Key Benefits of Obtaining a Record Suspension

A record suspension is a formal process that removes a person’s criminal record from the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. This means that the record will not appear in background checks used by employers, educational institutions, or other organizations conducting such checks. It's important to note that a record suspension does not erase a criminal record but rather sets it aside, indicating that the individual has been rehabilitated and is no longer considered a risk to society.
