When foreign nationals are not allowed to come to Canada, they are said to be ‘inadmissible’ under Canada’s immigration law. Inadmissibility could also cause a permanent resident or foreign nationals already in Canada to be removed.

Being inadmissible into Canada could result from various issues like criminal conviction, medical-related issue, financial status, or false representation on the part of the individual.

Some inadmissibility situations are irreversible and are said to be a permanent ban from entering Canada, whilst some are reversible and can be resolved.

Overcoming inadmissibility is possible through temporary solutions like Temporary Resident Permit (TRP) or permanent solutions like Rehabilitation, Record Suspension or Humanitarian and Compassionate grounds (H&C).
