Canadian Inadmissibility

Inadmissibility is considered one of the important immigration issues in Canada. Inadmissibility to Canada means a person has been prohibited from entering Canada without special approval. Canadian inadmissibility refers to all applicants included in the application to Canada. If an individual is willing to apply for family visit visa application or join a visa application, the applicant and family will be barred from entering Canada if there are potential criminal or medical Canadian inadmissibility issues.

Types Of Inadmissibility

Three significant categories of Canadian inadmissibility that we most commonly face.

Criminal Inadmissibility

Criminal inadmissibility applies to people who have committed a minor or dangerous crime in or outside Canada. It can cause an individual inadmissible to Canada based on criminal grounds of admissibility. Such criminal activities can include:
  • Theft
  • Dangerous driving
  • Driving while taking alcohol or drugs,
  • Assault
  • killing
  • Possession of or drug trafficking or controlled substances
  • Human smuggling
  • Money laundering
  • Organized criminal activity
However, you can overcome criminal inadmissibility:
  • By applying criminal rehabilitation
  • By applying record suspension
  • By applying for a Canadian temporary resident permit.

Medical Inadmissibility

Foreign nationals applying to work, study, visit, or permanently live in Canada suffering from any health issues may be inadmissible to Canada for medical purposes. The infectious diseases that create grounds for Canadian inadmissibility include tuberculosis, syphilis, leprosy, and others. Such health issues can be dangerous to public health and provoke excessive demand for health and social services.

Canadian Inadmissibility For Misrepresentation

Withholding material information, providing false information, or sending false documents to the IRRC can make you inadmissible under Canadian immigration law for misrepresentation. Misrepresentation can result in disapproval of applications, refusal of entry, loss of permanent or temporary resident status, five years immigration ban to enter Canada, revocation of citizenship and prosecution, and deportation from Canada. However, if an applicant can overcome Misrepresentation inadmissibility, found innocent, and reasonably believed that they were not withholding material information.

How to Remove Canadian Inadmissibility

There are two methods to overcome Canadian inadmissibility. These are:
  • Temporary Resident Permit:
  • Request exemption on Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds.

Apply For Temporary Resident Permit (TRP)

The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) permits an inadmissible person to apply for a temporary resident permit (TRP). TRP can only be granted to an admissible person under some specific conditions. On this condition, the person can visit Canada for a predetermined amount of time.

Request For Humanitarian And Compassionate Consideration

A Foreign citizen whose permanent residence application is rejected due to inadmissibility may request an exemption for humanitarian and compassionate grounds under some specific factors.
