      Labas visiems.
      As gyvenu Atlantoje, kuri yra Georgijos valstijoje, JAV. Gyvenu Statuose jau 15 metu, bet visa laika norejau ir tebenoriu gyventi Kanadoje (Toronte). As - muzikantas, pianistas/klavisininkas su aukstuoju muzikiniu issilavinimu ir ~ 30 metu profesionalios patirties.
      Gal kas galetu man patarti, kaip geriausia surasti toki darbdavi Toronte, (lietuvis, rusas, kanadietis, dar kas nors - neturi reiksmes) per kuri butu galima gauti darbo viza, o paskui ir permanent resident kortele ? As taip pat pats kuriu ir irasineju muzika.

        Sveikas,

        Toronto is a good choice, because it is a HUGE metropolitan area (much
        larger than Atlanta; even larger than Chicago); and, there are large ethnic
        populations there -- notably, each in their own 'neighbourhoods'.

        To obtain a Canadian Work Visa, or for permanent residence:
        there is the important concept of "skilled worker" (a legal term) ...

        Although musicians are certainly 'skilled',
        it might be easier to find work, and to qualify under 'skilled worker',
        if you sought work as:
        --music teacher (at any level, secondary schools or private schools), or
        --as an 'administrator' (any level) at an institution associated with music
        ...
        or
        --possibly as a journalist (regarding music), or some Internet-type work
        (regarding to music), or for a 'recording company' (audio/video).

        Once you have the Work Visa, for something 'connected to music', then it may
        be possible for you to perform music, since performance of music is 'part'
        of the work that you have permission to do.

        Also, once you have Permanent Residence (perhaps also 'Temporary
        Residence'), you can legally do ANY work.

        If you are a US citizen, you are entitled to be considered a 'Seasonal
        Visitor' to Canada; this means that you may legally remain in Canada for 180
        consecutive days, then you must leave Canada ... but, you can return (even
        in only one hour !!) for another 180 days ... Of course, worldwide, some
        music performers work on a 'cash basis', where there is no 'paperwork' ...

        When entering/leaving Canada/US: be certain to have *complete and valid
        identification (etc.) documents*, especially showing your right to be in the
        US.

        Good Luck !
        Best regards,
        K
        PS--parts of Canada with small populations (in the West), may also provide
        opportunities, because there may be fewer people with your skills, so they
        have a greater need for 'foreigners' ...

Paprastai vietose, kur gyvena nedaug zmoniu, galimybes tokiems, kaip as yra mazesnes ("nera, ir nereikia" ), todel mano specialybej reikalingas didmiestis.

            Hello,
            My Lithuanian is really not sufficient for me to understand exactly what you
            are writing.
            Also, when dealing with US/Canada, it is best to discuss in English, because
            the 'concepts' (and 'legal terminology') are not readily translatable into
            another language; and, more problems to translate back into English !
            However, I think (from 10 years ago) that Canadian 'seasonal visitor' is
            only for US 'citizens'; the law is not reciprocal in US for Canadian
            citizens ...
            [Also, perhaps your computer is not set to 'unicode'; I think that you are
            not receiving (and also cannot send) those letters of the non-English
            alphabet that have 'diacritical' (accent) marks; so, you see/send
            'hieroglyphics' !! :) ...]

              Not a problem. :)
              I can write in English too. :)
              Just wondering, what is the difference between Seasonal Visitor and Regular Tourist? Also: does Seasonal Visitor applies to American Legal Residents ? (Green Card holders) ?
              Now, the free translation of some of my previous reply:
              Usually in places, like small towns, rural areas the demand for people, like me are not too big. (We don't have it - we don't need it), therefore my speciality (-ies) are mostly for large metropoliten areas, such as Toronto. + Toronto is a City of my Dreams for a loooong time too. (you can laugh, if you want, I'll understand).
              My question is: Do you know anybody, who could provide me with the job(s), you mentioned in your previous reply? (of course, only, if he/she will be willing to). This would help a lot.
              Yes, my computer is set on Western. In order to use specific letters of Lithuanian alphabet, I use virtual lithuanian keyboard. However, it can reproduce all of them, because Lithuanian language is added to operational languages of my browser.
              I usuaully use "web version" of Lithuanian language with standard Latin alphabet, except very special occasions.

