What is the difference between Criminal Rehabilitation and a Temporary Resident Permit?
If you are planning a trip to Canada but you have a criminal record, you may be denied entry if you are considered ‘inadmissible’ by the Customs Officer. Canada has very strict regulations regarding entry to Canada when it comes to having a criminal record, so if you have ever committed or been convicted of either a minor or serious crime, you will have to obtain either a Temporary Resident Permit, or overcome criminal inadmissibility through Criminal Rehabilitation.
Criminal Rehabilitation and a Temporary Resident Permit are very different application processes, with different eligibility requirements and processing times; therefore it is important to understand the difference, as well as which option is the best solution for you.
