The North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) is a trilateral reciprocal
agreement between the United States, Canada and Mexico. Its goal is to
expand trade between the signatory countries.
To expand trade, individuals must have access to each other’s country to
sell, provide goods or services or trade and invest. The NAFTA
facilitates the temporary entry into Canada for American and Mexican
business persons and selected categories of workers.
The NAFTA does not replace the existing general provisions for entering
Canada temporarily. Rather, it is to be considered as an addition to the
current rules to benefit
American and Mexican citizens.
The provisions of the NAFTA apply only to temporary entry into Canada.
