Omitting Information about your Criminal Past Video
When entering Canada through a port of entry or at a Canadian border and an Immigration officer probes to see if you have a criminal past or record, it is highly advisable to answer correctly if you do have a criminal record. This is the case even if you have a minor charge. The Immigration officer will most likely only ask this question of you if they have seen something while prescreening your passport. They usually decide to probe further to see whether the individual will respond accurately or omit this information from them. It is important to note, however, that if you do disclose the correct information to the Immigration officer, they may deny your entry into Canada. There are ways to prevent this from happening. For instance, you may apply for a Temporary Resident Permit or a Criminal Rehabilitation before attempting to enter Canada, that way you can overcome your criminal inadmissibility temporarily in order to enter Canada successfully.
