Will I have to apply for a visa to come to Canada?

Due to immigration law in Canada, the University of Guelph can't provide advice to exchange students about visa requirements or applications.  However, helpful links to the Citizenship & Immigration Canada website information are provided below.  To ensure your visa(s) are processed in time, we advise you to start your visa application process immediately upon receipt of the original copy of your acceptance letter which we have mailed to the international or study abroad office at your home university.  If you do not need a visa to enter Canada, it is still a good idea to bring your exchange acceptance letter with you on your flight in case the Canadian immigration officials ask to see it when you arrive in Canada.
