Hi everyone, just need some advice!
 
Me and a friend want to go travelling round Canada next year on a worker's visa, but I have a drink driving conviction. It's something I'm deeply ashamed of, and I have learned my lesson.
 
The offence took place December 2008, and my ban was lifted August this year. Apart from this I don't have any other record.
 
Are there any chances I may be declined? Since then I have had good character, and have passed a TEFL teaching course. My friend has a clean record.
 
Any advice please? Thanks!

ask www.bunac.org.uk - they're the experts on working Visas., I'd just give them a ring though and them the theoretical question.

I think you will probably be okay. I would just make sure you leave as much time as possible for the application to go through as it will probably take longer than normal. A guy I know was convicted of drink driving in Canada a couple of weeks ago and he was allowed to stay and work out the rest of his working holiday visa..
