Yeah, and vice versa.

Basically, after the person gets all their approvals, then they get their smartpass so they can go across the border w/out the security check (for frequent travellers).

I know that the guy who I worked with from Windsor got paid in American Dollars and drove in from Windsor everyday. Not sure what else you are wondering about and I know I'm not too familiar with the system to answer too many questions, but it's not an unusual occurance in this area.

It's usually the other way around , Canadians coming over here to work but I'm sure their suffering along with the rest of us except for nurses . We have a shortage of nurses in the tri-county area and many Canadian nurses are employed here . You could probably stop in at the Canadian customs and they may be able to answer some questions . Keep in mind that in June laws will take effect where anyone crossing will need a passport or equivelant like a '' enhanced drivers license '' for which the State Of Michigan are dragging their feet . As of one month ago when I visited the S.O.S. , they told me they haven't heard any news on when they will start issuing these . I belong to a site Connect2Canada (http://www.connect2canada.com/home-accueil/ - broken link) which is basically run by the Canadian Embassy in D.C. for Canadians working and living in the U.S. , they also have a Facebook site and many others . I personally have a small website I started on MSN Groups now at Yuku thats a joint U.S./Canadian topics type , but I'm not sure I've ever run into that question of Americans going to work in Canada . The site above may or may not help you out , but your best bet would be to stop in at Customs on both sides and ask questions
