You can apply for “rehabilitation” to enter Canada if an offense was 5 or 10 years from the completion of your sentence, and can show you are now law abiding. The length of time that must pass is depends on the crime’s severity. Rehabilitation is deemed automatic after ten years, but applying at the border during your trip risks delay and added administration costs. Our attorneys will examine your record to determine your eligibility. Working with our Canadian associates, we will ensure your IMM 1444, IM 5476, police certificates, and supporting documentation are completed and filed correctly with the appropriate Canadian authorities. All cases continue to be monitored from our Minneapolis office.
Temporary Resident's Permit
If you’re not yet eligible for rehabilitation, it is possible to receive a temporary resident’s permit, if Canadian officers feel a situation deserves special consideration. There are a variety of circumstances under which these permits may be approved, but they are always discretionary, and involve added cost if you risk it at the border. Again, apply beforehand to prevent disappointment at the border. Our attorneys will determine your eligibility and, with our Canadian associates, ensure your application and supporting documentation are filed correctly. All cases continue to be monitored from our Minneapolis office.
