Entering Canada with DWI on record?

Recommended Posts

Have 6 guys traveling into Canada this June for a fishing trip. Two of the guys have DWI's on their driving record.

Both were more then 15 years ago. Can we expect any trouble at the border?

I have been told if the offenses were more then 10 years old

the offenders have been "rehabilitated" and should have no

problems.

Any advise would be helpful. Thanks

My advise would be have them ride together, so they can go home together if necessary. We were there two years ago and our neighbors at camp had two guys turned back because of old dwi's.

Should be ok. Call the number in the "To bring, or not to bring" thread....They're answers hold up better than mine. wink.gif

I was up in March and my brother-in-law had one that was 16 years old. They checked our licenses at the border and they said we were fine to go.

As sugguested PHONE ahead of time and do NOT lie at the border. I spoke to an Immigration officer last week about this and he sugguested the only time they would turn somebody back is if they lied especially if the DWI is over 10 yrs. BUT do not lie.

I read that if its over 10 years, you are pardoned. but I am not sure if you have more than one, all over 10 years this applys.

I went through this exact thing last fall. We went to the border and they asked us all to step inside where we each individually walked to to an officer (and mine was a female). She asked us for our licenses and asked if we had any felonies or any other charges. I said no, just like the rest of my group (but I did have a DWI 20 years ago). After she asked us all the same questions, she did a run on our licenses and came back and called out for me. I went up to her and she asked if I mis understood any of her previous questions and i said no. She ripped me a new one! She wanted to know why she found my DWI and I told her that I was under the impression that they only cared about the last 10 years. She kept rippin! She said i didn't respect them Canadians and so on ... She finally said the ONLY reason i am letting you in is because you have 5 other people waiting for you so I said C-U bye! and we were gahndi! If you have a DWI, call the border and they will fax you some paper work. I don't know the process after that but the best bet is to be honest. Another recommendation is that if you have had a RECENT DWI, stay home and save your group some hassels. This is "fact" and it just happened last fall.

So Jed, what are you going to do this year when we go up to Canada again? Are you going to get the paperwork or just when they ask about your 20 year old DWI just admit to it? Lucky you had 5 good looking, law abiding guys with you and the nice lady border patrol let you go with us. If it was up to me you still would be sitting at the border.

Listen to me pegleg... The "only" reason she let me in was because of MY good looks! She didn't want to let you bunch of scrownges in without at least one good looking American with them. The locals would have tore you guys up because you would have looked like an easy target! I will do the paper work this year for sure. I think I better get good at that part.

    • We were on Kinn's boats out of Algoma.  
    • A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you. 
    • It was slow for us this year, steelhead on Sunday afternoon, and only a couple nice kings on Monday. But the potential for a big fish is there again this year.   My friend is a little on the small side, always makes nice fish look HUGE.   My early morning fish came in at 23.6 lbs. A pound and a half heavier than the top pic.      
    • Nice work, that looks incredible. And I'm a big fan of the grey motif.   Thanks for the show and write up.
    • Yeah we brought it up to our cabin and sleep in it if there are a bunch of people up there. Thanks!
    • Are you guys using it as a summer camper as well?  Super Product right there!  😎
    • Thanks! It weighed in over what I thought which was disappointing. It was right around 7000 lbs with full propane tanks and some other stuff in it. We actually weighed it just after getting spray foamed and it was already at like 5000 lbs I’m not sure how others that did the same style steel stud house have a finished weight around 5500 lbs.    The cost in materials was above 20K but below 25 still too scared to finish adding the receipts. We really tried to use the best materials we could find and not cut any corners. When I was pricing stuff out before we started my ballpark was 19K but I forgot to add a tv screws wire and little stuff like that.    Yeah it took a lot of time but I enjoyed it for the most part. I’m actually getting kind of bored now and don’t know what to do with all the free time. 
    • Thanks for taking the time to do a write up and post all the pics! That alone is a big undertaking in itself. Nice work.   any idea what finished weight is for the entire house?    And just a ballpark figure are you willing to share what it costs in material to build something like this?   I can’t imagine how many hours of your own labor you got into this build. I think it turned out amazing.
    • Alright here’s the finished product. I think it turned out pretty nice. Still need a stove/ range but working on it.    Underneath the lift bed there are 7 lights and two speakers. There are 4 lights above the lift bed. The 3 middle lights underneath are on one button the outer 4 are on a different button and above are on a separate button.  55” smart tv recessed into to wall. The speakers really kick out some sound in this thing though. The tv sound comes out of the 5 speakers in the house which are all ran through the stereo and an amp.      Hole lights  Single light above the stove area  This door is for the satellite receiver. The black center piece is tinted acrylic so you can still use the remote with the door shut. The hole just below the tv is also so you can use the tv remote.  Battery monitor  Supply and return water temperatures for the in floor heat. I was actually really surprised I got my 20 degree delta t I calculated for.  Lights above lift bed. Lift bed in lowest position. Could go lower but that’s just where we put the lowest at.  Different height if people are sleeping below.  Folding table.  These are the cabinets inside the bathroom wall. These are only about 9” deep but I think they will be deep enough for a little more storage. The converter is in here as well it is just above the wiring panel. And the large center square is a false front so you can access the tv wires. I think we are going to go with the dry flush toilet. I put a little 12 v outlet in there so it can br ran off the house batteries.     The only other thing I did that i don’t know if others have done is I wired the rear porch light to the reverse wire of the trailer plug. So when you put the truck in revers that porch light comes on and lights everything up.    I think that’s everything. Feel free to ask any questions if you have any. And thanks again to lipripper and others for posting their builds the information was a ton of help and sorry if I copied too much of your design.
