Post FAA instruction in Canada

Hello this is my first post here. I feel someone who is versed in Canadian ops would be able to answer this better, but all replies are welcome!

I am a FAA CFI who has worked in the USA as a flight instructor. Currently, I am working for a company in Canada who I do a little bit of for within the USA. I usually fly SR-22's. I have been asked by company personal about providing flight training while we go on our business trips to the USA. I know that I can provide flight training within the USA only in US registered aircraft and I have been working with AFSP to set things up. However, my question is what are the possibilities of conducting flight training in Canada (Departing and Arriving at canadian airports) under a FAA license in a USA registered aircraft to a Canadian student for the purpose of getting their USA private and instrument certificates? I have talked to the FAA and they don't have an issue with it, however, I have not been able to reach Canadian authorities on this subject and they fail to return my calls. This is my first attempt at providing instruction as an individual CFI. Does anyone know what the implications are with Canada here and what I need to do or where to look to find out if this is legal in Canada? Is this even possible?
I also have my Canadian CPL and IFR and wondering what are the possibilities of giving instruction in an C-registered aircraft within Canada? I am pretty sure I know the answer since I don't have my Canadian flight instructor licenses. But doesn't hurt to ask.

A US CFI can instruct in a US registered aircraft worldwide.

You would need a Canadian CPL to fly (and get paid) in a Canadian registered aircraft in Canada.

You would need a Canadian CFI to instruct in Canada in a Canadian registered aircraft.

If you can get the Canadian registered aircraft to the US, then your US CFI will allow you to instruct in that aircraft while in the US only.

You could not take the Canadian registered aircraft to Mexico without a Canadian CPL, and you could not instruct in that aircraft without a Canadian CFI.

What's this about only being able to get paid to fly an airplane with an N-number, internationally?

Not true.

A particular state may require their certification, which is why US pilots working abroad frequently are required to obtain a local certification or equivalency/conversion license, but it's not necessarily true.

The holder of a FAA pilot certificate is the holder of an ICAO compliant pilot certificate. Depending on the legal restrictions where one goes, one may end up being paid to fly the employers aircraft, without a need for additional pilot certification.

So far as providing instruction to a foreign student in a US aircraft, domestically or abroad, the same requirement exists for the instructor to vet the student. Doing so while abroad can complicate that.

You can hold a Canadian Licence and fly a US "N" registered airplane domestically within Canada, you can't go across the border.

Same as a US Certificate holder could operate a Canadian registered airplane Domestically within the USA.
