Multiple-entry visas cannot be valid longer than the validity of a passport and are valid for a maximum period of five years.
If, while visiting Canada, a person also visits the continental United States (with a United States visa) and then returns to Canada within the period of stay granted on his/her initial arrival in Canada, that person does not require a visa in order to re-enter Canada; a single-entry visa will be sufficient.
With few exceptions, people who have a criminal record are criminally inadmissible to Canada unless they have been determined to be rehabilitated after an assessment by a Canadian immigration officer.
