The above table is a list of common types of white-collar
crimes, and is certainly not exhaustive. One important thing to
note is that all of the above crimes are punishable as hybrid or
indictable offences. This means that applicants who have been
convicted for white-collar crimes are extremely likely to be
criminally inadmissible, since hybrid crimes are considered
equivalent to indictable crimes under IRPA, and both therefore
cause inadmissibility. White-collar crime is a very large umbrella
term, that encompasses things as small as altering a scale so that
everything comes off as heavier at the cash register to something
as big as embezzlement or insider trading for millions of dollars.
Since the boundaries of what constitutes white-collar offences are
so large, and difficult to define, it is safest to have a
specialist see whether or not you qualify for entry, or are
criminally inadmissible to Canada.
Many white-collar crimes constitute criminal inadmissibility; so
