Perhaps one of the most common criminal charges in Canada is assault. Domestic assault is most common but other assault charges include assault causing bodily harm, assault with a weapon, uttering death threats.
Oftentimes, people are charged with assault and the charges are later withdrawn, dismissed, stayed in court or absolute or conditional discharge and peace bond. Regardless, once fingerprints are in the system, your criminal charge is available for public record and can negatively impact your ability to get a job or travel to the US.
A Canada Pardon is required if you have been convicted of an assault charge in order to remove your criminal record from public record so that you will be safe for work and travel.
We are living in a stressful society so its easy to “lose it” on someone and before you know it you have been charged with assault. At Pardons Canada we deal with many agencies that help people with their anger issues so that they don’t get into trouble again.
One blog that is excellent at dealing with anger management is called “Why so Angry” written by Nigel Turner, a veteran in the anger management field.
