Canada is by size, the largest country in North America, second in the world overall (behind only Russia). Renowned worldwide for its vast, untouched landscape, its unique and tolerant blend of cultures and multifaceted history, Canada is one of the world's wealthiest countries and a major tourist destination.
Canada is perfectly happy with its British heritage and many Canadians are proud of this. Canada has historically been built and influenced by immigrants from two European nations, Britain and France. This dual nature is very different than in the United States, and in some parts of Canada, particularly Quebec and parts of New Brunswick, Canadians primarily speak French.
Starting March 15, 2016, most travellers entering Canada will need an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) or a visitor visa. Travellers can obtain an eTA online as of August 1, 2015. (http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/apply-how.asp)
Processing times are difficult to predict. They vary depending on the type of application you submit and the number of applications currently being processed.
Please note that processing times change depending on the number of applications received and may change during the processing of your application. You can consult the processing times tool for details. This section is updated weekly, so check often to get the latest information.

A valid visa and travel document does not guarantee that you can enter Canada. A border services officer may find that you are no longer admissible because:
• your case has changed, or
• there is new information about you. For instance, you gave false or incomplete information on your visa application.
