Understanding criminality and loss of permanent residence
A permanent resident loses their permanent residence status and faces deportation from Canada if they become inadmissible on grounds of serious criminality. Depending on the circumstances, even people who came to Canada as refugees may be deported. Permanent residents can also lose their status on grounds of serious criminality, security grounds, organized criminality, international crimes or misrepresentation.
What you can do?
Springwind Immigration encourage permanent residents to apply for citizenship as soon as they are eligible, for themselves and for their children. Recent changes to the rules make it easier for minors to become citizens even if their parents can’t. Citizens cannot be deported.
Appeal or no appeal?
As a general rule, permanent residents can appeal a decision to strip them of their status and deport them. However, permanent residents who are inadmissible on grounds of serious criminality have no appeal if: They have been sentenced in Canada to prison for 6 months or more, or The crime was committed outside of Canada.
Why an appeal matters?
The appeal is crucial because permanent residents can raise humanitarian factors for why they should not be deported, such as: they came to Canada as a child and have lived most of their life in this country; they have young children who would be affected if their parent is deported; they are living with mental health issues which would be seriously worsened if they were deported.
