Refused entry to Canada? We can help

Did you know that a criminal record can make you inadmissible to Canada? This means that if you attempt to enter the country you will be turned away. Denied Entry to Canada 3
Unfortunately, it does not matter whether your conviction is very old, for a minor offense or if you’re a completely different person now than when it occurred. You can still be denied entry.

However, even people who are denied entry to Canada because of a criminal record have options. Start by speaking to a licensed immigration lawyer to explore these options.

Options for someone who has been denied entry to Canada

Someone who has been or may be denied entry to Canada has the option of applying for a temporary resident permit or for criminal rehabilitation.

In the case of criminal rehabilitation, applicants who have a criminal record that is for a conviction more than five years old may be able to go through this process and remove their inadmissibility to Canada permanently. While a permanent solution, this process takes several months.

Someone who has a criminal record that is less than five years old can consider applying for a temporary resident permit, which is a temporary document that will help you overcome your criminal inadmissibility for a short time. This document is much quicker to obtain, but that does not mean it is easy to get.

I highly recommend VisaPlace to anyone seeking help with navigating the legal minefield that is Permanent Residency. As someone who is very easily stressed, Lauren & Mariana have saved me a lot of sleepless nights. They are fast, efficient, reliable and honest and I will be telling any of my friends to use them for immigration. Thanks to them, my future with my husband in Canada is bright
