Getting into canada

Postby Shoveler » Fri Jan 20, 2012 6:21 pm

I was charged with contributing alcohol to a minor the minor being 18 . I was wondering how they would view that at the border since you can drink at the age of 18 where I'm going

The best way to determine your status is to contact a Canada border crossing and ask them the question. I know that where I live, the biggie is having a DUI on your record. Good luck!

Call ahead and get what they refer to as a "pardon". I know guys who thought they were going caribou hunting until they got to the border. They will turn you away if you don't have your affairs in order.

For $200 you can send in an application for "rehabilitation" and if approved, you can enter Canada. Certain convictions require a 5 year time since conviction and some a 10 year. I have seen several people turned away at the port of entry who were in the line, ahead of us, for various prior offenses in the 27 years I have been going up to hunt. Here's some interesting reading on the subject:

It is very important to have your visa to enter Canada, if you have that then most likely you will have no problems entering Canada. We have clients that are denied each year for usually a DUI or possession of drugs convictions, even with a visa. It is easier to enter Canada when flying then driving into Canada. A pardon by a judge for a conviction of a crime in the US is not necessarily accepted by the customs officials at the border they have last say as to who is allowed to enter or not. A DUI in the states is a mister meaner in Canada is is a federal offence, so each country can view the same crime differently in the eyes of the law.

This will depend on what your sentence was, how long ago this was and if you have any other criminal convictions (felony or misdemeanor). It also has to equate to an offence in Canada. I would call the border crossing you are thinking of using and talking to an immigration officer.
