Canadian Inadmissibility

If you have been refused entry, or have been found inadmissible to Canada, you may be able to overcome the inadmissibility. Persons may be inadmissible to Canada for a a number of reasons.  Some of the reasons a person may be inadmissible include:

  • You have been convicted of a crime, or you have committed an act outside Canada that would be a crime,
  • You are a security risk
  • You have ties to organized crime,
  • You have a serious health problem,
  • You have a serious financial problem,
  • You lied in your application or in an interview,
  • You do not meet the conditions in Canada’s immigration law, or
  • One of your family members is not allowed into Canada.

Canada recognizes that even though a person may be inadmissible under one or more of the immigration laws, there may be circumstances or relief that can get them admitted to the Canada.  In such cases, the person who is inadmissible to Canada may apply to overcome their inadmissibility.

If you have been convicted of an offense outside of Canada, you may be inadmissible depending on the type of offense, the disposition and the amount of time that has passed since you completed your sentence.  Criminal admissibility is a complex area of law requiring a particularly skilled Canadian immigration attorney and in-depth knowledge of Canadian Immigration and Criminal Law.  At Richards & Kruger, we have extensive experience helping both immigrants and non-immigrants to overcome inadmissibility to Canada.
