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.

It’s not uncommon to hear that bad things happen to good people. We also understand that good people sometimes make bad decisions. It can be frustrating when the smallest of mistakes leave a mark on your record. This can then lead into future complications regarding important things like employment and travel. Do not let a past mistake keep you from a brighter future. If you are unsure about whether or not you have a criminal record, we can help you figure it out. However, instead of doing a criminal record check, why not erase it and gain peace of mind? We can even help you get a record suspension, or even remove your criminal record entirely through a pardon.
When we think about the term “criminal record”, it understandably fills us with several negative emotions. More often than not, our feelings get the better of us and many people tend to believe that there is no way of getting their life back on track. It’s important to understand that there are a number of ways that offenses are recorded and, if you are arrested, it does not always mean that you will automatically have a criminal record.
You arrive at a venue or party with every intention of remaining 100% sober, but you are somehow convinced that just one drink won’t hurt. Another common mistake is the idea that a few drinks along with a meal will keep you under the limit. Some even think that pacing themselves will help. However, the fact of the matter is that it’s just not worth the risk. A DUI (driving under the influence) can have immediate and long-term effects. After dealing with things like fines, your license suspension, and similar penalties, you will need to prepare yourself for the following.

In order to move on, you will need to give yourself the best possible chance at a fresh start. A federal pardon can help you do just that.
