Hi, and welcome to BE.

Other people's experiences will vary massively, depending on the visa they were applying for, the severity of the conviction and how long ago it was - obviously those that needed criminal rehab will have had a very different experience to those that were deemed rehabilitated, etc.

If you can be a bit more specific about your own circumstances (you don't have to give info on the conviction if you don't want to, but I just mean if you'll need rehab or not, and the type of visa you'll be applying for), then people who were in the same situation can give you their stories.

Good luck.

When did the suspended sentence end? You'll be eligible to apply for criminal rehab when five years have passed from that date. It can take up to a year to get, so you'll need to factor that in to your plans.

HTH a bit, good luck.

No probs. In case you haven't seen it yet, this is the info you need from the CIC website, including the application forms for rehab - http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/informa...conviction.asp
