Entering Canada with DUI
Entry To Canada With A Drunk Driving Conviction
If you have been arrested or convicted for Driving Under the Influence of alcohol (DUI), you may be criminally inadmissible to Canada. This can affect your ability to enter Canada as a visitor, as well as preclude candidate eligibility across all Canadian immigration programs. Even the criminal inadmissibility of a dependent or accompanying family member due to DUI can have significant implications.
Drunk driving charges are prosecuted under a variety of designations around the world. Driving Under the Influence (DUI), Driving While Intoxicated (DWI), Driving While Impaired (DWI), Driving While Ability Impaired (DWAI), Operating While Intoxicated (OWI), Operating a Motor Vehicle While Intoxicated (OMVI), Wet Reckless, are all examples of charges that can result from drinking and driving. Canadian immigration authorities pay no attention to the manner in which your impaired driving conviction was processed
