If you were convicted of or if you committed a criminal offence outside of Canada, you may be inadmissible to Canada. It is possible to overcome this criminal inadmissibility and be allowed entrance to Canada
- By applying for rehabilitation, or
- You may be deemed to have been rehabilitated if at least ten years have passed since you have completed the sentence imposed upon you or since you committed the offence, if the offense is one that would be an indictable offence in Canada punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of ten years; or
- If the offence is one that would, in Canada, be prosecuted summarily, and if you were convicted for two or more summary offenses, the period for rehabilitation is at least five years after the completion of the sentence.
The period of inadmissibility depends on the nature of the conviction, and whether the conviction was imposed in Canada or outside of Canada.
