Subject: How can I Immigrate to Canada as a Skilled worker
  Hello all,

I arrived to the USA in 1999 as a Lawful Permanent Resident. In 2001 I committed a crime of misdemeanor (credit card fraud under USD$800) or as it is name by USA immigration (crime of Moral Turpitude). I was never incarcerated I only got 2 years probation. In 2003 I married a USA citizen and we have to boys 3years and 4 years old. My wife had submitted a petition with INS to grant me my pr status back. In November 2006 ICE showed at my door to get me deported from USA. As a result I am now back in my country of citizenship.

Is now been 2 years since deportation; I am a professional Computer Science Engineer (IT, Network Administrator) and I would like to apply for a Skilled Worker Visa to Canada. I have several questions:
1. Will my previews case of deportation prevent me to obtain the visa?
2. Should I answer yes to the question in the form that says ?Been Ordered to Leave Canada or any other country??
3. Should I answer yes to the question in the form that says ?Charged with an offence or crime in Canada or any other country??
4. Will it help me for my application the fact that I am marry to a US citizen and have US children that will be migrating with me to Canada?
5. Does USA and Canada share or exchange immigration information?

All information will be appreciated, also if you have links where I can find some answers, will be great as well.

Thank you all in advanced, God Bless you.
Bobby.

1. Will my previews case of deportation prevent me to obtain the visa?

No body knows but, in my opinion, you didn´t do something serious that pose security threat to Canada!! Any one can do "mistakes".

2. Should I answer yes to the question in the form that says ?Been Ordered to Leave Canada or any other country??
3. Should I answer yes to the question in the form that says ?Charged with an offence or crime in Canada or any other country??

This can be challenging..If you don´t disclose this info, you will subject your app to immediate rejection once these are discovered. Recall that the immigration officers who review the app´s are not naieve .. The FBI report that you have to submit, the background check will certainly reveal what you try to hide.

My advice:
It is always better to disclose than not to disclose any info. Therefore,
- Answer the Q´s with yes. Provide notarized copies of the supporting documentation. Write a personal statement describng the incidents, the consequences, and your commitment to correct the deficiencies you showed in the past.

4. Will it help me for my application the fact that I am marry to a US citizen and have US children that will be migrating with me to Canada?

No impact.


5. Does USA and Canada share or exchange immigration information?

Yes, for sure. I read some stories posted on forums about how the Canadian intelligence was able to find out "tiny" things in the app´s history (both social and immigration history in the US)..


Await more input from experts..

From reading many posts on this and similar issues over a fair amount of time, I agree with above responses to these questions. I´d emphasis to always answer truthfully. In addition, there´s really no question that these 2 large North American neighbors with the longest unprotected border in the world share all kinds of immigration detail, especially in this post 9/11 world.

Also to add that practically any criminal offense in one´s record is going to be difficult to overcome. Canada is very sensitive to requiring a perfectly clean background of their immigrants. Even applicants with basic DUI convictions are rejected without further consideration.

Richard,

Basically you mean to tell me that I would be rejected for my criminal record? Doesn?t Canada believe that someone can rehab from a mistake? I committed that crime when I was only 19, stupid me for doing it, but is already done and has caused me and my family a lot. Now I am 28 with a Profession and a long work experience from the USA and more from my Country, from which I can provide letters to prove that I have overcome my error and learned from it.

I want to provide my family with the quality of life that they deserve, especially for my two boys that have nothing to do with my mistake, but they are paying for it.

Honestly, I would like to know if I am wasting my time with the idea of immigrating to Canada.

I would appreciate your honest truth on this, plus advices if you have any.

Thank you and God bless you,

Bobby.
