Requirements

Criminal Records Act

The Criminal Records Act of Canada (CRA) outlines that an individual must wait 10 years from the completion of their sentence for an indictable offence or five years for a summary offence. A sentence can be a jail term, a period of probation, parole, conditional sentences, or the payment of any fines, surcharges, or restitution. The eligibility wait period will not commence until all elements of the sentence have been satisfied.

Individuals who have been convicted of a sexual offence against a minor or have more than 3 offences prosecuted by indictment each with a prison sentence of 2 or more years, are permanently ineligible for a Record Suspension.
