Can I still go to Canada?
I'm a US citizen wanting to go to Canada. 3 years ago I was arrested, but I was never convicted. The charge was also later dropped and expunged. Is it possible that I'll still get into Canada?

Just see what they tell you.

It's possible. No promises though.
Thank you for asking, I think.

A current passport is required for entry into Canada no matter your nationality. You may also use a Trusted Traveler program card, like NEXUS, or an enhanced drivers license, but you are still required to have a passport. If you are traveling with a birth certificate and drivers license, do so at your own risk.

You were not convicted, so, you would not be disallowed because of the arrest. There may be other reasons, but, not that.

They don't want you, stay home.

The charge being dropped and expunged means that the arrest won't prevent your entry to Canada because effectively it "never happened". That doesn't mean that there might not be other reasons why you wouldn't be admitted.

If expunged I don't think it shows up.

Canada Immigration Officers will decide when you try to cross.
Crossing into Canada is more than just not having a criminal record.
