Immigration Canada


Over 1,000 permanent residents have been deported from Canada for non-compliance with Immigration rules.

Canada is a good and welcoming country, however one must follow the guidelines, otherwise things will not be so easy. According to CBSA (“Canada Border Services Agency”) around 1,400 immigrants, with their permanent resident visas, are deported per year for failing to comply with Immigration determinations.

We already spoke about Canada being a country of immigrants. Thousands of people arrive in Canada every year. All this immigrants face an extensive immigration program, well detailed, long lasting, expensive and well planned, and may last for years. However, having a permanent resident visa does not mean you are a citizen with full powers, which many people dream of.

Immigration Canada determines that a permanent resident person to remain the status in Canada must live in Canada for at least two years (730 days) in a five year period (during this time you must be physically in Canada. Otherwise, Canada will deport or not accept your entry. Between the years of 2010 and 2014, the average number people deported was 1,400 persons per year, just because they did not observe this basic rule. In Quebec region this number triples.

Obviously many appeal to the “Humanitarian & Compassionate grounds”, claiming a variety of reasons. However, only 1 in 10 appeals succeed. If you are an immigrant with a permanent resident status, do not make mistakes, or you will lose your status.
