Toronto lawyers dedicated to helping people charged with impaired driving

Indian IT worker charged with DUI, impaired driving, over 80, or failure/refusal

We have a lot of clients who are immigrants from India who work in the IT industry and get charged with DUI related offences in Canada. Sometimes it is the spouse or partner of the accused who calls us for help. They are often afraid of losing their job.

If the accused is not a Canadian Citizen they are also subject to deportation upon conviction. This includes those charged with impaired operation under Section 320.14(1)(a) and/or failing or refusing to provide a breath sample under Section 320.15(1) of the Criminal Code.

For immigrants from India who work in IT being charged with impaired driving presents a significant risk to their immigration status.

Many have studied and worked for years abroad, have family back home in India who are proud of and count on them, and have attended college or university in Canada or the U.S. Many work for established large and midsize private companies in Canada as consultants or on contract. Some work for the banks or for the government.

Such jobs present an incredible opportunity for advancement. They also require a lot of time, work, and dedication to progress up the ladder of success. Whether the accused is a new employee on the cusp of their career, or a seasoned pro who has spent a long time working to achieve their goals, a DUI charge puts everything they have worked for at risk.

Indian immigrants who get charged with DUI offences range from established Canadian Citizens who are concerned they will lose their job or go to jail to those in the IRCC/immigration system that are students, on work permits, or permanent residents (PR).

They have a lot to lose as a result of what is often a stupid mistake, peer pressure to drive drunk, or a miscalculation of how much alcoloh they consumed. In addition to potentially going to jail, being convicted of DUI in Canada carries at a minimum a sentence of a criminal record, having their immigration status revoked, deportation, and being denied entry into other countries such as the United States, the UK, Australia and New Zealand in the future.

If you are charged with a DUI related offence (impaired operation, over 80, failure/refusal, etc.) in Canada it is imperative that you consult with a criminal lawyer immediately.

Sometimes such charges can be dropped, withdrawn or reduced so that it does not have a negative impact on your immigration status, studies, job, or future travel abilities. Just because you are charged with an impaired driving related offence does not mean you are guilty or that a court will find you guilty at trial.

There are many ways to contest such allegations such as applications under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms and opposing how the evidence was collected and analyzed by the police.
