Today, the Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, announced Canada’s intention to lift the visa requirement for Mexican visitors beginning December 1, 2016. The announcement came during a productive two-day State visit to Canada by Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Lifting the visa requirement will deepen the ties between Canada and Mexico and will increase the flow of travellers, ideas, and business between both countries.
Canada and Mexico both understand the importance of having a productive and respective relationship – one that allows for greater trade, stronger growth, and more clean job creation.
Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau said that “Canada is pleased to deliver on the government’s commitment to lift the visa requirement for Mexican nationals. We look forward to the social and economic benefits that lifting the visa requirement will bring to both countries, especially to the middle class here in Canada.”
