Record Suspension Services in Vancouver
Your past criminal record can get in the way of doing the things you want to do. It can make travel to the U.S. and other international destinations difficult or impossible, prevent you from getting Canadian citizenship or permanent resident status, and keep you from getting a job or even an apartment.
The Criminal Records Act provides an opportunity to free a person who has satisfied the terms of their sentence and subsequently shown that they have rehabilitated themselves from the disadvantages of having a criminal record.
Depending upon the charge, an individual will need to wait a period ranging from 5 to 10 years after the sentence imposed by the court has been satisfied. If the person has not been charged with another offence during that time, they may be eligible for a Record Suspension. Those with a sexual conviction against a minor or those who have had more than three indictable convictions each with jail time of two years or more are not eligible to receive a Record Suspension.
