7 Life Changing Benefits To Getting A Pardon

Obtaining a Canadian Criminal Pardon, also known as a record suspension, provides several potential benefits. Here are 7 reasons why individuals may choose to pursue a pardon:

  1. Employment Opportunities: Having a criminal record can present obstacles when seeking employment. Many employers conduct background checks as part of their hiring process, and a criminal record can impact job prospects. A record suspension can help mitigate this barrier by making the criminal record less visible or accessible during background checks, improving employment opportunities.

    Better Wages: Studies have indicated that individuals with criminal records may experience wage penalties even when they find employment. They may earn lower wages compared to individuals with similar qualifications and job responsibilities who do not have criminal records.
  2. Licensing and Volunteer Opportunities: Certain professional licenses and volunteer positions require background checks. Having a criminal record may hinder the ability to obtain licenses or engage in volunteer activities. A record suspension can remove or reduce this barrier, allowing individuals to pursue their desired careers or engage in volunteer work.
  3. Travel: A criminal record can affect an individual’s ability to travel internationally. Some countries have strict entry requirements and may deny entry to individuals with a criminal history. By obtaining a record suspension, individuals may have an easier time traveling to certain countries that have restrictions based on criminal records.

    Travel to The U.S. With A Criminal Record: While each case is assessed individually, certain criminal convictions, such as crimes involving moral turpitude, drug offenses, or violent crimes, may result in a person being denied entry to the United States. In some cases, individuals with a criminal record may be eligible for a waiver of inadmissibility, such as a U.S. Entry Waiver or a non-immigrant visa waiver, which allows them to enter the United States for a specific purpose or period of time.
  4. Personal and Professional Reputation: A criminal record can carry social stigma and affect personal relationships and professional standing. A record suspension can contribute to rebuilding a positive reputation and enhancing personal and professional relationships.
  5. Licensing and Volunteer Opportunities: Certain professional licenses and volunteer positions require background checks. Having a criminal record may hinder the ability to obtain licenses or engage in volunteer activities. A record suspension can remove or reduce this barrier, allowing individuals to pursue their desired careers or engage in volunteer work.
  6. Education: This dovetails with careers in the fact that faculties such as law, education, and medicine all require licensing that required criminal record checks. In addition to passing admissions to get into a faculty, financial considerations such as loans and financial aid may also be affected.

    Skills and Education Disparities: Individuals with criminal records may face challenges in accessing education and skill-building opportunities during and after their involvement with the criminal justice system. Limited access to educational resources or training programs can impact their ability to acquire specialized skills that often lead to higher-paying jobs.
  7. Peace of Mind: Obtaining a record suspension can provide individuals with a sense of closure and a fresh start. It signifies that they have met the requirements set forth by the legal system and have taken steps to move forward from their past mistakes.
