For those who have gone to Saskatchewan

Postby ducksbuck » Thu Mar 31, 2011 9:24 am

I am hoping to go up in 2012, but 2 of my group have some criminal background from 12 yrs ago. We were reading that theyare deemed as inadmissible, but there is a process that costs a bit of money to get them to be able to go. Otherwise, one of them read that if it has been over 10 yrs, it is up to the border guard as to weather or not they can get in. Have any of you faced this problem, and what was the outcome?

You should contact the Canadian authorities and verify any issues like that before going to the border and risking being turned away.

I have been to canada (including Saskatchewan) many times.

They are NOT the US, and they take crime, including DUI, rather serious. I would do my homework, if you think you can smile and BS your way in, you are mistaken.

Your posse sounds interesting....records exist for a reason.

Not talking smiles and BS,,,,,,,,,talking about following the rules stated in their government website. It states that people can convince a crossing guard of rehibilitation.

It is not the border guard that you have to convince. I think you have to write a letter to the Border service in
Ottawa long ahead before you plan your trip and supply them with all of the info of your records.

The website I have is the website for the border services out of Ottawa. It is a bit confusing, cause it sounds like there are several options or possibilities, but the best does look like an application you can mail and if you put "for info only" it is free and will tell you weather you can get across without doing anything further. Looks like the same application with $200 will likely get you a permit to get accross unless your crime was too serious or too recent. Or it looks like you can take your chance at the border and possibly get turned away, or possibly pay the $200, or may not even get checked(untill further research, this is not an option). Part of it does say that you can go to the border and request an interview to prove rehabilitation with a guard, then you are at his mercy.

The ap sounds like the letter format that Rem is talking about. We won't go if we don't feel confident about ALL of us getting across. Right now we have time, so just doing research and figuring it out.

When my neighbor went on his caribou hunt he had to recieve a "pardon" for a DUI that is over 20, maybe even 30 years old. I think took a combo of a phone call and requesting a document to be filled out and mailed someplace in canadaland.

I would NOT go to the border and hope for the best. If you think they won't turn you away, you are wrong. If you think your buddies won't go and shoot hundreds of mallards while you sit in International Falls, your probably still wrong.
