Business Visitor Visas
Business Visitors are foreign nationals who plan to visit Canada temporarily to look for new business opportunities, to invest or to advance existing business relationships. There is no separate application or special visa for business visitors. Business visitors from countries that require visas to visit Canada must apply for a temporary resident visa just like any other temporary visitor to Canada.
