Every day we receive letters of appreciation from people we have helped to get a Canada Pardon which effectively removes criminal records from public record. Even if the criminal charge has been stayed, dismissed, withdrawn, acquitted, absolute or conditional discharge, a file destruction is necessary to remove these charges from public record.
Often the label of being a “criminal” is a heavy burden to carry and the relief of getting a Pardon for a past mistake is incredible.
Here is a letter we recently received from a person we helped to get a Canada Pardon:
“Today its very easy to say how much we want to punish convicted criminals. Its easy to lose sight of what a criminal really is.”
“People who have been fingerprinted and photographed after an arrest are classified as criminals! Those same people don’t even have to be convicted.”
“The criminal justice system still makes mistakes and is far from perfect and not everybody who has a criminal record is evil let alone criminal.”
“The first thing to do if you find yourself in such a situation is to denounce yourself as a criminal when you know you are not, and take the necessary steps to clear your name.”
“Even when the system fails, we are very lucky to live in a country that has a Pardons system. Pardons Canada helps you navigate through the process of clearing your name and won’t pass judgement.”
