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.
