Pardons for Criminal Code Convictions
**Notice of Changes to the Pardon’s Program under Bill C-10
(Safe Streets and Communities Act)**
Effective March 13, 2012
- The term “pardon” is replaced with the term “record suspension”
- The waiting period for a record suspension has increased (see below for applicable waiting periods)
- Individuals convicted of certain offences, and those who have been convicted of more than three indictable offences, each with a sentence of two or more years, are now ineligible for a record suspension
Once you have been convicted of a criminal offence, the record of that will stay with you for the rest of your life. Having a criminal record can affect your ability to get a job or cross the border for business or travel.
Have you been convicted of a criminal offence? Unable to get a job because of something that happened years ago?
You may be eligible to apply for a record suspension through the National Parole Board of Canada. Call X-Copper for a free consultation to discuss your situation and the possibility of applying for a record suspension. A criminal record will stay with you for the rest of your life unless you are granted a record suspension.
You can apply for a record suspension provided you have completed your sentence and a required period of time has passed since the completion of all sentences.
- All fines, restitution, compensation order, probation and/or parole, imprisonment sentences, etc. have been completed; and you have waited
- 5 years - Summary Conviction
- 10 years - Indictable Conviction
