What is inadmissibility?

It means an individual cannot enter Canada and must leave if they are already in the country.


Who may be ordered to appear before the Immigration Division for an admissibility hearing?

If the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) has reasons to believe an individual should not enter or remain in Canada, they may be reffered for an Admissibility Hearing. A member of the Immigration Division of the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada (IRB) will then decide if they are admissible and issue an order. In some cases, the person may be able to appeal the removal order to the Immigration Appeal Division (IAD) of the IRB.


A person may be considered inadmissible if she/he;


  • has failed to conform to the law (IRPA).

  • is a threat to the security of Canada.

  • has committed act of human rights violation.

  • has committed a criminal act.

  • has misrepresented.

  • has a specific health condition (in some cases).

  • does not have enough funds.
