Single entry visa: In this visa, a person is allowed to travel only once in Canada. As soon as the person leaves Canada, he needs a new visitor visa to enter again in Canada until and unless he is traveling to the United States and St. Pierre and Miquelon. However, if a person is traveling to the United States, St. Pierre or Miquelon, then he can visit back to Canada without getting a new travel visa.

Multiple entry systems: In this type of visa, a person can come and go from Canada without the need of getting a new visitor visa each time. However, a person cannot live in Canada for more than 6 months in one go. That means a person has to visit his home country after duration of 6 months. The longest validity of this visa is of 10 years or 1 month before the expiry of the passport, whichever comes earlier.
