It is with humility and profound gratitude that I accept this pardon. I feel like a new person because I am able to visit my family in the United States and not have to worry. For so many years this has been a burden on my shoulders. That has now been lifted, thanks to your generosity and help.
Pardons Canada is a non-profit organization that has become the leading authority on Record Suspensions, File Destructions and U.S. Entry Waivers in Calgary. As a matter of fact, we have helped over 200,000 individuals since 1989.
The aftermath of a criminal conviction in Calgary can follow you for years after the sentence has been served. Because of it, you may have trouble getting a job or advancing in your current position, travelling to other countries including the U.S. or renting a home or an apartment. This type of discrimination against someone with a criminal record is entirely legal. However, the same kind of discrimination directed at someone without a criminal record or whose record has been pardoned or suspended represents a human rights violation.
