CANADA BORDER
SERVICES AGENCY

****************************
SAULT STE. MARIE - In January, officers at the Sault Ste. Marie POE (port of entry) conducted more than 309 immigration interviews resulting in the issuance of 12 visitor records, 31 work permits, one study permit, and five Temporary Resident Permits.

Fifteen individuals were given the option of voluntarily withdrawing their application to enter Canada.

On January 23, a lone teenage traveller arrived at the POE seeking entry to visit a friend.

After interviewing the teenager further, CBSA officers determined that her intention was to meet an adult male whom she had met in Canada during the previous summer.

Sault Ste. Marie Police Services were called to investigate the matter and subsequently arrested and charged the adult male with sexual interference, sexual exploitation, sexual assault and possessing child pornography.

The teenager returned to the United States and was reunited with her family.

Also on January 23, a male U.S. resident was seeking entry into Canada.

Officers conducted a criminal records check and discovered that the individual had several convictions including driving under the influence, assault with a dangerous weapon, failure to stop at the scene of an accident resulting in serious impairment/ death and reckless driving.

He was deemed inadmissible to Canada due to his criminality and was given the option of voluntarily withdrawing his application to enter Canada.

He returned to the United States.
