File Destruction Services St. John’s, Newfoundland
Everyone that lives in St. John’s, or any other part of Canada is going to make a mistake at some point in his or her lives. Most mistakes are small, and, perhaps more importantly, valuable, as they can teach people how to improve themselves so they “get it right the next time.”
But some mistakes are so large in scale that they have much broader, long-term consequences beyond an immediate negative result. A run-in with law enforcement for example that leads to an arrest, and perhaps even a trial, can result in an addition to a person’s permanent record. And that addition can stay there, even if there’s no criminal conviction. In these instances, only a file destruction can clear things up.
It’s On Record
Every Canadian citizen has a permanent record, but for the majority of people, there’s not much on it. It does, however, exist, and any citizen can consult the permanent record of another citizen, provided they have a name they want to look up and are willing to pay a fee for the information retrieval.
The permanent record, it is important to note, completely respects a person’s private life. There is only one thing that a permanent record and background check can access, and that is the presence of criminal convictions or criminal charges. In other words, for most people, their permanent record actually has nothing on it. Not even traffic violations are stored there. But even if you don’t have a criminal conviction, if you were put through the criminal process, that is, being arrested, charged, fingerprinted, and even going to a trial and having the case withdrawn, dismissed, peace bond, diversion, stayed, absolute discharge or conditional discharge, or resolving with a not guilty verdict, that complete process remains on your record. And people that conduct a background check can read all about this.
