A DUI in Ontario and throughout Canada is considered a criminal offence. It is also referred to as “Impaired Driving”, “Driving While Impaired”, and “Over .08 Milligrams”. “Refusing to provide a breath sample” is considered the same as a DUI and carries a criminal record.
If you are convicted of a DUI then you need a Canada Pardon to remove the criminal record from public record so that you may continue your life without the fear of your criminal record showing up at the US Border or with future employers.
Under the new legislation introduced in Bill C10, The word “pardon” will be replaced by “record suspension” but it will have the same affect as the previous term.
Here is a thank you letter we recently recieved from a person we helped to obtain a Canada Pardon for a DUI:
“On Jan 2006, appx. 3 hrs away from my 19th birthday I was charged criminally for impaired driving. I knew what I was doing that night and I also knew it was wrong and as a consequence I was pulled over by the OPP and charged.”
“Going through the whole process of the criminal justice system was very hard on my self and on my family not only mentally but financially. I had to declare a criminal offence when applying for work made me feel shameful and was heart breaking.”
“During job interviews, the employer was already judging me despite how great my resume was and my great personality. This whole experience has been very humbling, it taught me to never take life for granted and always make the right choices in whatever I do.”
“Thanks to Pardons Canada I can now live my life with my head held high without any shame. Now with my second chance I’m going to put all this behind me and move forward in my life at the same time never forget how much this whole experience has shaped my life.”
