Have you been denied entry to Canada by an officer at the border because of prior conviction in a foreign country? Not eligible for Rehab yet? You may still be able to apply for temporary entry with a Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) if you have the right reasons.
A person can be unable to come to Canada, or “inadmissible,” for a number of reasons. These reasons include security, criminal, financial or health reasons. People today are being turned away more and more for reasons of inadmissibility. Most times, they are often told to file for Rehabilitation or a Temporary Resident Permit. Other times, they are ordered “removed” or “excluded” from Canada.
When a person has committed a crime in a foreign country, an immigration lawyer can help them determine whether this crime fits into the categories of offences that can make people inadmissible to Canada.
