Immigration and Refugee Law – Permanent resident status
Two Strikes, You're Out!
The Immigration and Refugee Protection Act states that permanent residents and foreign nationals convicted of certain offences, either in Canada or abroad, may be deported from or not allowed to enter Canada if they are "criminally inadmissible". This slide presentation covers issues faced by permanent residents and foreign nationals who are criminally convicted and gives definitions of "serious criminality" and "criminality". Other topics include what can happen to family members of "criminally inadmissible foreign nationals", appeal rights of permanent residents ordered deported, and domestic violence situations.
Note: This presentation was prepared for people with legal training, such as community legal workers and lawyers, and has legal terms that might not be familiar to a lay audience.
