Federal Government Announces Bill C-60, the Removal of Serious Foreign Criminals Act

Posted by Jessica Templeman - Bellissimo Law Group PC

The Federal Government announced on 12 May 2015 Bill C-60, the Removal of Serious Foreign Criminals Act.  This new legislation would amend the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, making it easier and faster to remove certain foreign nationals and permanent residents who have engaged in criminality. These changes also further limit the record suspension region, rendering some migrants ineligible for a  pardon.

These changes continue the trend of increasing overlap in criminal and immigration legislation. For practical advice on navigating this overlap, pick up your copy of Canadian Citizenship and Immigration Inadmissibility: Criminal Law Edition.
