If you have committed these offenses, you will be not able to get into Canada.


Temporary Resident Permit Canada shared that,

"Foreign nationals who have been arrested or convicted of a criminal offense anywhere in the world, that if committed in Canada could be classified as an indictable offense, may be deemed ineligible to enter Canada. Attempting to enter Canada while considered inadmissible due to criminality can result in a person being denied entry to Canada. Only the equivalent Canadian law determines whether or not a person with a criminal record is admissible to cross the border. Consequently, for crimes committed in the United States, it does not matter if the offense is a misdemeanor or felony."
