TRP Temporary Resident Visa Refused at the Canadian Consulate: I have a Fishing Trip!

I have an o.w.i that I received little over 2 years ago.  I have a fishing trip planed for August 28th to Canada (I live in the U.S) I applied for the TRP and that was a lot of leg work. Well it took month to get  a reply from the Canadian Consulate only to find out response from them that they denied me. I already have my desposit made for the trip that is non-refundable. I dont know what to do. It is a 10 hour drive to the border so I dont wont to get all the way up there and get turned away. Can I get any help from anyone as I do not know what to do? I am running out of time. Any help would be great. Thank You.


If you are a US Citizen you can apply for a TRP right at the Canada/US Border. There is always a risk of refusal again however. Without knowing what documents you submitted to the Consulate I am unable to assess why your application for a TRP was refused. TRPs are difficult cases because they involve criminality so they must be properly prepared. If your application is approved at the border then you will be able to enter Canada and enjoy that fishing trip.
