Pardon in Canada
Federal Pardon Waiver Services
Pardon, Record Suspension, Pardons Canada,
A pardon is in affect the governments’ way of recognizing that an individual with a criminal record in Canada has been rehabilitated and therefore deserves a second chance without the black mark of a past indiscretion hindering their ability at having a normal and productive life. Any individual, regardless of residency or citizenship status, who has been convicted of a crime in a Canadian court of law, can apply to have their records permanently sealed.
A pardon keeps a judicial record of a conviction separate and apart from other criminal records, and gives law abiding citizens an opportunity to reintegrate into Canadian society.
The CRA removes all information about the conviction for which an individual received the pardon from the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). Federal agencies cannot give out information about the conviction without approval from the Minister of Public Safety Canada.
