Please Join us for a Public Legal Education Information Session
Record Suspensions (Pardons)
November 25, 2013 at 1:00 – 3:00 pm
As a result of Bill C-10, the term “pardon” has been replaced with “record suspension” as of March 13, 2012. A record suspension allows people who were convicted of a criminal offense, but have completed their sentence and demonstrated they are law-abiding citizens for a prescribed number of years, to have their criminal record kept separate and apart from other criminal records. For information on applying for a record suspension, please join us for Public Legal Education Information Session and learn about the changes (as of June, 2010) to the record suspensions process and how to apply for a record suspension through the Parole Board of Canada.
