In these hard economic times its difficult enough to find a good job without a criminal record, so having a criminal record makes it nearly impossible to compete for good jobs.
Many people call us to help them remove their old criminal records with a Canada Pardon, so that they can change jobs or get better work. Even if the charges have been stayed, withdrawn, dismissed or acquitted, it will show up in a criminal abstract when employers run criminal background checks.
Here is a letter we recently received from a person we helped to remove a domestic assault charge with a Canada Pardon:
“Having a criminal record is a very srious problem, especially in these hard economic times.”
“Its like having a skeleton in the closed. Speaking for myself it was like a nightmare, trying to get a job with a good company was practically impossible.”
“That unavoidable question would always come up, “do you have a criminal record to which you have not received a pardon?”. You know that the employer can find out, so you must tell the truth, and then you don’t hear from them again.”
“Having no criminal record can give a person so many new opportunities that before they were totally impossible even to think about. Removing the criminal past, for sure can help a person like myself to have an improved self confidence.”
“Perhaps getting a job where you need to be bonded and today every employer wants an employee to have a clean abstract.”
“Thanks again Pardons Canada for helping me have a clean start. Hopefully this will help me get a good paying job and have peace of mind.”
