A mistaken assumption that United States citizens often make is assuming that Canadian laws are uniform to American laws. Often times, United States citizens will come to Canada and be denied entry because of what they presume to be a “minor” conviction in the past. It is important to note that, any criminal conviction may be held against someone wanting to enter Canada.
In addition to this, what many United States citizens do not know is that, in Canada, driving under the influence (DUI) is a serious crime. If you are in the position of wanting to enter Canada with a DUI offence, chances are, you will be denied entry to Canada. This being said, it is still possible to enter Canada depending on your circumstances.
