    Attempted Soft landing via Detroit Windsor tunnel but denied

    Only suggestion I have is to avoid Detroit Windsor border when you land next time. The officers in the border aren't super friendly.. just a personal observation. Try landing in Niagara falls . If your spouse has given biometrics, then she (or all of you) can wait from Canada after landing...

    AVR route back into the US from Canada but with a different employer's I797

    i don't believe they could ask that. an employer is petitioning you to work from a particular location in US, so they cannot question that part... moreover they understand that offices will reopen eventually.. if this was the case, nobody from Facebook or Google could ever get visa because they...

    Tax Obligations: Employed in the US (US payroll) working remotely from Canada

    All of the above is for non resident employees. Did you find anything for resident employees? You become Canadian resident from the day you enter Canada with an intent of settling there. It is not based on the number of days you stay. Also remember, even if your family stays in Canada, you'll...

    AVR route back into the US from Canada but with a different employer's I797

    If attorneys have opined that amendment is not required, then you might be good. But the biggest challenge in your case would be explaining this to CBP at the border. We have no way to know how they would interpret this. Anyways as you have decided to move, you need to take a leap of faith on...

    TD Bank -Cross border Account

    Those two accounts are sufficient. TD accounts are useful for transferring big amounts. Once you bring your USD to TD Canada USD account, you could use a service like knightsbridge to get it deposited as CAD in to a Canadian account. For small amounts, tranferwise should work well.

    Multiple residences (One in US and one in Canada)

    You can do this, but you'll have to transfer your license and import your car into Canada. If you say CBSA that you live in Canada which you will when entering during the weekend, they won't let you in with completing the import process. Once you change your license and car, your primary...

    hiding account number on bank statement

    Is it for IRCC? If so do you see any value in doing this given that they already have your entire personal profile like name, date of birth etc. If you still feel concerned, try to get the letter with account number hidden directly from bank and not to do any alterations in the documents that...

    Yes you can do that. Unless asked don't tell anything about this to them. 99% they won't ask about returning rental car. Uber is legally allowed to be taken for transit when heading for quarantine. Just go with your plans.
