- Apply for Rehabilitation, Deemed Rehabilitation or a Pardon. In order to determine which you should apply for given your circumstances, contact our office and we will assist you.
- If you are not eligible to apply for rehabilitation because not enough time has passed from your conviction or commission of a criminal act, you may be able to enter Canada with a Temporary Resident Permit.
- If you have traffic violations or other minor violations, including juvenile convictions, you will most likely not be prohibited from entering Canada.
- When processing a Temporary Resident Permit or an Approval of Rehabilitation application, we will require some of the following documentation:
- police certificates;
- the Applicant’s own statement of circumstances (why they committed an offence);
- court records;
- a copy of the statute under which the Applicant was convicted and;
- three letters from persons of standing in the community who can vouch for the Applicant’s rehabilitation.
- It is not recommended you attempt to enter Canada without consulting a law firm expert in these matters. At BLG we handle hundreds of cases annually that deal with criminality – we would be pleased to assist.
