I have a criminal record from UK. I was convicted of an offence 'Fraud' and was sentenced to 18 months of imprisonment. After 9 months of my imprisonment, due to good behavior in custody, I was released and was monitored externally by the local probation officer. Today, it's been 3 years & 8 months since I was released from the prison. My conviction becomes spent in September 2020. As this could affect my PR in UK, I voluntarily exited from UK at my own cost and returned back to my home country. My question here is, Can I apply for a Canada Permanent residency? If so, how many years of PCC is required? Are there any options to apply for a pardon from UK? Could you please guide me or assist me in this regards as to lead a better life.
