Admissibility Hearings

ADMISSIBILITY HEARINGS

An admissibility hearing is held to determine whether or not you are admissible into Canada. That is, whether or not you are allowed to come into or stay in Canada if you are a permanent resident or foreign national.

An admissibility hearing is held to determine whether or not you are admissible into Canada. That is, whether or not you are allowed to come into or stay in Canada if you are a permanent resident or foreign national. It is held at the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada. The decision-maker at your hearing will make a decision as to whether or not you may enter or stay in Canada.

Admissibility hearings can be started for any of the following reasons:

  • your criminal convictions inside or outside of Canada;
  • proof you committed crimes outside Canada
  • your membership in a criminal organization
  • human or international rights violations
  • you made a misrepresentation in any of your immigration matters
  • failure to comply with the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act

If you are found to be inadmissible, a removal order will be issued against you. Some permanent residents and foreign nationals may appeal to the Immigration Appeal Division. If you are not eligible for an appeal, you can seek judicial review of the Immigration Division decision to issue a removal order against you.
Admissibility hearings often deal with legally complex issues. It is therefore recommended that you hire a lawyer who has experience with admissibility hearings.
