Are you expecting vistors from abroad?

If so, let them know about new Canadian travel requirements for people without Canadian passports or visas.

As of September 30, the federal government will require visa-exempt foreign nationals who fly to or transit through Canada to get an electronic travel authorization. Dual citizens are encouraged to get a Canadian passport.
