Pardons & Record Suspension

About Pardons/Suspensions

Though the technical term for a Pardon in Canada has been changed to “Record Suspension”, the effect of attaining a Pardon remains the same. Eligible persons may have their criminal records removed from all searchable databases in Canada.

Getting a Pardon will help you:

  • Get the job you have always wanted.
  • Feel comfortable traveling to another country.
  • Start a family using the adoption process.

What is a pardon?

A pardon is a government decision to allow a person who has been convicted of a crime to be free and absolved of that conviction as if they were never convicted.
