Under Chapter 16 of the North American Free Trade Agreement(NAFTA), citizens of Canada, the United States and Mexico can gain quicker, easier temporary entry into the three countries to conduct business-related activities or investments. All provisions are equally available to citizens of the three countries. NAFTA applies to four specific categories of business persons: business visitors, professionals, intra-company transferees and persons engaged in trade or investment activities, all of whom may enter Canada without a labour market test being applied.

The Canada-Chile Free Trade Agreement(CCFTA) is modeled on NAFTA and facilitates temporary entry on a reciprocal basis, by eliminating the requirement for labour market opinion. The rules governing CCFTA are similar to those of NAFTA and include the same four categories of business persons. However minor changes were introduced.

Under General Agreement on Trade in Services(GATS) Canada has made commitments to allow market access for foreign service providers in specified sectors. GATS commitments apply to over 130 nations. As with NAFTA a temporary entry of a business person can be facilitated without the need of a labour market test.
