Visitor visa for spouse (US Green Card holder) when entering Canada

I am a permanent resident of the US and a holder of passport from India and so is my
spouse (Indian Passport, US PR).

I will be on a business trip to Canada for a month. In that time my spouse would be
visiting me in Canada for 3-5 days. I know that a US PR does not require a visa to
enter Canada. However I have the follwing questions :

1. When my spouse enters Canada does an invitation letter from me necessary ?

2. Does my spouse saying that the reason of her visit is to visit her husband raise
any red-flags with the Canada Immigration ?

3. She works in the US, So I am asking her to carry her offer letter and her latest
paystub. Is there any other documents other than her passport and GC required or
advisable ?

Thanks VK

Your best bet is to contact the Indian Consul in New York City in order to discuss
your questions. Do not rely on advice from complete strangers who may be well
meaning, but wrong.

Probably better still would be to talk to the Canadian officials, since it'll be
their decision that rules the day.

I'll second that. The Canadian authorities are the ones to decide, not the Indian
(they have no say in this matter - they represent Indian interests in the US). Most
major cities have a Canadian consulate - see your Yellow Pages, so get in touch with
them. There is also a web site: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/visit/index.html - have
fun browsing it, lots of information.

Your question is complex, and I don't recommend that you take the advice of people
who happen to post to rec.travel newsgroups. Call the Canadian Consulate and ask them
for their advice. Or go in and visit them.
