  • Record of Suspension

A criminal record creates barriers in rehabilitating into the community. With a criminal record you may find it difficult to secure employment, become a volunteer and even travel out of the country. A Record of Suspension is an option to work towards eliminating those barriers to become an active citizen in your community and put the past behind you. To learn more about the effects of a criminal record and the application process please visit the Parole Board of Canada website.
