Actually, there is a very reasonable tax break available (from the Gov't of
Canada) for folks who are moving between cities to take a new job. Moving
and living expenses are covered 100 per cent and can be recovered in the
form of a tax rebate when you file your taxes for that calendar year. I do
NOT know whether this is available to American citizens applying for work
visas or immigration status in Canada; you would have to talk to a
representative of Revenue Canada to confirm that.
