Visit on Business - Immigration Canada

Visit on Business

​There are a number of reasons why an individual may come to Canada as a business visitor, including:
-Attending business meetings, conferences, conventions, fairs, etc
-Buying Canadian goods or services on behalf of a foreign entity
-Taking orders for goods or services
-Providing after-sales service, excluding hands-on work in the construction trades
-Being trained by a Canadian parent company for work outside of Canada
-Training employees of a Canadian subsidiary of a foreign company

The Business Visitor category facilitates entry for individuals (without a work permit) who engage in business or trade activities in Canada but will not enter the Canadian labour market. ​Individuals who plan to enter the Canadian labour market may require a Temporary Work Permit. In addition, a Business Visitor may still require a Temporary Resident Visa or an eTA (electronic Travel Authorization) to enter Canada on a temporary basis.
