I will be traveling to Toronto, Canada on business. How much questioning should I expect from Canadian officials regarding the purpose of my visit?

I occasionally do trainings for work and many years ago I recall visiting Toronto on business and getting pulled aside for questioning. Apparently Canada had (still has?) regulations that restrict the type of work visitors may do, especially if a Canadian resident can do the same work.
It so happens that my line of work is fairly specialized, so it would be relatively unusual to find someone to do the training. So my question boils down to: is this still an issue these days and if so are there any ways to turn this into less of a hassle?
