hmmm good question man. seem to remember the wording of the canadian visa application excluding drink driving from the list of things they want to know about... in any case, it doesnt appear on the police clearance certificate i got, so i didnt mention it either.

My friend has just had his granted and he had a drink driving charge. He just gave them all the information and the police check. Took about 3 weeks to be granted. We applied from the UK
