I think you also have to pay income tax in Canada. It's a problem a lot of poker players with hefty winnings in the USA face actually.

I have no problem paying Canadian taxes or US taxes. But if I have to pay both, then it's not worth it to me. With the little research that I did, looks like about 34-45%.

I asked the question on an expat forum and someone replied that they pay about $50k in taxes on about $180k salary. That's a good chunk.

The position comes with a 3 year work permit for Canada with the option to apply for permanent citizenship. I wonder if there is a difference in taxes. Work permit versus citizen?

Still a lot of taxes. Granted citizens get the free healthcare BUT if you need an elective surgery (knee, hip replacement, etc), you can wait months. If its critical then you go right in.... That's one of the reasons the taxes are so high.

Google Fort McMurry oil field jobs. That area is hurting for workers. It's Canada's version of our North Dakota. Lots of videos on YouTube about it also.
