List of Organizations where Membership can Cause Admissibility Issues

Being a member of certain organizations can result in a person being inadmissible to Canada.  In going through internal CIC documents I obtained through an Access to Information and Privacy Act request, I came across a list prepared by the Canadian Embassy in Paris.  It lists every court case (to 2006) involving people who were declared inadmissible to Canada for membership in an organization.  Although the list is obviously dated, individuals who were members in any of the groups which appear below should contact a representative before submitting applications or making refugee claims.
