With few exceptions, if you have ever been charged or convicted of a criminal offence in Canada, and have not received a Canadian Pardon (“Record Suspension”), you have a publicly visible Criminal Record. This means that your past encounters with the law are accessible to anyone who conducts a background check, including potential employers, landlords, and immigration authorities. Whether it was a minor misdemeanor or a more serious offence, the details of your criminal history may be affecting various aspects of your life without your knowledge.

How Might My Criminal
Record Affect Me?

The repercussions of a criminal record can be far-reaching, encompassing: employment, ability to be bonded, traveling to the United States, volunteering, attending school programs, renting housing, adoption and more. Canada is one of the few countries in the world that offers the opportunity to obtain a Pardon and have a second chance at your record. Thus, there truly is no excuse for keeping your criminal record in Canada.

Can I Clear My Criminal Record?

Assuming you meet the government of Canada’s eligibility requirements, as per the Criminal Records Act (CRA) of Canada (the criminal law which outlines the Canadian Pardon process, and much more), you can absolutely clear your criminal record from public visibility forever!

Actually, the correct terminology is that you will “seal” your criminal record from public visibility via the process of obtaining a Canadian Pardon (since 2012, formally known as a “Record Suspension”). Pardons in Canada are granted by the government to indicate that your criminal record has been separated from publicly visible criminal charges in the national criminal record database. When you receive a Pardon, no one can view your criminal record unless they get written permission from you or the Public Safety Minister of Canada. In essence, A Pardon gives you a fresh start on your criminal record.

Why Clearing Your Criminal Record Matters

Having a clean criminal record is vital for unlocking a world of opportunities. When you clear your record, you remove barriers that may hinder your progress in life. A pardon can significantly improve your chances of landing your dream job, as many employers conduct background checks. Additionally, it can enhance your eligibility for better housing options and open doors to educational pursuits. With a clear criminal record, you can also travel more freely and secure visas for various countries. At Pardon Applications, we understand the profound impact a cleared record can have on your life.
