Is it correct to say: the federal government [of Canada] introduced an Act? Looking for correct terminology to fit my sentence

I am not sure if this is the right question for this site. I asked a similar question in WordReference.com which resulted in this query (I have modified my question).

This is how I want to word it:

In view of such problems, the federal government in 1918 introduced the Employment Offices Coordination Act and subsequently created the Employment Service of Canada (ESC).

Question: Is it correct to say the Federal government introduced the Act and created the department of ESC?

The book (No Fault of Their Own, James Struthers, 1983) that I am using as reference uses different terms:

The Union government developed two [one of which is that Act] programs…

Through it [ESC] Ottawa established a link with the nation’s labour markets…

Like much of the Union government’s subsequent legislation in housing, education…, the ESC was financed through conditional grants. Ottawa provided subsidy of $150,000…

The Dominion authorities were not willing to acept full responsibility…

the creation of ESC was an evidence of federal commitment to tackling unemployment…

To me it seems they are terms used to refer to Ottawa and that it might be okay to use federal government.

Others suggested that Canada’s federal government does not pass/enact Acts. Acts/Bills receive royal assent (they are correct). Here is my earlier effort: https://forum.wordreference.com/threads/tthe-federal-government-enacted-the-employment-offices-coordination-act.3493606/

They suggested the following sentence:

The Employment Offices Coordination Act was introduced/received royal assent/was passed in 1918.

But it did not work for me as it doesn’t say who was responsible in creating the Act. I am trying to say that the federal government responded to some problems with this Act.

Insect ID Montreal, Qc Canada

I found this bug in my kitchen, in front of my oven.
It has wings and moves quite slowly on the ground.

I can provide additional pictures if required.

Can somebody tell me what it is?

enter image description here

I have found an article on a local website that seems to say this is a carpet beetle even though it’s written bedbug right bellow it.

Canada- Is work from home possible in Canada on Intra Company transfer visa?

Re-posting in expatriates as suggested from travel stack-exchange

Is work from home possible in Canada on Canadian ICT visa – Intra Company transfer visa?

Is it required for the work permit holder to work from an office(work permit location) even if the rest of the team works internationally and the only benefit would be helping the Canadian business and providing better round the clock support.

I am trying to understand the various federal/provincial rules relating to working from a specific location or not while on Work Permit? I could not find any mention about work from home in any of the help sections.

Are there any province specific rules in play? Target provinces are Ontario and BC.

Anyone having a similar experience or information on Canada ICT visa?

Thank for the looking.

European traveler driving a rental car across Canada/US border and back

I’m a citizen of an EU member state traveling to a small city in Vermont. Looking at flight data, it seems that it would be quite a bit quicker to fly into Montreal (Canada) and then drive a rental car to my final destination in Vermont (and back), rather than getting a connecting flight into a small local US airport. I am slightly worried about the trouble I might get myself into by crossing a land border twice, though.

Can anyone give me an idea of what I’d be getting into in terms of:

  • Crossing time
  • Discomfort
  • Additional paperwork required

For both the outbound (Canada/US) and the return leg (US/Canada) of my journey, when compared to crossing the border at an international airport?

Also, do I need to take any special actions when I’m arranging a rental car if I intend to drive it over to the US and back?

Can i sort out my immigration/work visa during the time between flights in Canada?

I’m heading to Canada in January, flying from London to Kelowna, via a 6 hour stopover in Toronto,

I’m doing the IEC working holiday visa,

Does anyone know if its possible to sort out all the paperwork during my time between flights, or do i have to do it at the final destination? Ideally i’d like to use the stopover time productively so i can get out of the airport quicker at the end,

Thanks!

Can a Canadian Citizen live in america while working in Canada officially via remote (online work)

Specific/Extended Question

What legally counts as working in the States while living there (technically vacationing) while visiting for the legal vacation period that a Canadian passport allows.

For example, would freelancing as a Canadian on an freelance website, would working remotely for a Canadian company, would working remotely as a Consultant in Canada, how about consulting as a Canadian Company to american companies? This is obviously a spectrum of entering the american market ending with selling services directly to Americans as a Canadian while filing business taxes and income tax in Canada.

My Relevant Background Knowledge

I know that while staying in the US on a passport you cannot stay more then 6 months before needing to either apply for an extended stay or returning to Canada.

I don’t know much about what else would be restricted while ‘vacationing’ in the US.

Reason for the question

I am a computer scientist, my current job can be (and is) done remotely.It is very easy to do jobs remotely in general either as a freelancer or simply accepting a remote job.

There are two reasons I’m interested in this. One is extended vacations and the other is a romantic interest I have in MD, USA.

Additional Personal Background

I previously lived in the states for four years due to my father being on exchange from the Canadian to US military. So I had a student visa and some form of diplomatic dependent status at the time (green passport).

I know you need a Visa to work in the states, but with the internet it seems plausible to legally work in Canada while residing in the states. I’m unsure of what would be considered working in the states though in such an online environment. For example I currently do some work that is technically consulting and am my own business. If I run a consulting business (just me) from Canada and targeted american clients that would seem to me definitely bad faith, but technically working in Canada.

Currently I am finishing my Bachelors of Computer Science in Canada so it is feasible that I could get a work Visa. I may be able to go work in the states through an exchange program as an intern as well this coming summer. After school I would like to go through the (I hear lengthy) Visa process while technically vacationing in the states and still making money working in Canada. This would be ideal in terms of discovering if my romantic interest is going to be something permanent giving me somewhat of a trial period. I realize marrying is a common way for people to become american citizens, but in my case I’m only interested in being an american if/while things work for me romantically.
