Default Caution question

Hello all,

to my shame I received a caution from the police about 12 years ago. It was for common assault. I got drunk and punched someone.

Does anyone know how long a police caution like this stays active? Would it prevent me from getting permanent residency?

I have an idea from reading other threads that a caution will not show up after 5 years - I hope this is the case!

Thanks in advance,

M

If it was over 12 years ago and just a caution then in my opinion you would not be found inadmissible into Canada if that is your only arrest and charge.
It would still need to be disclosed on any application and for PR status as you would need to supply Police certificates for all countries lived in for over 6 months.
I wouldn't lose sleep over this.
