I lived illegally in USA 7 years ago. Never got a problem. I came back to my country and now I got offer a work permit for Canada as a truck driver to go from Canada to USA and VS. Would the fact that I lived in USA in the past be a problem to enter with a work permit for working purposes only?
You need to address this question to an immigration lawyer, though your perspective employer might want to do that for you.
Reading an answer on the Internet does not create an attorney-client relationship. You are represented by me when we have both signed a retainer agreement (on paper or electronically) and some money has changed hands. Usually, you will have been asked specific questions about your situation and all potential conflicts of interest will have been resolved. Until then, you have no more right to rely on this answer than if you read it in a novel or on LegalZoom.
This is a question for your Canadian immigration attorney or employer to answer. I have no idea how a Canadian work permit enables someone to drive a truck in the USA. I assume you would have a Canadian CDL license, and maybe that Canadian CDL allows driving trucks on US roads. I also assume your employer and their immigration attorney can answer your question. If I was them, I would ask you whether you have any criminal record in the USA, have you had a CDL in the past? Was it ever suspended or revoked? Did you ever get any DUI's? Etc. Good luck.
Peace be with you, and may love guide you.
Yes, that is definitely a problem. You need a full consultation with an immigration attorney to evaluate your options.
