Successful Temporary Resident Permit application after DUI convictions
We have recently been successful in a number of applications for Temporary Resident Permit(s), after our clients were convicted of Driving Under the Influence (DUI) in their home countries. While neither of the applicants were yet eligible to apply for Criminal Rehabilitation, we recommended and assisted with the preparation of applications for Temporary Resident Permit(s), to temporarily overcome our clients’ criminal inadmissibility to facilitate their entry to Canada. In one case, the Applicant yearned to attend an important family function, and in the other for employment purposes. Our team was successful in carefully gathering evidence and presenting written arguments that our clients’ circumstances and need to enter Canada were sufficiently compelling to temporarily overcome their criminal inadmissibility. We were very pleased that with our assistance, our clients were able to visit Canada to attend one of the most significant family functions and to continue with their dream employment.
