A: Dear Sir/Madam,

Canadian Immigration Law is not as harsh on criminal offenses as US Immigration laws. Under Canadian Immigration law, you could still be admissible depending on the nature of the crime, the length of time since the crime was committed and whether you can demonstrate that you are "deemed rehabilitated" or "applied for rehabilitation." In addition, if you can show that you have been pardoned or received a temporary resident card. You should consult with an experienced immigration lawyer if you desire to immigrate to Canada to fully analyze your situation and advise you relative to your chances and the course of action.

Best wishes,
