The following is taken directly from the Canadian Reciprocal Agreement with US amateurs.


“There is no need for paperwork or other formalities when exchanging visits between Canada and the United States. Under the terms of the agreement, the visitor must identify using his or her call sign followed by a call area suffix, e.g. VE3FRV/W9 or N9CFX/VE3.”


There does not seem to be any option for starting with VE1 and then signing N1UR.


Of course since you have a VE call, you wouldn’t know this as it would not apply to you when using your own VE call.

Actually, not so Ed,


VE1/W1VE or W1/VE1RM is the accepted international standard.   In the US and Canada, no authority is going to get bent out of shape if you do it the other way around.


Of course, I can't use either of these samples, because I'm licensed in each country.


73, Gerry W1VE & VE1RM
