About Security Clearance for Canada Immigration
Security clearance is part and parcel of applying for permanent residency or Canadian citizenship. This may also be required of you when you make an application as a temporary visitor, student, or as a seasonal worker. A security clearance certificate, for instance, is one security clearance that you may be asked to provide depending on your application (or its equivalent in your country).
A security clearance certificate is provided as proof that you do not have a criminal record, or if you do have one, is proof of your past criminal record. Security clearance certificates may be called differently depending on your country of origin, so it is best to liaise with your local law authority to obtain one.
This attestation of your criminal record (or lack thereof) will be used by Canadian immigration officials to determine whether or not you pose a security risk to Canada. Applicants 18 and above will typically be required to obtain one prior to submitting an application – and obtaining one can take a long time for certain countries, so it is ideal to obtain all necessary security clearances pertinent to your application prior to submission.
Certain individuals that have a criminal record may be inadmissible according to Canadian immigration law; however, depending on the circumstances of your application, and a thorough evaluation of your criminal record, you may still be able to enter Canada temporarily or permanently – we suggest that you reach out to us regarding past criminal history, as admissibility will be evaluated on a case-to-case basis.
