In rough terms, substantial presence means more than 121 or 122 days per year in the U.S. on average for the last three years. Any Canadian with that much time in U.S. must file Form 8840 with the U.S. government, to show a "closer connection" to Canada than the U.S., and the right to file only a Canadian tax return. Otherwise, the IRS will come looking for U.S. income taxes.

Does this also apply to illegals too ? The IRS could earn billions if it does !! They are here 12 months out of the year.

It's the IRS, not the CRA that puts the pressure.
Bad, evil IRS. Another reason not to visit US.
Stay in Canada. Nicer people in Canada, anyways. Great parks, too.
