Yes it will show up. It is not your passport of nationality, it is the place where it took place. When the officer scans your passport, it will flag the the officer that your name, place of birth and date of birth matches the description of a person with a previous criminal record. Then the officer is going to send you to a secondary inspection where they will find out that is you and next thing you know you will be refused of entry.

You should contact the Canadian Embassy or High Comission BEFORE attempting to enter Canada. If you try to enter, chances are you will be refused of entry.

The US does the same thing to people with convictions travelling to the USA. If you have never been stopped at the border in Canada, apply for a pardon in the USA. Once you are in the system as denied...you are screwed.
When your pardon is complete they remove your record form the database..then you can enter Canada no problem.

Just make sure you have no record of entering Canada before you apply for the pardon...
