Record Suspension Services in Montreal
Montreal can be a generous and gracious city, full of chances for career and personal growth. But it can also be a town with a lot of closed doors, even for people willing to work hard and put in the time. A criminal conviction on your permanent record can be one of the biggest obstacles to living your life the way you deserve, but this can be taken care of with a record suspension
What Does A Record Suspension Do?
Once you have been arrested, charged and convicted of a crime, that criminal conviction appears on your permanent record. The information is then stored on the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. It is 100% legal for anyone to conduct a background check on another individual to check for the presence of a criminal record in the CPIC. All they have to do is have basic information, such as a person’s name, and be willing to pay the fee for a background check. That’s all there is to it.
A record suspension, however, formerly known as a pardon, can purge the presence of this criminal conviction from the CPIC database. That means that any standard background check will come up “clear” and show no convictions or evidence of wrongdoing. There are a lot of good reasons that you’ll want to do this.
