Business Visitors

Business visitors to Canada do not require a Canadian work permit. A business visitor is a foreign national who comes to Canada to participate in international business activities, but who will not enter the Canadian labour market. Canada is one of the world’s largest economies, welcoming thousands of short-term business visitors each year. Canada strives to ensure that international business visitors can come to Canada on business trips. Subject to the nature of the work, as well as the individual’s nationality, certain business visitors can enter the country to conduct business or trade activity without needing a work permit.

Business visitors to Canada requires a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA).

Permitting international business individual to do business in Canada is important for the continued economic growth of the country. Additionally, countries that have trade agreements and strong economic partnerships with Canada generally allow Canadian business visitors to access their countries as smoothly as possible. Visa reciprocity is a vital aspect of Canada’s business outlook and economic success.
