For example, you can enter the U.S. as a nonimmigrant to search for work for a specific period of time. Once in the U.S., you "are restricted to the activity or reason" for which your nonimmigrant visa was issued. If you do get a job in the U.S., you will be required to have the following: a permanent resident card (also known as a green card); have an employment authorization document (work permit); and an employment-related visa which allows you to work for a particular employee.
If you seek to become a permanent worker in the U.S., then you may be able to get "preference" for a worker visa, depending on your skills. However, there are some recent policy changes that can make it more difficult for Canadians to work in the U.S., so make sure you consult existing rules before filing paperwork.
