Faculties and departments are strongly encouraged to complete the Foreign Visitor Category Assessment form prior to inviting foreign nationals to the University on a temporary basis.
Completing this assessment will increase the likelihood that a foreign national will enter Canada with the correct immigration documentation and, if applicable, ensure they can be paid. It can be a difficult to resolve the situation resulting from inviting the visitor incorrectly. In some cases it can result in a foreign national being denied entry to Canada or potentially having to cease all activities on campus and return to their home country.
Please contact Academic Services if you have any questions.
