Visitor: I’m contacting you in relation to a file purge/destruction request. I reached out to Halifax Police however they aren’t very responsive. I’m inquiring on your service to assist with file destruction and removal of information from CPIC.
In reference to a case which was started in 2017 and was immediately dropped/dismissed during the trial on 18 Aug 2018. A Peace Bond was issued and expired in 2019.
Obviously this information, while only a non-conviction, makes it difficult to potentially travel to the US or change Jobs.
I previously contacted the Halifax police for the file destruction to which they instructed me to wait until August 22nd 2023.
Now that the waiting period has expired, I would apply though your service to request a purge/destruction of what is in my file including non-conviction information, fingerprints, photograph, charge information and so on.
Please let me know what documentation or files are requested to fully complete the purge through you, Halifax Police and the RCMP.
In terms of timelines, what can we typically expect until we would receive confirmation it is deleted?
Pardons Canada: A file destruction for your assault charge that ended with a peace bond is certainly possible and once granted it will no longer show up on RCMP or police files and you will be safe for work and travel to the US without the fear of being denied entry.
