In todays video, we’ll discuss destruction of criminal history for Canadian citizens who have non-conviction records. How long you have to wait, based on your situation and why it is important to clear any non-conviction criminal history from your public records. Police services in Canada collect and retain a wide range of information about the people they come in contact with, including records of contact, allegations, withdrawn charges, acquittals, fingerprints, etc.. Even if you were charged, went to court and the charges were later dismissed, all this information may still show up on your background check or US border control check. Watch this short video to understand the difference in non-conviction records and how you can clear those from your record.
