There are a few reasons why you might be refused entry to Canada. Some of these include, but are not limited to,
- Security reasons
- Human rights issues
- Health grounds
- Financial reasons
- Failing to comply with IRPA
- Having an inadmissible family member
If a visa officer considers you a security risk to Canada, you will be refused entry into Canada. This could be in regards to any violence that you have committed or being a part of an organization that is involved with acts of violence or terrorism.
If you have committed a human rights or international rights violation, such as war crimes, you will be denied entry into Canada. This could also be for those who had senior status in a government engaged in crimes against humanity.
Moving on to more common reasons why people have been refused entry to Canada, this includes having past criminal convictions on your records. If you have committed theft to impaired driving, you may be denied entry to Canada.
If your health is found not up to par, in accordance with Canada’s standards, you will be considered a health risk, and therefore be denied entry to Canada.
Financial stability is also a consideration that may have made you inadmissible. You need to show that you are financially self-sufficient while you are in Canada and that you can afford to go home.
Misrepresentation means that you falsified information on your application or during an interview. This will bar you from entering Canada because it shows that what you say cannot be trusted and therefore you may be wishing to illegally stay in Canada.
The governing legislation for immigration is the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act. It is important to follow the laws the act sets out in regard to immigration law.
Many may not realize this, but if a family member of yours is inadmissible for the reasons above, the whole family is considered inadmissible and therefore, you should make sure everyone is clear before applying to come to Canada for through whichever method.
