Toronto Immigration Lawyers Advising Employees on Inadmissibility into Canada due to a Criminal Record 

Previous criminal convictions can present a serious difficulty for individuals wishing to enter Canada, whether for work, study, or other purposes.  The issue is made more complicated by the fact that Canada has a stricter interpretation for certain acts, which in other countries may be considered less serious.

At Sultan Lawyers in Toronto, our workplace immigration lawyers regularly advise Canadian, U.S. and international companies on criminal admissibility matters where they impact worker mobility.  We understand the importance of continuing a company’s success, including ensuring that important assets are available to assist in expansion and growth, and can assist with someone’s entry into Canada where it may be complicated by a minor or major criminal infraction.

At Sultan Lawyers, we assist companies and business to ensure that they have the people they need in Canada to facilitate their profitability and continued growth.  We regularly advise on the following worker mobility issues:

  • Criminal conviction in a worker’s home country;
  • Securing clearance for entry to Canada;
