Record Number of Canadian Immigration Visitor Visas Issued in 2012


Canada has issued a record number of Canadian immigration visitor visas this year, with over half a million issued since the start of this year, announced Immigration Canada Minister Jason Kenney. “Canada is the best country in the world, so it is not surprising that so many people want to visit our country,” said Minister Kenney. “Our country’s vibrant cities and remote wilderness are a draw for Canadians and international travelers alike.” Canada’s tourist season is now at its peak, and by the end of the year it is anticipated that over one million visitor visas will be granted. These numbers do not include Canada student visas or  Canada temporary work permits.
