Apply to clear a criminal record (i.e. “record suspension”)


Did you know that a criminal record doesn't necessarily have to follow you for life in Canada?

Our lawyers can help you apply for a "record suspension", but you might be more familiar with the term "pardon", which is what these were called in the past.


We charge a flat fee of $1,000+HST for this service, which includes the following government fees:

  • $50 application fee to the Parole Board of Canada
  • $90 fee for a local criminal record check for each police service you've lived in the last 5 years
  • $85 fee for fingerprinting
  • Obtain records from each courthouse where a conviction was registered

In order to speak with one of our lawyers about this service, you will be charged a consultation fee to confirm the booking. If you proceed with the service after the consultation, then your consultation fee will be credited towards the cost of your services. On the other hand, if you do not proceed or we decline to accept your case, then the consultation fee is non-refundable.
