CRIMINAL DEFENCE LAW

 

What Is a Criminal Record?

Your record is created when you have been found guilty of committing any criminal offence under laws such as the Criminal Code and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act.Apply for a record suspension and waiver as soon as possible.

A criminal record is a permanent entry in a register administered by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP).

Your criminal record lists your identity, charges against you, convictions, fingerprints, DNA,  and more. It is accessible by police, border guards and others.

Your criminal record is kept till you would be 150 years old, regardless of whether you are dead or alive.

BEWARE OF HIRING A COMPANY TO DO YOUR RECORD SUSPENSION OR WAIVER APPLICATION FOR YOU.

Those companies charge hundreds of dollars to fill in the forms. You still have to run around, get finger prints, collect copies of court documents and other records. By the time you do all that you may as well fill in the forms yourself and mail them in.

(a) is evidence of the fact that

(i) the Board, after making inquiries, was satisfied that the applicant was of good conduct, and

(ii) the conviction in respect of which the record suspension is ordered should no longer reflect adversely on the applicant’s character; and

(b) unless the record suspension is subsequently revoked or ceases to have effect,
