Employment repercussions of having a criminal record

If I get arrested in an anti-logging protest, will I never be able to work as a teacher/engineer/doctor or any other professional organization? (in Canada specifically)

I am told that if you have any kind of criminal record, you will not be able to be hired as a professional of any sort in Canada. I am wondering if this is indeed strictly true; are employers allowed to consider what type of crime it was? being part of an anti-logging road blockade is much different that stealing or murder. Any insights? Thanks MF.
