Reasons why you may be denied entry

A Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) officer can deny your entry for various reasons. The following are frequent examples: failure to demonstrate sufficient ties (financial, family, job) to a person’s home country, medical issues that can put a strain on Canada’s health care system or represent a threat to the public, or having committed an offense that may render a you inadmissible to Canada. We will focus on the latter of these.

It is often frustrating for a traveler to reach to a port of entry and discover that they are not able to enter Canada. The frustration is even at a higher level when that person traveled by air or a long distance journey by land, because you are turned around immediately by a CBSA officer to either wait for the next flight back or the long driving journey home. The tension is taken to another level when the person is traveling for business purposes and he or she is blindsided by the refusal, and the employer is unaware of the conviction or the offense committed.  

However, the person is not left without any options. One can apply for Temporary Resident Permit to overcome the refusal or denied entry to Canada. We have successfully assisted numerous individuals in such cases, while keeping in mind the sensitive nature and the negative impact it can have on the person’s employment.

Our team of professionals has extensive experience in dealing with these matters. We understand how difficult this can be for people, because it can have lasting impact on their professional, as well as, their personal life.
