Travelling to Canada with a criminal record can be a pretty complicated process. Admissibility to Canada depends on the type of the conviction, its severity, and the age of the conviction. In general, minor offenses such as marijuana possession under 30 grams, public intoxication, and indecent exposure do not require permission to enter Canada. More serious offenses such as assault, DUIs, and other drug offenses will require permission to enter the country.
