Default Re: criminal record

My understanding is that Citizenship and Immigration Canada has the ability to run extensive checks on people from other countries, but often doesn't bother to do so in the case of work permit applicants.

However, the application form for a work permit asks:

Have you or any member of your family ever committed, been arrested or charged with any criminal offence in any country?

If you answer, Yes, I'm sure they'll insist you apply for criminal rehabilitation before you do anything else. That would add time, possibly up to a year, to the process.

If you answer, No, they may not catch you this time but, if they later find out that you've lied to them, they'll blacklist you. If you're in Canada at the time that they find out, it would be grounds for deportation, loss of whatever visa you hold at the time, even loss of Canadian citizenship.
