Question Question for Mr. Miller or other Experts

I want to know if a one year exclusion order from early 2004 would have any bearing on a spousal sponsorship application submitted now. The exclusion period has ended & the Canadian spouse has been living in the UK with the British spouse since the exclusion period began. The application is for spousal sponsorship by a Canadian spouse who has been residing exclusively outside of Canada.

3 staff members at the CHC London have said that it would not be considered a bar to entering Canada since after the exclusion has expired it is not held against you, as far as I can tell, the info that CHC London gave me makes sense, as I am free to return to Canada now as a visitor and while I appreciate and admit it was inappropriate for me to overstay in the first place, it would be a bizarre situation for them to allow me entry as a visitor yet deny me PR.

Can you verify that this is indeed the case?

Officially it is the case. But red flag on your file will stay forever and every time you will come to Canada as visitor you will not only be grilled at the port of entry but also you will be granted rather short admission period - weeks, not months.

I understand that that may be the case if you arrive as a visitor, however, it should not affect a spouse PR sponsorship right? I mean yeah they could red flag you, but would it not be in Canada’s best interest to grant you PR and have you in the country legally rather than take a chance on admitting someone for a few weeks as a visitor and possibly have them disappear and overstay again? Not that I would but you can see my logic.

Once you land as PR all your worries are gone.
