MDC Paralegal can assist individuals with a criminal record in obtaining a pardon (now known as record suspension). A record suspension allows people who were convicted of a criminal offence, but have completed their sentence and demonstrated they are law-abiding citizens, to have their criminal record kept separate and apart from other criminal records.

We will immediately take steps to start the process and begin to guide you through the pardon application process and remove past criminal offences from public record.

How We Can Help

  • Advise and assist you in acquiring the required documentation
  • Assist in completing all required government forms
  • Assure all documents (police and court records) have been received
  • Ensure your application is complete and submitted promptly
  • Handle all government inquiries and correspondence on your behalf
  • Submit an application on your behalf to Canadian National Parole Board

About Criminal Pardons (Record Suspension)

Pardons are issued by the National Parole Board of Canada. This means that any search of the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) will not show that you had a criminal record, or that you were issued a pardon.

Getting a pardon removes obstacles affecting your employment, ability to be bonded, Canadian immigration, child custody, apartment rental, volunteer work, educational opportunities, and most importantly, peace of mind.
