I received a pardon for my crime. Can I enter Canada?
It depends. If you received a Canadian record suspension or pardon (as it was formerly called), you are no longer inadmissible because of that conviction and can likely enter Canada.
If you received a pardon or discharge from another country, check with the IRCC office closest to you for more information.
