Inadmissibility Facts to Canada
If you have been convicted of a felony offence and looking into entering Canada then you can apply either for Criminal Rehabilitation application or Temporary Resident Permit depending on what the offence is we have to equate it to the Canadian Criminal Code. Sever offences in the US are known as Felony offence which is equated in Canada as an indictable offence. However not all offences that are labeled felony offence are considered an indictable offence in Canada. Most offences fall under the hybrid offence which can either be a summary conviction which is known as misdemeanor in the United States or an Indictable which is known as a felony offence in the United States. To determine under what criminal code your offence falls under we look at the sentence and what you had to complete for it. For example was it a fine you had to pay or a probation you had to serve or were you imprisoned for specific period of time. Once all the information is gathered we can determine under what Criminal Code your offence falls under if it had happened in Canada.
So just because your police clearances show felony offence does not mean you have to submit an application, because we first have to equate it to the Canadian Criminal Code and determine it from there.
