Hello,

My question is if a person charged with shoplifting in Toronto, fingerprinted by local police, and in the court it was considered as summary offense and did not lead to any conviction (because of diversion program)How it is going to affect citizenship process? CIC website talks about convicted indictable offense but my case in neither consider conviction nor indictable.

FYI, when I applied for citizenship, my record was clear and it happened after I submitted my application.
Thanks

Then it won't have an effect on your citizenship application unless you were given probation.

1. Because you haven't been convicted of anything if the charge was withdrawn
