Rehabilitation Certificates to overcome criminal inadmissibility in Canada
Individuals will not be deemed rehabilitated if they were convicted of an Offence or were determined to have committed an offence outside of Canada, if the offence is one that would, in Canada, be an indictable offence punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of more than ten years.
Individuals who believe that they are deemed rehabilitated do not have to apply to be deemed rehabilitated, but should ensure that they qualify before they try to enter Canada as they could be found inadmissible to Canada when they arrive at the border.
Individuals may apply for a Rehabilitation Certificate if they:
- committed an act outside of Canada and five (5) years have elapsed since the act;
- been convicted outside of Canada and five (5) years have passed since the end of the sentence imposed.
If you are contemplating applying for a Rehabilitation Certificate or want to know if you are deemed rehabilitated you may want to book a paid consultation to discuss you matter.
