New Change in Criminal Code for Impaired Driving Wreaks Havoc for Immigrants – June 21 2018

Immigration Newsweek

The sentence for impaired driving under the Criminal Code has been increased from 5 years to ten years as C-46 received Royal Assent this week.  The effective date is in 6 months.  Consequently, an impaired driving conviction will be Serious Criminality under IRPA Immigration law.  This will trigger major consequences for PRs and Foreign Nationals regarding inadmissibility in addition to the fact that  it will eliminate deemed rehabilitation for impaired.
