Question: I am applying for immigration to Canada, but I have a misdemeanor record in my country of residence. I understand some offences are acceptable, but others can make someone inadmissible to Canada. How can I know the status of my offence?
Answer: Canada has its own system in separating minor from major offences. In your case, your offence will be equated into its Canadian counterpart to determine whether it makes you inadmissible. One option you have is to submit a rehabilitation application so that even if you’re inadmissible, you can be reconsidered if the office thinks you’re rehabilitated. It is highly advised that you consult a lawyer who is familiar with cases like this to help you with the process.
