Criminal Rehabilitation Canada


New Member
Hello all, I have a question regarding criminal rehabilitation for entry into Canada. According to the IRCC site, it says:

"you may be deemed to have been rehabilitated if at least ten years have passed since you completed the sentence imposed upon you, or since you committed the offence, if the offence is one that would, in Canada, be an indictable offence punishable by a maximum term of imprisonment of less than ten years."

Obviously there is a big difference between committing the offense and completion of the sentence. There is no mention on the site about which date they go by. If convicted in 2012 but sentenced in 2014 for 1 year sentence (completion in 2015), will deemed rehabilitated be in 2022 or 2025? Fingers crossed that it could mean 2022. Otherwise, will have to apply for rehabilitation because 2025 is a long ways away.
