A Visitor Visa, officially known as a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) is a temporary immigration visa which allows people to visit the Canada for certain period of time. Every Foreign National except Canadian Permanent Resident require authorization to enter Canada as a visitor and require either a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) or an eTA (electronic Travel Authorization), unless they are US Citizens. An eTA is only for those foreign nationals who are coming from Visa Exempt Countries by air only.
TRV can only be applied by a foreign national from Visa Required Countries for a family visit, tourism, leisure, student, worker, business visit and to transit via Canada.
TRV is of following two types: Single Entry Visa, Multiple Entry Visa.

However, if the visa holder leaves the country for the United States of America or the St. Pierre and Miquelon, their return to Canada is allowed again and they would not require a new Single-Entry Visa to enter the country.
A Multiple-Entry Visa allows the holder to enter the country of Canada as and when they require. The visa holder will not have to reapply each time and the validity of the visa is up to 10 years, or one month before the passport expires, whichever comes first.
