

Canadians can legally work in the USA if they have the required paperwork and permits. It is my understanding, however, that they cannot just show up and legally work the same way a citizen of the United States does.
