Entering Canada with a record requires thoughtful planning. For some, the risk of traveling with a record even on a professionally prepared waiver is too high – and our firm will advise not to move forward and there will be no need to sign a retainer agreement. For others with a compelling need, a waiver at the border is possible with good preparation.
