The Burglary charges and convictions alone are deemed as serious criminality and make you inadmissible. You will need to apply for rehabilitation through CHC London to have any chance of getting to Canada either as a visitor or worker. The waiver in your case will cost $1000 as serious criminality is involved.

I am in the same boat, in the early stages of trying to get over to Canada (in talks with employers) and also in my past over 20 years ago I have convictions for public disorder and assault on the police, I was fined each occasion. I have not been in trouble for 22years now, I don’t understand the rehabilitation process, I was hoping that due to the fact I have not been in trouble for a long time that rehabilitation would be proved, is that not the case?

its very confusing, i have read because there's no problems for over 10 years you are classed as rehabilitated and its very hard to talk to someone at the embassy, i hold very high government security clearance over here but all the advice im getting is contradicting itself

I think that it's actually more a case of being allowed to apply for rehabilitation once 10 years has elapsed.

A couple of the convictions of the OP are considered serious criminal offences as FL pointed out. There is NO deemed rehabilitation for those types of crimes. Can apply for rehabilitation after 5 years after completion of the offence. Until s/he applies and received rehab, is inadmissible as either a visitor or PR.

Believe me for a Burglary charge you will never be deemed rehabilitated you must apply for it as serious criminality is involved plus with all the other charges and convictions the 10 year is not applicable.

The 5 years is eligible to apply for rehabilitation. The Burglary conviction carries a sentence of more than 10 years in Canada so will never be deemed rehabilitated.

It's always a trade one can fall back into in hard times, if the job hunt doesn't go so well, saving the Gov many $$$ in Employment insurance.

You're not reading all of the info then. The CIC website clearly states -

'In all cases, you may only be deemed rehabilitated if the crime would be punishable in Canada by a maximum prison term of less than 10 years.'

So deemed rehabilitation wouldn't apply to you.
