Individuals may be eligible for a record suspension if:

  • They were convicted of a criminal offence
  • They have completed all the requirements of their sentence and probation
  • They have completed the 5 or 10 year waiting period, depending on the nature of their offence

By applying for a record suspension from the Parole Board of Canada (PBC), if you are eligible. When you are awarded a record suspension, all information about the conviction is removed from the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. Following a pardon, federal agencies will be required to seek approval from the Minister of Public Safety Canada before giving out information about your conviction.

Your Canadian pardon eligibility also depends on the type of offence committed. Individuals who have been convicted of the following are not eligible for a record suspension:

  1. A schedule 1 offence-sexual offences involving children
  2. More than 3 offences prosecuted by indictment, with a prison sentence of two or more years

The Canadian government has a rather tedious process for applying for a criminal record suspension. It involves a lot of paperwork, ID requirements, and verification procedures. The process includes:

  • Obtaining local police records
  • Submitting digital fingerprints to obtain your criminal record
  • Obtaining court documents (and military conduct sheets where applicable)
  • Obtaining relevant citizenship documents
  • Completing the application forms

Two pieces of valid government-issued identification are required. The first one is your photo ID. The other one may vary depending on your location, and may include:

  • Driver’s license
  • Passport
  • Permanent resident card
  • Birth certificate
  • Canadian citizenship card
  • Immigration documents
  • Certificate of live birth
  • Military family ID
  • Record of landing for citizenship applicant
  • Nexus card

Here’s a breakdown of the associated costs:

  • Record check: $50 to $75
  • Fingerprinting: $30 to $125
  • Court processing: $40 to $100
  • Parole Board processing: $631
  • US waiver processing: $585
