Record Suspensions

A Record Suspension (pardon) is an order that keeps a person’s criminal record of convictions separate from other criminal records. This means that a person’s convictions will not be revealed on criminal record checks. It does not erase a criminal record.

Record Suspensions allow people who have made positive life changes to be freed from many of the negative impacts of having a criminal record.
