Understanding Criminal Inadmissibility

Immigration Law

Whether you are a temporary or permanent resident in Canada, the spectre of criminal inadmissibility can be daunting, threatening to shatter dreams and sever ties with loved ones. As an immigration lawyer with over 20 years of experience, I've witnessed firsthand the impact of criminal inadmissibility on individuals facing deportation. Moreover, my extensive background in criminal law allows me to leverage a unique advantage in Canadian Court procedures, providing clients with an edge to help with  their cases.

Understanding Criminal Inadmissibility:

Inadmissibility on criminal grounds arises from various circumstances. Criminal convictions, both within and outside Canada, are a significant factor.

Overcoming Inadmissibility:

Overcoming criminal inadmissibility requires careful consideration and attention to detail.  Professional advice from an experienced lawyer familiar with the Canadian Court system is imperative in complex criminal inadmissibility cases.

Potential Pathways to Overcome Criminal Inadmissibility:

Criminal inadmissibility can be a complex issue, but various pathways exist to overcome it. Those potential pathways include:

  • Individual Rehabilitation: Depending on the crime and its circumstances, individual rehabilitation may be an option.

  • Deemed Rehabilitation: In certain cases, rehabilitation may be deemed, paving the way for admissibility.

  • Record Suspension or Discharge: Pursuing a record suspension or discharge can also be a strategy to regain admissibility.

  • Temporary resident permit
