Hi, I work for a company (headquarter in US) that has an office and is registered in Canada.
I am still waiting for the visa office in Buffalo to request the passport (applied through Campbell Cohen). If I land in Canada and come back to US. Would continuing working for my company count towards my residency in Canada since the company is registered in Canada?

6.2. Canadian business
The definition applies to both large and small businesses, and includes:
• federally or provincially incorporated businesses that have an ongoing operation in Canada;
• other enterprises that have an ongoing operation in Canada, are capable of generating
revenue, are carried out in anticipation of profit and in which a majority of voting or ownership
interests are held by Canadian citizens, permanent residents or Canadian businesses
• enterprises that have been created by the laws of Canada or a province
