I have a 4 year degree (BBA) that I haven't ever really applied.  The pay is good, but the travel is still a bit too much 60 despite no longer doing CAT which was about 90 of travel at times.

0 Replies and 1161 Views NAFTA TN1 permits  1161  0 Started by  olderthendirt With the likely hood of NAFTA being cancelled there is a question as these permits were introduced as part of NAFTA . Lately a lot of US adjusters have been working north and I assume they all got TN1 permits. As always a few Canuks work south, especially when it a busy year.   Will we be able to cross the border to work in the future
