Inadmissibility Issues and Waivers

Inadmissibility Issues and Waivers

Known for its friendliness, Canada nonetheless does have policies that allow it to effectively deny admission for those it deems a risk or threat. Inadmissibility to Canada for criminal or medical reasons can be addressed with the help of an immigration lawyer.

The most common reasons that you will be deemed inadmissible are:

  • Conviction of a crime (in Canada or outside of it)
  • Involvement in organized crime
  • Involvement in human rights violations
  • Committed an act in a foreign nation that is a crime under Canadian law
  • Certain financial, health or security reasons

If you are refused entry to Canada because of some of those reasons, there may still be ways to enter the country.

Forbes Bros. Ltd. chose Ackah law as our immigration specialist for several reasons:

1. Competence: As immigration, permanent residency and the temporary Foreign worker program are necessary to our business we are not in a position to use a less than fully qualified service provider on these files.

2. Responsiveness: When you are dealing with the lives of people, there is nothing more important to that individual at that moment than his or her immigration issues, responsiveness to this, and an appreciation of the employee’s position is key.

3. Attitude: The thing I like best about Ackah law is the attitude and can-do spirit of the staff. Evelyn and her team show us what a small group of dedicated individuals can do. IT is the first time in a long time that I didn’t feel like a billable hour in a lawyers office.
