The recent "3 Amigos" summit between the United States, Canada and Mexico spurred hopes among some that Canada and Mexico could conclude an sort of agreement whereby the visa requirement for Mexicans could be relaxed or modified to allow for Mexican business travellers easier access to come to Canada. Unfortunately Canada would not budge on making any modifications to the existing situation, where all Mexicans must apply for temporary resident visas to visit Canada. It appears that concerns over refugee claims have trumped possible benefits which could be accrued by making travel easier and thereby fostering more business between the two countries. Given the expanding middle class in Mexico and the size of the Mexican economy it might be prudent for the government to take some time to revisit this issue in the near future. There are many Mexicans who wish to travel to Canada for business purposes. Such travel should be encouraged to foster increased trade and growth in the Canadian economy.
