Recent changes in 2011 with Canadian Immigration Rules and Procedures, allows for more rapid processing of Canadian Certificate of Rehabilitation Applications.
If 5 years or more have NOT elapsed since completion of a prior criminal offense, you may still qualify for border crossing by applying for a Temporary Resident Permit (formally processed as a Canadian Ministers Permit or Waiver.) A complete application for Certificate of Criminal Rehabilitation is a necessary part of this process.
Obtaining the services of someone who can prepare you for entering Canada with a criminal record allows for a much more expeditious result.

1) You are a U.S. citizen and have committed a criminal offense in the U.S.A. (whether juvenile or adult) that is regarded a felony and punishable in Canada. See the link below for what offenses constitute a felony in Canada. And;
2) It has been a minimum of 5 years since you completed ALL terms of your sentence, including fines, jail time and probation/parole.

I am a businessman in Seattle, Washington who has consistently been limited in my career by my inability to travel across the Canadian border and conduct business in Canada due to an aged U.S. felony record. After wasting years and thousands of dollars on U.S. and Canadian Immigration Attorneys, I was referred to Joy by word of mouth from my business colleague who believed that her extensive mitigation and criminal justice experience would prove her to be a successful service provider in obtaining Canadian entry. I found that despite law enforcement delays and constant international political changes, Joy’s application strategy and thorough preparation made the difference. She forged the way for me to obtain my Canadian Certificate of Rehabilitation and enter Canada with a previous criminal record. I can now freely cross the Canadian border without worry or delay thus allowing me more business opportunities and international corporate success."
