IMMIGRATION RESTRICTIONS -
This section provides a general overview of immigration solutions for foreigners entering Canada as business visitors or temporary workers, including basic information about the visa application and work permit application process in Canada. The application of immigration rules varies based on several factual and personal factors. Therefore, eligibility for temporary status or permanent residence must be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
BUSINESS VISITORS (TEMPORARY RESIDENTS) -
The admissibility of a foreigner to enter Canada as a tourist or business visitor is governed by the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act and its Regulations.
Any foreigner wishing to enter Canada must be admissible and must be in possession of a valid travel document. Possible grounds of inadmissibility are the commission of or conviction for a criminal offense, the involvement in criminal activity, human rights violations or organized crime, national security or public health concerns, or financial reasons.
Generally, business visitors must maintain their principal residence abroad, they must be able to sustain their financial needs for the entire duration of their temporary stay, and they must intend to leave Canada at the end of their authorized stay.
