What is the application procedure for business visa?

Business visitors must apply for a visitor visa, or TRV, as usual, and must state that they are visiting Canada for international business purposes. At their port of entry, business travelers may be asked to show proof of their activities to a border services official. They can bring their family members with them to Canada, but every family member must submit their individual visitor visa application.

Do you need a work permit to visit Canada for business purposes?

You do not require a work permit to engage in business activities connected to your job back home, such as meeting with clients or attending conferences. If you plan to work in secretarial, management, technical, or production roles or stay in Canada for more than six months, you must apply for a work permit.

If you are in Canada on a visiting visa and receive a job offer from a Canadian business, you must apply for a work permit before you may start working. Because your application must be processed by the Canadian visa office in charge of the nation where you live or are a citizen, you may be obliged to leave Canada while your application is being processed. However, you can stay in Canada till the validity of your visit visa expires.

Where is the Schengen business visa for Finland valid?

Unless the visa sticker specifies otherwise, a Schengen Visa (issued by a Schengen State’s consulate or embassy) is valid for all 26 Schengen States (including Finland’s European territory). As a result, you do not require a second visa to visit or stay in Finland’s European territory. However, you must have documentary documentation for the duration of your stay and your departure.

Schengen countries include: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Does the day you arrive in Finland count as one of the days you're allowed to remain (visit duration) under the terms of your visa?

The duration of the visit includes the dates of arrival in Finland and departure from Finland. When a person enters Finland through another Schengen country, their stay in Finland is regarded to begin on the day they enter the Schengen region.
