Subject: Working in Canada with tourist visa
If someone with tourist visa want to work in Canada, how high are the chances he find a job without having working visa and if he do, how are the chances he´ll be catched and deported?

any legitimate employer must remit taxes for you which requires you to have a social insurance number. That counts you out immediately. If your employer pays you cash, and he gets caught...you both are in trouble so that can´t last very long.

If you get caught, are you willing to return home and risk being barred from entering Canada?

Also, about your question:

"If you get caught, are you willing to return home and risk being barred from entering Canada?" 100% positive, got a kid and wife that needs to eat, recieve medical services and study in a country whith no future but poverty. and i´m not going to beg for money or steal it, but I´ll work hard, if i get bad luck then i´ll go to another country peraphs Australia, New zealand or even to hell until I can assure my family´s economical future trough hard work, peraphs illegaly, cos I can´t afford to wait and pay fees of working visas :(

well, you have painted an interesting picture. what brings you to Canada? If you are being sponsored... and you have AIP you should be able to apply for your work permit.

If you are in Canada without documentation, then you are waiting to get caught... and trust me, you will eventually get caught and that will help your family nothing.

Well Hamster, i can understand your frustration of returning to poor country, but in Canada finding cash jobs is tougher than USA, but still you can find some jobs in Toronto, like construction worker, factory, farm worker etc. All the best

but the idea that those cash jobs will be enough to support a family is wishful thinking. It is not a life - especially if you think you can work in Canada, pay for a place to live and send money home.

truly my friend... it is not a life.

It is people like Hamster that divert the resources away from the legitimate causes who wait their turn in line for the working visa or PR like most of the rest of us. If indeed Hamster you are ready to make an honest go of it get in line and work in a country you are able to until your turn comes

don´t work cash job, you have no WCB protection. your employer could totally rip you off, without paying you nothing, what you gotta do?
Even comes with small injury like cut your fingers or bleeding, could you be able to see DR? no.
for your own safety, it´s just not worth it.

You are breaking the law regardless.

There are chances that you may get caught and YES if you do a CBSA officer can generate a report (44a) and you and your family will face a deportation order along with detention.

Find the way to legalize your status, the effort will pay off but not doing anything and living in the shades is not going to solve your problem.
