Knowing exactly what constitutes grounds for deportation in Canada is very important for every immigrant. Following Are The Situations That Can Cause Deportation
Committing a serious crime that has a maximum prison term of 10 year or more in Canada. e.g., Murder, kidnapping.
The theft of over $5,000 or robbery without a firearm (robbing with a firearm is a serious crime). Also if an immigrant tries to flee police.
Possession of a restricted weapon with ammunition
Assault causing bodily harm, with or without a firearm
Using or possessing a stolen or forged credit card
DUI – Driving under influence of drugs or alcohol will result in a deportation. Being convicted of a DUI offence is a very serious thing. After 2018, Canada has adopted a zero tolerance policy against drunk or drugged drivers.
In the same vein, reckless driving that cause severe bodily harm or death to another person may be a reason for deportation. For example, driving way above the speed limit in a suburban area and hitting a pedestrian.
Another direct cause for deportation is committing what is called an “aggravated felony.” Drug felonies: trafficking drugs (including 3 kg or more of marijuana), the production of synthetic drugs, or the cultivation of marijuana
In addition to this, if you are convicted of committing 2 or more minor crimes, that may also cause for deportation as well.
National security reasons: An act against the government of Canada. To be caught in acts of espionage(spying), subversion (try to overthrow a government), terrorism, or any associate with organizations that do these things.
International or human rights violations: war crimes, crimes against humanity (such as genocide), or being a senior officer in a government that commit crimes against humanity.
