Letter of Invitation for tourist visa

When applying for a tourist visa people some people include a Letter on Invitation in order to maximize the chances to be eligible.

This option is available to those who have friends or relatives living in Canada. Some applicants prefer not to include the invitation letter in their application even though they have friends and/or relatives in Canada.

The letter of invitation may help in some cases.  It may give a hand to those who have been rejected a tourist visa before and for those who do not have a stable income.

Please keep in mind that if you have a stable job and savings in the bank, the letter of invitation is not necessary at all.
