Criminal Rehabilitation

Criminal Rehabilitation is a means whereby an individual with a criminal record seeks permission from the Canadian government for permission to enter Canada and thereby overcome their criminal inadmissibility. Through their conduct, they must demonstrate not only that they have overcome their criminal behavior but also exhibit remorse as well. In fact, they must manifest in their actions that they have improved their criminal nature/ tendencies and will thus not inflict a threat to Canadian society.  The Canadian government wants to ensure that you do not pose a risk to the safety and well-being of the Canadian society; therefore, it requires that you be rehabilitated prior to granting you permission to enter the country.

Having a Spouse with Criminal Record

In order to ensure the security of every Canadian citizen and permanent resident, the immigration officers are vigilant when it comes to accessing foreign nationals’ admissibility.

Entering Canada with a Felony Conviction

Entering Canada with a Felony Conviction

What to do when you are convicted of a felony?

When a person is convicted of a crime outside of Canada it is important and necessary to compare the elements of Canadian law with those of the foreign jurisdiction to determine whether the person is inadmissible or not. What does not matter is the foreign law under which the person was convicted rather what matters is the equivalent of that conviction under Canadian law. The officer has to establish that the foreign offence contains the essential elements of the offence in Canada to show that it is equivalent to the foreign offence. The officer can compare foreign law and foreign court and examine the person at the admissibility hearing.

The intent behind this policy is to deny entry to those in Canada who intend to use the Canadian soil as a safe haven from their criminal proceeding to who are feeling for criminal proceedings.
