Denied Entry to Canada?

Many people have been denied entry to Canada and feel frustrated about it. People get denied entry to Canada all the time. You may be concerned about being denied entry to Canada. You may avoid going up to Canada for this very reason. In most cases, denied entry is due to a criminal record.

Luckily, being denied entry is not the end of the road for you. You still have a few options available. You can examine these options and remove your inadmissibility to Canada. Some of your options are:

  • You may apply for a temporary resident permit
  • You may apply for criminal rehabilitation

A temporary resident permit is the best option for people with a criminal record that is less than five years old. This permit allows you temporary residence in Canada, but once it expires you need to apply for another one to return to Canada. These documents can be obtained at the Canadian border, but the process is difficult and can require a bit of your time.
