Hello,

Thank you for your question.

As a Canadian national, you are exempt from the need for a visa in order to travel to France and other EU countries. This exemption allows you to stay up to 3 months in France and other EU countries that apply the Schengen rules on common visas.

As a non-EU national, you can only be denied entry to France if you represent a threat to public order, public security or public health.

Since your conviction was of a non-violent nature and you have served your sentence, the French authorities would not have ground to consider you as a threat.

There is therefore no need for you to apply for a special visa.

I hope this answers your question.
