Any applicant for temporary residence (visitors, students and workers) or permanent residence in Canada may be found inadmissible to Canada for reasons set out in the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act:

If you have been found inadmissible under one of the eleven grounds of inadmissibility in Canada, we can be able to help you. Generally, the officer is required to send the applicant(s) a letter advising them that they may be inadmissible and setting out the grounds upon which the officer is basing his allegation(s).  This is called a “Procedural Fairness Letter.”  If you have received a procedural fairness letter for misrepresentation, health reasons, criminality, you should contact our office as soon as possible as you may only have a few days to answer your procedural fairness letter. It will give you a fixed number of days (usually 30) in which to submit a response which will allay the officer’s concerns.

You could also have a criminal record and may wish to Come to Canada because you have family in Canada. In this case an application can be made at a Port of Entry for a Temporary Resident Permit (only for Visa Exempt countries) or at a Consulate to apply for Criminal Rehabilitation or Temporary Resident Permit
