    You could probably get about the same in CAD.

      No really, Amazon compensation is different from country to country. I hear from an SDE1 that moves from Seattle to Vancouver that his TC when down more than 30%

      What @AEpF50 said. You keep already allocated RSU vests, but future allocations and base may be adjusted based on prevailing rates in the new country.

    Ah so the best case is to get the same base salary!

    Most probably you’ll keep your base but in CAD. And you get to keep your stocks too.
    So drop would be the difference in exchange rate
