Temporary Resident/Visitor Visas
For people who want to visit Canada on a temporary basis, and who do not intend to work in Canada or take up normal residence in Canada. A Temporary Resident Visa is also known as a visitor visa. The main determining factor as to whether you require a Temporary Resident Visa before travelling to Canada, is nationality. If you are a citizen of a country that Canada has exempted from the Temporary Resident Visa requirement, you must instead obtain an eTA(electronic Travel Authorization) before travelling to Canada by air (if travelling over land, visa-exempt individuals may obtain approval to enter Canada on a temporary basis at the Canadian border).
It is a document issued to people who want to work in Canada for a limited period.
It is for people who want to move to Canada permanently and bring family members with them, if applicable.
If you are a Canadian permanent resident or citizen with a family member(s) who wants to immigrate to Canada, you may be able to help them become a permanent resident. To facilitate families to live together, the Government of Canada allows eligible residents above the age of 18 to sponsor dependent spouses, children, parents, partners, and grandparents to live with them in Canada.
