Property crime is a broad term that covers a wide variety of criminal offences, ranging from theft, fraud, and breaking and entering to extortion, counterfeiting, embezzlement, and robbery. All property offences are serious, but cases range from minor shoplifting charges to a multi-million-dollar fraud cases. Because these offences involve allegations of dishonesty, convictions can have serious consequences for your reputation, opportunities for employment, and on your ability to travel, particularly to the United States. A conviction for crimes of dishonesty can also have serious implications on immigration status, making it much harder to become a citizen or permanent resident, and could even result in deportation from Canada.
