It seems that every where you turn to apply for work, a criminal record check is required.
Now there is a proposal to run criminal record checks on existing employees, in this case its teachers.
The Liberal Government in BC last year passed a law that requires teachers to have a criminal check done every five years. Originally, the only time a criminal check was done was at the time of employment. Now they must undergo a criminal check every five years.
This trend will continue to other employment arenas so its become even more important to obtain a Canada Pardon if you have an old criminal record.
Once a Pardon is granted, the charges will be removed from CPIC, and cannot be seen publicly. This will save you a lot of embarassment and the possibility of losing your job.
