As one of its objectives, the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) prioritizes the protection of Canadian society from persons who pose a danger to that society, who engage in activities that violate international human rights, who might impose a heavy burden on social services, who have failed to comply with immigration law or who have provided false information to immigration authorities. Any of the above persons are inadmissible as temporary or permanent residents unless they obtain an exemption to overcome their inadmissibility. This course covers inadmissibility categories in great detail, assisting immigration practitioners to become proficient in this area of Canadian Immigration Law. Emphasis is placed on both the applicable legislation and case law.

This course is appropriate for lawyers and paralegals who are members in good standing of a Canadian provincial or territorial law society, citizenship or immigration consultants who are members in good standing of the Immigration Consultants of Canada Regulatory Council, and Notaries who are members in good standing of the Chambre des notaires due Québec.

  • Criminal inadmissibility

  • Inadmissibility due to burden on social services
