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.
If you are planning on traveling to the United States for either business or pleasure, your Canadian Criminal Record (CCR) can deem you inadmissible and you can be denied entry. If you have already been denied entry into the U.S. due to your CCR, you MUST obtain a U.S. Entry Waiver before attempting to enter the U.S., otherwise you risk being detained by the U.S. authorities.
An Application for Waiver of Grounds of Inadmissibility is an application for legal entry to the United States made by an individual who is otherwise inadmissible on one or more grounds. The application is filed with U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in advance of the date of intended travel to the United States. It is then reviewed by Homeland Security to ensure that you are not a threat to their society. In addition, they will determine the length of time that your Waiver will be valid (1-5 years).
Employment Many employers conduct local and/or federal criminal record searches before hiring. Discovery of your criminal record will negatively affect your chances to get a job.
The days of simply checking off a box in a job application that reads’ have you ever been convicted of a crime in Canada for which you have not received a Pardon’ are over! Virtually all businesses today run an electronic background search on their prospective employees to ensure that they are hiring dependable, law-abiding people. Many of these companies have a zero-tolerance policy and will not hire you regardless of how innocent you think you were or how silly you feel the circumstances were during your arrest... a conviction is a conviction.

Federal Pardons Waiver Services will collect the necessary documents in order that your military convictions will be included in your application and therefore removed.
It takes an average of 9-18 months for a pardon/record suspension application to be processed and granted. However, to prepare the pardon/record suspension application, many documents must be collected. Acquiring the proper supporting documents from various law enforcement and government agencies takes between 3-10 months. Therefore, it is a good idea to start preparing the application well in advance of your eligibility date. In fact, most people cannot even determine what their eligibility date is until after they have acquired RCMP reports and relevant court documents.
Even if your criminal record has not affected your life yet there is a good chance that someday it will. People want to have their record pardoned/suspended for many reasons. Most people simply want to make sure they are no longer associated with the mistakes they made in the past. Your peace of mind is one important reason to obtain your pardon/record suspension. We strongly recommend that anyone with a criminal record obtain a pardon/record suspension. Our society strongly encourages rehabilitation. Simply put, you are lucky enough to live in a country that allows the pardoning/suspending of criminal records. You should take advantage of that.
The Parole Board of Canada (PBC) has exclusive jurisdiction to grant, refuse to grant or to revoke a pardon/record suspension. The law that governs pardons/record suspensions is known as the Criminal Records Act (CRA). The Criminal Records Act provides for the relief of persons who have been convicted of offences and have subsequently rehabilitated themselves.
If you have been charged with a crime, even if you were found not guilty, or were never convicted, you do have a criminal record. If you have been fingerprinted for your offence, a fingerprint number (FPS#) is assigned to your name and date of birth and will exist until you take steps to have this record cleared. Even if you were not fingerprinted, if you were charged with an offence under the criminal code you may still require a pardon/record suspension (if you were convicted) or a file destruction (if you were not convicted).
A criminal record is a record of criminal activity, regardless of the outcome in court. A criminal record may be held by the arresting police, in the CPIC database maintained by the RCMP in Ottawa, and with the relevant court. Even after several years and, even if it concerns a minor offence, a criminal record does not disappear automatically. A prior criminal record can create obstacles to many important things in life, including travel and employment and can be used to justify a harsher sentence in the event of further offences.
