Go to the station where you were booked first.

If there's no record, i.e. the "convicted" record has been expunged, when the Canuck authorities look you up, there'll be nothing there, right? No record. On what basis did that one guy tell you there would be a record? How would they be able to reach back in time with their research, and access a record that no longer exists, but that only existed for a certain window in time?

The only way you can find out for sure is to hire a Canuck immigration lawyer.

Well like I said after asking other sources since I gone through a diversion program such as pretrial intervention that still counts as being "convicted" even though I never serve jailtime for the charge and the charge has been dropped by now anyways. I still don't understand it. but that's what I was told.

You were told wrong information. My police officer father said a diversion is not the same as a conviction. My dad said a diversion happens when the crime isn't very serious and it's a second chance. A diversion should not appear on your record, but checking with the station is a good idea.

After searching online about diversion it's not a form of conviction you're right. So the guy from yahoo answers must not know what he's talking about then.

I'm still going to check and see if my record is actually expunged, but since a diversion doesn't count as a conviction does this means I don't have to apply for criminal rehabilitation then?

I appreciate the people defending me, but I'll ask again. Since I gone through a diversion and it doesn't count as a conviction does this mean I don't have to apply for criminal rehabilitation?

Most likely not.

So I'm not inadmissible and can apply for a study permit then?

A definitive answer would only be available from someone who recently applied under the same circumstances OR a certified immigration advisor.

Taking your answer from an anonymous, public opinion forum is a recipe for disappointment.
