Having a criminal record can cause problems for anyone who is looking to apply for immigration status. Not only can it cause significant delays in immigration processes, it can cause immigration applications to be denied completely or put on hold.
While the Canadian government is trying to calm public outrage over people who had committed serious crimes being able to apply for pardons (such as former hockey coach Graham James, who obtained a pardon after committing sex crimes against minors), anyone who really requires a pardon will be able to eventually get one once they come up with more money. However in the case of immigration applications, obtaining a pardon will take much longer and cause significant delays in the immigration process for many.
