Many non-citizens in Canada are unaware of the immigration consequences of a criminal conviction. According to our laws, non-citizens who commit a crime in Canada or outside Canada after their arrival in the country may be penalized under immigration law, in addition to being punished under criminal law (we describe this as “double punishment”). Concretely, this can result for non-citizens in the loss of immigration status and subsequent deportation.
Participants at this webinar will learn about:
What crimes lead to criminal inadmissibility? (Immigration and Refugee Protection Act section 36)
The immigration consequences of committing or being convicted of a crime
Citizenship application as a preventive measure
Presenter Erica Olmstead will provide practical information, guiding front-line workers through challenging aspects of our legislation. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
7 March 2018, 2 pm – 3 pm (Eastern time)
Erica Olmstead is Lawyer at Edelmann & Co in Vancouver.
