Although visas and permits are seen as similar documentation required for entering Canada, there is a key difference between the two. Visas are required by citizens from certain international countries to enter into Canada. Whereas permits are what allows someone to be in Canada and control what their purpose is while in Canada (examples include: work permits and student permits).
There are different classifications of permits and visas which are given out for specific purposes. These include:
- work permits
- temporary visas
- student visas
- super visas
- temporary resident permits, and more.
