A sentence is a decree of punishment. In law, a sentence forms the final explicit act of a judge-ruled process and also can generally involve a decree of imprisonment, fines and other punishments against a defendant convicted of a crime.
According to IRPA Rules of interpretation A33(1), the facts that constitute inadmissibility include facts arising from omissions and sentence of conviction. Immigration officers have the authority to form decisions accordingly.
This seminar will focus on the legality of sentencing under criminal code and its intervention in IRPA with related consequences.
