Most people who call us need their Pardon done FAST.
They are usually calling because they cannot get a job with a criminal record or they cannot get a job promotion or they are concerned about being safe to travel to the US. In most cases, a criminal background check is showing an old criminal record and the person requires it removed as fast as possible.
The same hold true if the criminal charges have been stayed, withdrawn, dismissed, conditional or absolute discharge, the fingerprints are still in the system and can be seen on a criminal background checks.
We have been helping Canadians remove criminal records with a Canada Pardon and obtain US Entry Waivers for the past 20 years so we have the best systems and expertise in place to get the process done as fast as possible.
Having said that, in terms of timing, every file is different and depends on the courts, police, number of criminal charges, how quickly fingerprints are done, RCMP file turnaround and other factors as well. Therefore, it is impossible to provide an exact estimate of when the Pardon will be granted.
Regardless, we get the job done and help thousands of Canadians each year.
Here is a thank you letter from a client we recently helped to get a Canada Pardon that took 8 months:
“It is my great pleasure to send this note of appreciation to your staff for all their dilligent work on my behalf.”
“Your efficiency in this matter ensured that I received my Pardon within eight (8) months of my first contact with your office.”
“This was well beyond my expectations and well within any time frame that I could research on the internet.”
“It is a great relief to know that any future border crossing should go a lot more smoothly now. I had never had a problem before but it was stressful just wondering when the time would come that I would be turned back. That should no longer be an issue because of your help.”
“I commend your staff on their speed and knowledge in these matters of removing criminal records and hope that you continue to serve in this capacity for a long time to come.”
