Default Misdemeanor

Hi, I'm originally from the Middle East, and I have been to the US in a student visa to conduct my PhD, after that I was planning to move to Canada looking for a job and then final settlement.

Since 5 months ago, while I was in the US, I got convicted for a misdemeanor so I went to the jail(4 days in Jail- but I spent 2 days according to the US law), later on I started to find out the major consequences of what I did and its sub-sequences on my plans of immigration, I know that everything now started to be more complicated.

So my questions are; Am I still legible to apply for the citizenship? If not, is there any solution? Also if I got a job offer (University professor), Do you think this criminal offense will pop up on my background check although that was in US not Canada (I heard that US and Canada has the same Criminal check network)?

I really appreciate your help !!

Yes it will. To immigrate to Canada you need a certificate from the police that you were not convicted.... It doesn't matter that you were convicted in US.
