Canada welcomes you as a tourist. Every year, more than 35 million people visit Canada to enjoy the many opportunities Canada has to offer. Depending on where you live, and the reason for your visit, you will need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV). Temporary Resident Visas allow Foreign Nationals to enter Canada temporarily for either pleasure or business visits. With the exception of few countries, Foreign Nationals of all other countries must obtain a Temporary Resident Visa prior to entering Canada. Spouses and dependants of those who are temporarily residing in Canada might also be required to obtain a Temporary Resident Visa, depending on their country of origin. A Temporary Resident Visa does not permit a Foreign National to work while in Canada.
