What Can Happen If A Permanent Resident Is Convicted Of A Crime

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Question: What can happen if a permanent resident is convicted of a crime? Will they lose their status and have to leave Canada? Any permanent resident of Canada risks losing status, being deported to their home country, and even barred from ever returning to Canada should they be convicted.

Permanent Residents Facing Criminal Conviction

The law surrounding this question is complicated. What will happen in each case depends entirely on what crime has been committed and whether or not the perpetrator is convicted and sentenced. It is especially important that they seek legal advice in their situation. The criminal court process can be lengthy and confusing and depending on the circumstances, they may have specific conditions imposed on them during this time.

Spectacular experience. Completely smooth process, they were able to answer any of my questions any time and I had peace of mind throughout the application time, which was invaluable. I have recommended them to other friends looking for assistance with their applications, and will continue to do so. Worth every penny.
