Known for its friendliness, Canada nonetheless does have policies that allow it to effectively deny admission for those it deems a risk or threat. The most common reasons to be denied entry to Canada for criminal inadmissibility are:
- Conviction of a crime in Canada or outside of Canada
- Involvement in organized crime
- Involvement in human rights violations
- Committed an act in a foreign nation that is a crime under Canadian law
Crimes that can result in being denied entry to Canada can include DUI convictions and marijuana possession, even many years ago.
