Inadmissibility to Canada doesn’t have to mean you can never visit again.

Published by Hillfield Immigration on 30th July, 2021

The only way to have a criminal record permanently cleared for Canadian Immigration purposes is either by criminal rehabilitation or deemed rehabilitation. Depending on the crime you may have committed, how long ago it was and how you have behaved since you were incarcerated, you may still be allowed to come to Canada. Our professional legal team can offer advice on which of the following is the appropriate option for you.

When you apply to visit Canada as an individual with a criminal background, you will have to convince an immigration officer that you meet the legal terms to be deemed rehabilitated; applied for rehabilitation and were approved; or were granted a record suspension or have a temporary resident permit. These are just some of the avenues available for someone with a criminal record.

Under Canada’s immigration law, you may be deemed rehabilitated depending on the crime; and if enough time has passed since you finished serving the sentence for the crime. In all instances you may only be deemed rehabilitated if the crime committed outside Canada has a maximum prison term of less than 10 years, like if committed in Canada.

When you are rehabilitated, it means that you are not likely to commit new crimes or keep your old criminal pattern. Therefore, you may be eligible to apply under individual rehabilitation to enter Canada. Let our expert representative help you prove the following to immigration.

o show that you meet the criteria,
o have been rehabilitated
o be highly unlikely to commit any future crimes
o At least five years has passed since the end of your criminal sentence (this includes probation) and the day you committed the act that made you inadmissible.
