If you have been convicted of a criminal offence, you have a criminal record. Your criminal record won’t be removed automatically. You must make an application under the Criminal Records Act of Canada for a Record Suspension (previously known as a Pardon). The Act is meant to help people with past offences who are now rehabilitated.

A Record Suspension (formerly known as a Pardon) is an acknowledgement from the federal government that a person with a criminal conviction(s) has demonstrated good conduct so that the conviction(s) should no longer reflect adversely on the person’s character. Once granted, a record suspension allows individuals to have their criminal record kept separate in the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). As a result, all information pertaining to the conviction(s) will no longer appear in a criminal records search. While a record suspension applies only to records kept with federal departments, most provincial and municipal law enforcement agencies will restrict access to their records once notified that a record suspension has been granted.

The Canadian Human Rights Act forbids discrimination based on a conviction for which an individual has received a record suspension. Once a record suspension has been granted, the individual has no obligation to reveal the details of their conviction(s)
