Well you have to declare the arrest—it is also asked in the ETA application.

Yes they can definitely look up US immigration details as the US and Canada share this information with one another.

just try it out for just $7. I am not sure if it would be helpful to submit documents pertaining to the clearance—I would guess it would

When you say ‘try it out’ do you mean don’t declare it and see if it is accepted?

I wasn’t sure if that would a) but a black mark on my name or b) be accepted but then be rejected at the airport when I arrive?

I mean try applying for the ETA while declaring everything truthfully.

like i said, they ask if you’ve ever been arrested so you have to declare that as well.

I am not as familiar with dealing with prior arrests/convictions (even if you were cleared), so I defer to the other members on this one.

Yes ok cool thanks for your advice. I can’t remember there being an opportunity to declare when I did my USA one but hopefully there’s a way on this Canadian one! Have a good day.

yes. There is a question about whether you have criminal charges/convictions.
