Denied Entry to Canada Facts
If you have been convicted of a felony offense and are looking at entering Canada you may be eligible to apply for Criminal Rehabilitation or Temporary Resident Permit. Criminal Rehabilitation is a process that ultimately removes your inadmissibility issue to Canada. If approved, your past convictions will no longer be an issue when attempting to cross the border (or for permanent residency). Criminal Rehabilitation, once accomplished, signifies that you now have a stable lifestyle, have changed your behaviour, and are unlikely to commit any further criminal acts. Criminal Rehabilitation is only available for individuals who have past criminal convictions from outside of Canada. Specifically, you are only able to apply for Criminal Rehabilitation if you committed a criminal act outside of Canada and five years have passed since then, or if you have been convicted outside of Canada and five years have passed since you completed your sentence. If you are looking to only visit Canada temporarily, you may consider applying for a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP). This permit, if granted, will allow you to enter Canada temporarily (as determined on your permit). However, a TRP is only valid for one-time entry and must be renewed each time it expires. Criminal Rehabilitation, however, permanently resolves your inadmissibility issue such that you will not need to deal with it again the next time you attempt to enter Canada.
When convicted of an offense the immigration officer equates your criminal offense to the Canadian criminal code. Usually a felony offense is equated to what is called an indictable offense in Canada. However not all the offences that are labeled felony are considered an indictable offence in Canada, because it may be a hybrid offense which means it could be a summary conviction or an indictable offense. To determine under what category you belong under the immigration officer looks at your sentence and what you had to complete for it whether it is a fine or probation or combination of both to determine if this will actually be considered an indictable offence had it happened in Canada.
