    I have a question. I am a permanent resident of Canada.

    I was charged with theft (for which max punishment is upto 10 years in Canada).. but this was nolle prosequi (prosecuter declined to prosecute in US).
    Later they charged with a negotiated plea of guilty for Tresspassing to Land.

    Even though the theft charge is NOLLE PROSEQUI d in United states, will this create any in admissability in canada

    The incident occured in the US and you were charged in the US? What punishment did you receive for 'Trespassing to Land'? If you have completed whatever penalty was assigned you, you probably would be admissable.

    Hopefully Panusa will see this and give you a more sure answer.

    Good luck to you.

    You were charged in the U.S. but are a permanent resident of Canada, are you living in the States? Did you serve time in the U.S. or pay a fine for Trespassing to Land?
