Inadmissibility to Canada is classified into two categories:

• Refusing admission to Canada: Refusing a visa due to a criminal conviction, medical condition, misrepresentation, or security risk
• Affecting a PR application: Preventing an individual from acquiring (or retaining) Permanent Residence status as a result of a criminal conviction, medical malpractice, misrepresentation, or failing to comply with a residency obligation.

Individuals may be declared ineligible for one of the following reasons:

• Inadmissibility on a criminal basis
