My wife may be getting a job just north (2 miles) of the U.S/Canada border in British Columbia.

My question, if anyone has experience with this, what are the pitfalls involved with living in the U.S. but working in Canada? Should we just move to Canada if she gets the job?

Gun control is like fighting drunk driving by making it harder for sober people to buy cars.

We have a guy at work who lives in the US (Blaine, WA) and works in BC. It works fine for him. Obviously there is the potential for a lineup at the border to slow the commute down, but other than that it's routine. I understand there is a decent number of people who go one way or the other across the border daily for work.

If she gets a Nexus pass the lineup is usually not more than 5 or 10 minutes, except for maybe holiday weekends etc.

Or you could just move to BC anyhow because it's a really nice place to live!

I think the biggest headaches will come in the form of tax implications. Talk to a tax specialist to understand what implications exist, both on the Canadian side and the US side.
