About new Visa Canadian to Mexico?
Mexicans are our brothers and sisters and they are in whole or in part,first nation peoples of North America.
The Mexican people are certainly not from Asia or Europe and not citizens of South America.They are from North America and along witch citizens of the United States and Canada we have recognized that a special geographical and social community has existed for hundreds of years,We have signed a free trade agreement that transcends all other agreements in terms of an economical partnership.
We have been proud to have had freedom to visit each other based on a visa-free agreement.
What we must recognized is that if anyone from the North American communities breaks the law of another,such as our immigration law,we must be determined to deport the illegals witch dispatch.
What we should not agree is to restrict the movement of all based on the illegalities of a few.
What the government of Canada has done by insisting on visas from all Mexicans is ab unwise and regressive law.
Our governments in the interest of politics have made some grave decisions in the past and have provide radical and self-serving decisions on immigration.
On one hand the government has suddenly chosen to chastise Mexicans while expediting the entry of thousands of peoples from various parts of the world who qualify simply because they claim to be refugees or we have used them as pawns in our acquiring oil and another economical gratuities.
If we are searching for excellence in acquiring new canadians as the government says why then do they go out of their way to provide opportunities for extended family who haven't any meaningful skills and cause us the burden of having to provide them with a lifetime of social welfare and special distinct language and religious demands.
Our government has altered our traditions and laws to acommodate special considerations that have split our Canadian unity and community into fractionalized cultural regions all because of a terribly contructed human rights bill.
Our political parties are reducing our proud citizenship into a meaningless accreditation by reducing the need of it save for landed immigrants status.
What now is our political parties up to in this sudden and drastic restriction of our North American brethren,the Mexican citizen.

This is the official reason why Canada has put visa requirements for Mexico:
Under Canada’s immigration law, all visitors to Canada require a Temporary Resident Visa, except citizens of countries for which an exemption has been granted under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations.
Canada assesses countries against several criteria when deciding whether to impose a visa requirement. Mexico no longer meets all of the criteria for visa exemption. For example, refugee claims from Mexico have almost tripled since 2005, making it the number one source country for claims. In 2008, more than 9,400 claims filed in Canada came from Mexican nationals, representing 25 per cent of all claims received. Of the claims reviewed and finalized in 2008 by the Immigration and Refugee Board, an independent administrative tribunal, only 11 per cent were accepted. In 2009, there was a surge of over 11,000 claims due to the worldwide recession and the swine flu epidemic.
For the past three years, Canada has also seen an increase in immigration violations. This includes Mexican nationals not possessing the proper travel documents or not leaving Canada once their period of stay had expired.
Canada is a nation of about 33 million people and they only can grant refuge to true refugees. Mexico is a democratic nation with plenty of wealth however those applying for asylum in Canada are doing it simply as economic refugees. Canada has the right to impose visas not only to protect their national security but also to protect their tax payers from the costs associated with asylum claims. Since each claim costs CAD$27,000 to process the application. In 2008, there were 9,400 claims by Mexicans (25% of the national total).
$27,000 x 9,400 = $253,800,000
That's a lot of money for Canadian taxpayers to spend on claims for refugees from a country that is so wealthy yet only 10% of their propulation control 90% of their resources.
Mexico wasn't only country punished as the Czech Republic now has visa requirements. Until Mexico is able to get their act together and stem the flow of emigrants leaving the country for jobs, than visas will become a requirement for a long time.
I am not Mexican but I am sure there are many that agree with me that the PRI and PAN have to stop fighting and work together to get the country back on its' feet after the swine flu epidemic and the worldwide recession.

You will need an FMT, it is not a VISA. It is a tourist permit that you only have to pay for.(about$23usd) at your point of entry. Mexicans now need a Visa to visit Canada. I f you are flying your FMT will be included in your airfare and they are good for a maximum of 180 days The reason is because of the surge in refugee claims or the way I heard it planes were coming in full and going back half full
