CIC has announced that it is encouraging visa offices to issue longer term multiple-entry Temporary Resident Visas to low risk business visitors. This will facilitate business travel and ties to Canada. Visa officers are encouraged to issue multiple-entry visas for as long a validity period as possible (up to 10 years minus one month, or to the end date of the person’s passport, whichever occurs first).
