How will my criminal record affect my refugee status?

Refugees with criminal records may have their refugee status removed and be deported from Canada. A refugee’s right to apply for Permanent Residency may be removed by having a criminal conviction. At the very least, the discovery of any kind of criminal record, even where there was no finding of guilt, will result in complications to the immigration application.

If the individual’s application is part of a family application for permanent residency the discovery of the criminal record by Immigration Canada may jeopardize the application of everyone in the family. It may even result in the entire family being deported.
