Criminal Rehabilitation

Criminal Rehabilitation application is a process for which it allows a person who has committed or been convicted of a crime outside Canada to enter or stay in Canada. The term, Rehabilitation, under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA), means that the person is no longer considered inadmissible to Canada for a particular criminal offence committed in the past.

person who can apply for criminal rehabilitation is if at least five years have elapsed since the offence was committed and all criminal sentences have been completed, however, not all convictions are eligible to be rehabilitated. If you have committed any offences in the past and are planning to immigrate to Canada, you must first be rehabilitated or deemed rehabilitated, if 5 or 10 years has passed except in cases of serious criminality, to enter into Canada.

Hearings and Appeals

If you are refused to sponsor your family member(s), or you are in a situation where you may lose your permanent resident status due to contravention of residency obligation requirement, you may appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) for reconsideration, if appeal is allowed.

ermanent residents or foreign nationals who are believed to breach the IRPA appear, upon request of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA), appear before Immigration Division (ID) of the IRB for admissibility hearing. If you are detained by CBSA suspecting that you do not have right to enter or stay in Canada, you have the right to an independent hearing and may hire a lawyer or immigration consultant to help you.
