Some people are not allowed to enter Canada. They are said to be “inadmissible” under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) as described in this section.

A Canadian immigration officer will decide if you can enter Canada when:

  • you submit your visa application or electronic travel authorization (eTA)
    application, or
  • you go to an entry point.

There are several reasons why we might prohibit you from entering Canada, for example, security, legal and medical reasons.
