Business Visitors

Canada is full of opportunities for people wanting to do business. Each year, there are thousands of international business visitors and investors who visit Canada to discover new business interests or continue existing business relationships. In the Business Visa program, foreign nationals can visit Canada for a specified duration to advance their business interests with top-class Canadian companies.
