Canadian Business Visitor VisaMost visitors to Canada require a visitor visa to enter. There are several types of visitor visas, depending on the purpose of your visit to Canada. Each type of visitor visa varies in requirements and duration.
A business visitor is someone who comes to Canada on international business without actually entering the Canadian labour market. They are only in Canada temporarily, to enhance their business. For instance, they come in Vancouver to develop company relations, are conduct site visits or require training for a product or business function.
Business visitors are able to enter Canada with a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV), or visitor visa, which regulates the scope of activities permitted while in Canada.
As a business visitor, you are able to stay in Vancouver, or any canadian city for up to 6 months, during which time you may look for ways to grow your business, invest and advance business relationships. You are not permitted to work for a Canadian company while on a visitor visa in Canada. If this is the reason for your visit, or you plan on staying for longer than 6 months, you may require a work permit instead.
It is important to differentiate a business visitor from a business person, who comes to Canada to work under a free-trade agreement.
