H&C and Inadmissibility

Posted in Humanitarian and Compassionate

Officers will assess whether the known inadmissibility, for example, a criminal conviction, outweighs the H&C grounds. They may consider factors such as your actions, including those that led to and followed the conviction. Officers will consider:

  • the type of criminal conviction;
  • what sentence was received;
  • the length of time since the conviction;
  • whether the conviction is an isolated incident or part of a pattern of recidivist criminality; and
  • any other pertinent information about the circumstances of the crime.

H&C Health inadmissibility

Any known inadmissibility, including health inadmissibility, will be assessed during the Stage 1 assessment, and either an exemption is granted to overcome the inadmissibility or the case is refused.  If you have any type of inadmissibility issue, it is strongly advised that you consultant with an immigration practitioner.

However, applicants normally undergo a medical examination at Stage 2 of the process. The health inadmissibility must be confirmed prior to the grant of an exemption to overcome it, so officers may request that you complete the medical examination at Stage 1 if:

  • you have specifically requested an exemption from inadmissibility requirements related to health and the officer is of the opinion that the H&C factors might outweigh the inadmissibility
  • the officer suspects that the case involves health inadmissibility

    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.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. 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.

    Fantastic news, I entered Canada without a hitch. Once the guard at the border saw the package you had prepared for me, he took about ten minutes and handed me my permit. What I relief! I don’t know why I ever tried this without you guys! Thank you!

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.
