Reason for Inadmissibility

Every application to enter, stay or immigrate to Canada is considered by an immigration/visa officer through the prism of admissibility to Canada. The existence of some specified in the Canadian legislation grounds can make a person inadmissible to Canada. Amongst such reasons are past criminal convictions, criminal charges, security reasons, health grounds, financial reasons, inadmissible family member or misrepresentation on the immigration application in the past.

Overcome Criminal Inadmissibility

A foreign national who committed or has been convicted of a crime in any country of the world is deemed criminally inadmissible to Canada. Some examples of crimes (minor and serious) are assault, theft, dangerous driving or driving while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, manslaughter, etc. Yonge offenders under the age of 18 years old are not criminally inadmissible. Even criminally inadmissible people could be deemed rehabilitated or apply for rehabilitation, be granted a record suspension or a temporary resident permit. In any of these cases, a person overcomes criminal inadmissibility.
