Criminal Inadmissibility means a person or applicant for any Canada Visa, will not be admitted or given permission to enter Canada because they have committed or have been convicted of a crime in, or outside Canada.

This is one of the questions that sometimes comes up when I discuss a particular Canada Visa process for Canada to an inquiry.
For this I would like to direct your attention to a part of the Citizenship and Immigration Canada's website, cic.gc.ca, that answers will aim to answer all your questions regarding criminal Inadmissibility which includes answers to questions like:
"I have been charged with a crime but my trial is still under way. Will I be allowed to enter Canada?
No. You are considered criminally inadmissible if:
you have a trial under way;
there is a warrant out for your arrest;
you have charges pending against you; or
an officer has credible information that you committed an offence outside Canada.
When am I eligible to apply for rehabilitation?
You are eligible to apply for rehabilitation if:
you committed a crime outside Canada (for which you were not charged) and five years have passed since or you were convicted of a crime outside Canada and five years have passed since the end of your sentence..."
