People who were once convicted of a criminal offence, but have completed their sentence and have shown that they are a law-abiding citizen may decide to request a record suspension (previously called a pardon).
A record suspension does not erase the fact that a person has been convicted of a crime. However, it keeps your criminal record apart from other criminal records. If granted a record suspension, there is evidence that your convictions(s) should no longer reflect upon your character and your chances of being discriminated against are reduced.
You may request Record Suspension Kit from:
The National Parole Board, Prairies Regional Office
101 - 22nd Street East, 6th Floor
Phone (306) 975-4228 or 1-800-874-2652
You may also visit The Parole Board of Canada for more information and print out the forms yourself.
The kit explains the requirements for getting a record suspension and the documents you must obtain.
