A Few Key Information As Regards Getting Criminal Pardon in Canada

The National Parole Board of Canada (NPBC, for pardon Canada) allows persons who have been found guilty of a crime to eradicate their criminal documentation from federal databases. This process is called a pardon. It ‘hides’ an individual’s criminal record, and is an acceptance from the NPBC that a person has been rehabilitated and is leading a crime-free lifestyle.

There are various benefits associated with acquiring a criminal pardon. The clear benefits include: marketability in the labor force; security from discrimination that is normally associated with applying for a job; and the ability to engage in activities that previously restricted an individual as a consequence of their criminal record (e.g. volunteering, education, child custody, adopting, and so on). Other benefits include removal of shame, an improvement in poise, and the composure that you are no longer a captive to your past.

Here are some important facts regarding criminal records and pardons: criminal documentation checks are usual practice by employers. Countless employers have inequitable hiring procedures with regards to individuals who have criminal files; anyone sentenced of a crime has a criminal record; a formal appeal must be made according to the Criminal Records Act of Canada to have a record eradicated from the federal database; Once a pardon is approved, the criminal file is ‘concealed’ from the public. Employers will be unacquainted of a criminal record when consulting federal databases.

The National Parole Board of Canada compels individuals to have fulfilled certain conditions before submission of a request. The first prerequisite is that an individual has completed their prison term(s), and the second condition is that the suitable waiting period has been observed following completion of the sentence(s). Regarding the first requirement, prison term completion, here are the requisites which should be met: penalties, costs, restitution and reparation orders, and surcharges have been paid; the person has served their time as outlined in their verdict; and the party has fulfilled the probation order well. For the second condition, waiting period after prison term completion, in accordance with the Canadian Criminal Code and supplementary federal statutes, summary guilty verdicts necessitate a 3 year waiting period while indictable guilty verdicts require a 5 year waiting stage.

If you think you are not qualified, contact Canadian Criminal Pardon Services (CCPS, Toronto pardon).

If your file is brought together early, they will be able to submit it the minute you are eligible.
