Canada will introduce a ten-year, multiple entry visit visa for Indian nationals starting in the middle of July 2011. Currently, the maximum validity of visitor visas for Indian nationals is five years.

"The 10-year visas will be available from mid-July," said Bruce Grundison, Deputy Immigration Programme Manger of the Canadian High Commission.

He stated that some technical issued needed to be worked out in the interim.

According to Canadian International Trade Minister and Asia-Pacific Gateway Minister Edward Fast, the new visa regime is expected to lead to improved trade relations between Canada and India.

hahaha me too love this America , Canada is my backup plan and in future I will be in the USA sure, becasue my father is green card holder now , sister is citizen and they already file our family GC, even I also filed my employment GC, I have nice job with Federal Government contract , earning nice but problem is GC, long stay, if I got GC soon than I never plan for backup , even if I got GC in few days than I will be a full-time permanent atleast for 10years employee for this federal government, but GC is problem for us. I already applied for USA  GC 5years ago, still waiting....!

HI

Unless you require a TRV (visitor visa) to enter Canada, and if you are Dutch citizens, then no you can't apply for one, since you don't need one to enter Canada as a visitor.

Check the official CIC website for Temporary Resident Visas (TRV) for the most up to date information.  Make sure you have very strong ties to your country before you apply.  If you are an Indian working in another country, you will need to prove you will leave Canada at the end of the Visa.  Good Luck.

We had something similar back in 1988, I was with my mother and it was our 3rd Trip to USA. They let us go after questioning.
During another incident, it was my father 6th visit and the officer says there is NO VISA? my father said it's right in there else I wouldn't travel and he called his supervisor who apologized to him and let him entry.
