Pardon Benefits

  • A Canadian pardon will seal all manner of criminal convictions in Canada.
  • A pardon will improve employment options and bondability.
  • Allows travel to foreign countries.

Once a Canadian criminal pardon is granted, no police agency, federal authority, or employer can access your criminal record.

Processing Time for a Pardon

A Canadian pardon may take an average of 10 – 16 months to process. Once a record suspension is granted, the Parole Board of Canada will contact the courts, federal and local police departments to remove this information from their files.

Winnipeg’s Pardon Services is a RCMP accredited fingerprint  for pardon applications.

A Canadian Pardon Is Not Recognized By The United States.

A US entry waiver may still be required even though a pardon has been granted. A passport alone will not ensure safe border crossing if you have a criminal record.

Canadian Pardon Waiting Period

A period of time must be served before applying for a pardon. After the sentence is completed, the waiting period begins. A summary conviction requires a 5 year wait while an indictable conviction requires a 10 year wait. Should a fine be imposed as part of the sentence, the waiting period begins at the time the fine was paid in full. An absolute or conditional discharge given before 1992 will not be removed from your federal record. However, this can be purged by complying with the appropriate procedures.
