In the Ontario Court of Appeal today, a ruling was upheld allowing police to provide information to the public about criminal charges that were dismissed, withdrawn or acquitted. This has huge negative consequences for people in this situation who are trying to get a job, promotion or travel to the US.
The truth is that an employer when faced with two or more equally qualified job applicants will not hire the person who was once charged with a crime, even if they are entirely innocent.
Unfortunately, many people do not know that their withdrawn criminal charges can be removed from the system so that they will not be available for public record.
At Pardons Canada, we help hundreds of people with file destructions so that they will be safe to get a job without the worry of an employer seeing the criminal charges.
