If you have been following my recent articles on how to get your Canadian pardon, you should be ready to prepare and submit your pardon application to the Clemency and Pardons Division of the National Parole Board.

Pardon professionals, such as Express Pardons, have techniques which help them fast-track the application through the National Parole Board review process. However, if you are doing the application on your own, you should focus on just making sure the application is correct and complete.

The following checklist should help you make sure that your application is in proper order and less likely to be rejected by the National Parole Board:

Check that the Pardon Application form is signed by you in original form, and dated by you within the last 12 months.
Check that you have included the original RCMP Identification Services criminal record check (CPIC) and the civil product (4 fingerprint cover), certified with the RCMP seal, and dated within the last 12 months.
Check that you have included an original pardon Court Information form for each and every conviction which was completed within the last 5 years, or which includes a fine or restitution order within the last 15 years. Be sure to check the courts work. Make sure all the dates entered match those on your CPIC criminal record. Check that the court clerk properly certified each document.
Check that you have included a complete Local Police Records Check from each police that had jurisdiction over your areas of residence in the last 5 years. Local Police Checks are only valid for 6 months. If the police check has been dated more than 6 months ago, you must obtain a new one. Be sure to check each Local Police Check for any details that might affect the National Parole Boards review of your pardon application. If you have held a foreign address in the last five years, be sure you have included a foreign police check or letter of good conduct, also dated within the last 6 months.
If relevant, check that you have included a copy of your military conduct sheet, or a letter from your commanding officer in the Canadian Armed Forces. If including a letter from a commanding officer, the letter must de dated no more than 6 months ago. If your military conduct sheet contains criminal equivalent offences, the requirements  apply for obtaining court documents to demonstrate eligibility.
Finally, be sure to include proof of status in Canada if you were not born in Canada. If you are a Canadian citizen, you may include a clear photocopy of your Canadian passport or citizenship card. If you are a landed immigrant or status refugee, you will need to include a copy of valid papers demonstrating your status in Canada.

You are now ready to file your pardon. Prepare the above and make a copy of all the documents for your personal reference. You will need to obtain a money order in the amount of .00, payable to the “Receiver General of Canada”, which you will have to submit with your pardon application to the Board.

When you have a money order, mail your original form application documents with the money order as follows:
