We help hundreds of Canadians each week to obtain a Canada Pardon for various criminal records, among the most common is DUI.
Many people don’t realize that having a criminal record can seriously impede the ability to get work. Nowadays, most employers are doing criminal background checks before hiring for a position. Unless a pardon has been granted, the employer will see the criminal record and likely dismiss your employment application.
Here is a letter we received from a person we recently helped to obtain a Canada Pardon for a DUI, explaining the difficulty of getting work:
“Having a DUI became a big problem when, at 5 month of sobriety, I decided to make a life changing move by returning to college to further my education in the Health care field.”
“I completed my first program as a PSW (personal support worker) and had to divulge that I had a criminal record to my teacher who headed the placement portion of the course. She finally had to act as a guarantor on my behalf in order for me to complete my placement.”
“Since I did so well and graduated with a 4.0 average, and because I would not have been able to obtain a position in my filed with a criminal record, I embarked on a 2 yr Social service Worker program and I will graduate in August of this year.”
“My Pardon comes just in time for my 360 hour filed placement in a high end senior citizen home in my area, where after a local police check, I will be employed as an “Activities Coordinator”.”
“I can assure you that as I approach my second year of sobriety, that I will never drink and drive again. Incidentally, I did not get my drivers licence renewed until my alcohol problem was resolved.”