                Hello again,

                --I do not know of any Canadian legal term 'Regular Tourist'; I think that
                the legal term is 'Tourist'. Tourists who are *citizens* of certain
                countries (including the US, but probably not LT) do not require a visa to
                visit Canada; however, the 'term' of the visit is not long (always less than
                6 months; may be limited to 'x' number of days in a 360/365 day period).
                Therefore, it seems that you would need a 'Tourist Visa', to 'visit' (not
                including 'work in') Canada.

                --There is another type of visa: 'Business Visitor' -- which may be of
                interest to you, because it would be this type of Visa (which is 'temporary'
                -- a 'short' period) that enables artists (and others) to enter Canada to
                perform (etc.) for remuneration (money !). However, such a "Business
                Visitor" visa would be to perform for/at a *particular* event, *not* to
                enable other (subsequently contracted) performances, which were not listed
                on the visa application.

                --There is also 'Student Visa' -- to attend a school/college/course in
                Canada. This does not entitle to 'work' in Canada. However, there is some
                possible exception, where the Canadian school requires certain 'work', as
                part of its course requirements.

                --There are some other types of (temporary, short-term) visas; probably not
                important to you.

                --With any visa, to any country, the most important considerations are: (1)
                the visitor can financially support him/herself during the visit, (2)
                certainty that the visitor will leave (!!) -- meaning 'substantial' contacts
                in another country, that shows that the visitor will not remain beyond the
                visa period.

                * * *
                --A "Seasonal Visitor" (which is not a visa, and no 'document' is available
                to recognize such status) is a person who usually has some type of 'regular'
                place of residence in Canada (although that could be a hotel !). The main
                advantage of this 'designation' is to enable the importation to Canada (from
                the US) of household furnishings and personal 'effects', without the payment
                of any duty/taxes. And, such may provide advantages for the tax-free return
                of such items to the US.

                --I believe that 'Seasonal Visitor' is limited to US citizens. However, my
                info is *old* -- for the 13 years before I came to LT (7 years ago).

                * * *
                --I think that Toronto would be an excellent choice for your profession.
                But, I think that Canada is somewhat different (e.g., than the US), in that
                there is a significant Canada-wide interest/funding for cultural events to
                be brought to smaller cities, and some very-small cities. ["We don't have
                it; we want it; we shall have it."] Also, the French-speaking province of
                Quebec (especially the cities of Montreal and Quebec city) have significant
                cultural programs, in which many non-Canadians perform [including on the
                streets (!!) [local 'permit' required), especially during the many festivals
                (year-round)].

                --Perhaps, you need a Canadian 'agent' (for performing artists) !!

                * * *
                --I do not have any remaining performance/artist contacts in Canada.

                * * *
                --Let us be clear about one important thing: 'employment offers', to be
                used to obtain a visa, should be REAL, not any 'favour' from someone who
                will provide a piece of paper, where there is no actual intention of
                employment. Do not confuse with 'letter of invitation', from the Soviet era
                !!
                :)

                * * *
                --In my original message to you, there was a 'footer' that had some LT words
                (with letters having diacritical marks); when you replied to my message, my
                footer had all of the diacritical-mark letters changed to nonsense
                characters -- making those word(s) unreadable ... FYI: I think that this
                is because of something called "unicode settings"; I really don't know (but,
                I think that it is unrelated to 'web browser', 'virtual keyboard', or 'web
                version'; whatever) ... when I came to LT, I asked my neighbour, a
                16-year-old, to fix this problem with my desktop computer; in 1 minute, he
                did; I have no idea what he did (!!!) ...
                :)

                --Good luck !

                Best regards,
                K
