Criminal Rehabilitation

While a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) may help you overcome a criminal inadmissibility  (Deny Entry into Canada) for a finite amount of time, Criminal Rehabilitation overcomes this inadmissibility permanently. This means that, if successfully obtained, a Criminal Rehabilitation will ensure that you are never again considered inadmissible for your previous convictions. Qualifying for this is based on the severity of the offense(s) and the lapse of time from the most recent offense.

Record Suspensions Canada

Record Suspensions

A Record Suspension (formerly a pardon) allows people who were convicted of a criminal offence, but have completed their sentence and demonstrated they are law-abiding citizens for a prescribed number of years, to have their criminal record kept separate and apart from other criminal records. Therefore, if you have received a pardon for a previous offense, you are not considered inadmissible to Canada as a result of that offense.

They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.
