Guidelines for Business Visitors Entering Canada
As the premier border city in Canada, our businesses can face unique situations where their customers who are coming from the US for sales meetings, after service support of machinery, or technical discussions must cross an international border to see their supplier. To support this ever-important cross border trade, the WEEDC have been working in partnership with Canadian Border Services Agency to help identify the issues and find resolutions to help our local companies understand the rules and support their customers and service providers to allow them to cross the border with minimal disruption.
This document will help to overcome any difficulties businesses may be facing in obtaining the knowledge and tools they need to comply with Canadian immigration law and thereby improve their competitiveness and ability to respond to market realities in real time. You will find some guidelines to help your colleagues be prepared for the border and their entry into Canada. There are also sample letters for your company to provide to your US counterparts for their trip into Canada, and for them to have completed by their employer prior to crossing the border, including a checklist of information they should be able to provide to the Border Services Officer at the point of entry. Additionally, you will find instructions on utilizing the Temporary Foreign Worker Unit in Toronto, ON, Canada for a written opinion that your visitor can/should bring to the border to assist them in a trouble-free crossing.
