Criminal Record Purge

What is a Record Purge?

If you have never been convicted of a crime, you cannot receive a Pardon in Canada. So what do you do if a non-conviction record is holding you back from enjoying life? A Record Purge is useful for ridding your past of these non-conviction records.

Each courthouse and police department maintains separate records for everyone that passes through their system. Even if you have never been convicted of a crime, a registered background check can still show non-conviction records. Left alone, these records could impede your ability to find work, adopt a child, or even travel freely across the border.

A Record Purge is never a simple process, but Scotia Pardons has the knowledge, the experience, and the established network in place to clear up the past and brighten your future. If you would like more information, contact us today for a free eligibility assessment. All of your personal information is kept completely confidential, and there is no obligation to continue the process.

Record Purge – What You Can Expect

It Takes Time To Do Things Right:

The process for completing a Record Purge can take 6 months to a full year to complete. Scotia Pardons has built a reputation for success, but we only got to here by taking the time to do our homework. Because Record Purges are done at the local level, it is important to know first where the records are, and then to build your case for having them removed.

Expecting the Unexpected:

A Record Purge is conducted at the local level. This means that Scotia Pardons must treat with each court and police center that you came into contact with. Third party charges for filing or access to information may come up, but Scotia Pardons will keep you aware at all times of your obligations during this process.

The Upside:

  • If you received an Absolute Discharge on or after the date of July 24, 1992, your record with the RCMP will be automatically purged from the system 1 year after the date of your sentence.
  • If you received a Conditional Discharge on or after the date of July 24, 1992, your record with the RCMP will be automatically purged from the system 3 years after the date of your sentence.
  • Of course, if your records with the RCMP or your local police originated before July 24, 1992, then Scotia Pardons is here to assist you in effectively purging them.
