Over 18 million foreigners visit Canada every year making tourism an over $80 billion-a-year Canadian industry — bigger than lumber, fishing, and farming combined. So why not join in?
Why come to Canada?
Canada is a large, diverse country with a lot going for it, but most tourists are drawn to a few of the same things:
Nature — Canada is one of the most beautiful countries in the world, full of picturesque forests, mountains, and lakes that make it a fantastic place for camping, hiking, or just wandering around and admiring.
Winter Sports — Canada’s snowy climate and mountainous geography has produced no shortage of must-visit parks and resorts for anyone interested in skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing, or any other activity best enjoyed in the cold.
Cities — Canada is home to several large, modern cities that anyone with a taste for urban life will be able to appreciate.
Cost — The Canadian dollar is generally quite weak in comparison to other currencies, which make it a very affordable option for people without too much money in their travel budgets.
How to Visit Canada
Canada does not treat all international visitors the same; citizens of certain countries will have an easier time entering Canada than others. All foreign visitors to Canada, however, must bring a valid passport from their home country.
Residents of the United States have the easiest entry to Canada, and don’t require anything other than a passport to get in.
Residents of Great Britain, western Europe, and a few other countries have to obtain an Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA) before they can enter. Once completed, an ETA lasts for five years or until you get a new passport. Contact us if you need eTA.
