Entering Canada – Visa Information

Visiting Canada

Canada has a well-earned reputation for public safety, fair business practices, racial tolerance, and generous hospitality. As with any international travel, delegates will require a valid passport to visit Canada.

Most delegates will not require a visa to visit Canada. For those who do, we can issue a Letter of Invitation that may be used to accompany your temporary visa application (on request). Please note that the Letter of Invitation will only be issued to registered and paid delegates of the Conference. It is important that delegates apply early to allow adequate time for processing Visa applications. This will allow for a smooth, hassle-free process in coming to Toronto.
