  3. I'm going to venture at no, but speak with a Canadian immigration attorney.

    The answer provided is general in nature and should not be construed as legal advice as not all facts are know by the attorney, nor does the answering of this question create an attorney client relationship.


  4. US and Canada share info regarding criminal records as US citizens with convictions that makes them inadmissible are stopped from entering Canada at the border. However check with a Canadian immigration lawyer.
