  • Deemed rehabilitated– Enough time has passed since being convicted of the crime.
  • Applied for rehabilitation– You are not likely to commit new crimes.
  • Were granted Record Suspension (Pardon) – You will no longer be inadmissible to Canada. The officer at the border will most likely check to make sure you are not inadmissible for other reasons.
