A: You need to have permission to enter both countries such as a travel visa in order to travel back and forth. You will need a visa to travel to the U.S. unless you are on ESTA or Canadian. For specific questions on whether you can return on the type of status you currently appear to possess for staying in Canada, ask a Canadian immigration attorney.
