Based on the particular situation, there are many areas in Canadian Immigration law which are directly influenced by Canadian and applicant’s source country laws. But when a temporary visa or an immigration application is processed/examined for inadmissibility test, Canadian Criminal Laws and procedures play a huge role.
For example, any individual in any given application, if he/she is criminally charged, convicted or found to be involved in any criminal-like activity, or does not meet the definition of the regulation to establish relationship for immigration purposes, is considered inadmissible under the act and the application is denied.
Within the concept of criminal law, criminal activity may involve a crime committed in a Canadian or source country jurisdiction and the person may get a conviction. For the purpose of the Canadian Immigration act, it does not matter where the crime is committed, the offence will always be compared with the Canadian criminal code and sentences, and evaluation with the inadmissibility test will be applied accordingly.
For applicants and legal professionals it is important to understand the basics of all laws involved in such situations. This course class may assist attendees to learn in detail for better case assessment.
