Criminal Inadmissibility

Sometimes Permanent Residents run into trouble with the law. It is important that Permanent Residents contact an immigration lawyer right away when this happens because Immigration can try to deport them (even after Criminal Court proceedings are done).

Even minor criminal offences can result in a Permanent Resident becoming inadmissible to Canada and several steps need to be taken in order to keep your Permanent Residence after being charged with a crime.

If you are a Permanent Resident and have been charged with a crime, please call right away so that we can take steps to help you keep your Permanent Residence.
