  13. Sister help me sponsorship refusal due to doubt me criminal inadmissible if I go Interpol and check criminal records may accept me

  14. I am in uganda Africa last week immigration of Canada sent me this letter please help me This refers to your sponsorship application for the above mentioned person.

    I have assessed your application against the requirements specified in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).

    Section R156(1)(a) of IRPR states:

    The following persons are ineligible to be a party to a sponsorship:

    (a) a person who has been convicted in Canada of the offence of murder or an offence set out in Schedule I or II to the Corrections and Conditional Release Act, regardless of whether it was prosecuted by indictment, if a period of five years has not elapsed since the completion of the person’s sentence.

    As part of the sponsorship application, each sponsor must submit a copy of a criminal record check (non-vulnerable sector check) issued within 6 months prior to application submission. Based on the information provided, I am not satisfied that one or more sponsors are not ineligible to be a party to a sponsorship as per IRPR 156(1). As a result, your sponsorship application is refused.

  15. Thank you for this info. Not sure if you're still answering Q's. Would the person be inadmissible for PR if he was arrested in the US in 2015 on minor misdemeanor, but no court was held and the case was dropped.

  18. What if the criminal records place has refused to give you a police certificate due to a past conviction? What happens then?
