Some foreign competitors may require a visa to enter Canada. To find out if you must obtain a visa, visit www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/
For help with your visa, please contact the Canadian visa office in your country: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/
Visa-exempt foreign nationals are expected to have an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA) to fly to or transit through Canada. Exceptions include U.S. citizens, and travellers with a valid Canadian visa. Canadian citizens, including dual citizens, and Canadian permanent residents cannot apply for an eTA.
Note: Until September 29, 2016, travellers who do not have an eTA can board their flight, as long as they have appropriate travel documents, such as a valid passport. During this leniency period, border services officers can let travellers arriving without an eTA into the country, as long as they meet the other requirements to enter Canada. Find answers to your questions about the leniency period.

Just a reminder that if you book flights which goes through the USA, you might require a Transit Visa even for a brief layover.
