We understand the waiting periods are extensive and can be frustrating.
Timelines with the PBC vary from application to application. With the number of legislation changes over the past 2 years, we have seen significant delays with applications that were submitted prior to March 2012. We understand the PBC is aware of this and making every effort to correct this with newly trained Pardon officers.

At Pardons Canada, we have tracking systems in place to ensure we follow-up at a reasonable time after receiving the initial PBC acknowledgement letter. This letter indicates that the PBC has accepted your application for consideration of approval.
Once the document with the final decision arrives at our office, rest assured it will be forwarded to you immediately.
