Are there restrictions on U.S. citizens who want to take on a part-time job while visiting Canada? I am going to be in Canada for the Toronto Film Festival and was planning to stay in the country for a couple of months after. I enjoy picking up occasional jobs in the service industry, computer work and freelance. It would be a great financial benefit to be able to take on the odd job. Not sure if I need a Canadian immigration lawyer to help me with the financial stuff.
