Toronto, Dec 14: The Indo-Canada community has demanded for reciprocal visits by Indian leaders to fast-track ties between the countries.

Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper and his top ministers will be visiting India this year 2009.

The community hailed Canadan Prime Minister's move for signing nuclear deal and said India should act now by paying more attention to Canada by undertaking frequent ministerial visits.

"When Manmohan Singh came to Washington this month, he should have visited Canada even for a few hours. Canadian leaders have done their job, and now Indians must pay attention to this country," said an Indo-Canadian businessman, requesting anonymity.

"Three or four Indian ministers should visit Canada before Prime Minister Manmohan Singh comes here for the G20 summit in Jun 2010," he said.

He said Indo-Canadian business and cultural bodies like the Indo-Canada Chamber of Commerce and the Canada-India Foundation, and the Indian high commission should lobby hard to bring Indian leaders.
