Canadians working in USA under TN status, do I need to pay Canadian CPP

I am not declaring as non-tax resident for Canada, if I have an annual 150,000 income in USA, how much CPP and EI should pay to Canadian tax revenue agency?

If you are an employee of the US firm, then you pay no CPP/EI, you pay the US versions instead.
If you are a self-employed, you pay CPP on your CDn taxes.

Be careful, if you live and work in US, you are no longer Cdn resident, and cannot general "choose" to remain Cn tax resident. CRA forces you out.
