Not true. The contract is valid wherever it's defined to be valid. I sign Global agreements regularly.

The contract may be valid between the two parties that signed it but is irrelevant in that it does not have the power to alter Canadian law. The fact that someone signed a contract in the US to travel to Canada and work doesn't mean the Canadian immigration have to let them in to work.

Exactly right...and my direct experience in another industry. It means diddly squat what the signed contract dictates...if you are going into a foreign country to work, you must adhere to the immigration laws of that foreign country...no matter what your contract says.

As happened the last time this went around, you are not interested in finding out the truth, just in defending your view that a work permit is not required. Your view seems to be based purely upon your idea of how you would like it to be, rather than the actual laws, and your arguments make no legal sense.

It would take you a few minutes with Google to find out the truth, or to call the appropriate Canadian office that deals with these matters. This has repeatedly been suggested to you, yet you have never done the simple thing that would give you the answer, I can only presume this is because you know that would give you the wrong answer and leave you no straws to clutch at.

^^^ This.

Misunderstood your point as we have been in agreement through this whole thread. No contracts can circumvent the law.

Ive been wondering about this. I am a Canadian citizen but living in the states. I have lots of friends in Canada but I havent marketed to them or others because of not knowing the rules. I keep meaning to ask customs when I get there and after 17 hours in the car I just want to get where im going to sleep. :D

Not really applicable to this topic (which is about foreigners travelling to a country without a work visa). You are a Canadian citizen so obviously you can market to your friends there and work in Canada.

After reading that article my only question is...did they get to keep the photos?

Interestingly if you look closely at the company involved this was actually tourism. It was a photo workshop, which means most of the people there were on holiday - travelling to exotic locations to shoot interesting landscapes/bikini-clad women. Only the guides could really be considered to be working and thus in breach of their visa.

Interesting thought Dan. You can imagine from an immigration perspective though that determining who was there for what purpose might not have been paramount to the authorities. Another issue that could have come into play is the fact that even though Bali is a vacation paradise for many it remains part of an extremely conservative country. Bali is a little more liberal than the rest of the country but even there public affection between couples is frowned upon. One could well imagine that authorities felt the country was better off without a group of foreigners partaking in a pro looking shoot of bikini clad women. What their interpretation of events was is pure speculation on our part and likely very different from theirs. First rule of traveling? Respect the locals. Basic rule of photography? When you photograph make sure you're doing it legally.
