Among the most common criminal charges in Canada is drunk driving, also known as DUI, DWI, Driving While Ability Impaired, Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample, Care and Control and Blowing over .08). Many people are unaware that once convicted you have a criminal record in Canada.
If you have a criminal record in Canada it is difficult to get employment as most employers are doing criminal background checks. Also, the Americans can refuse you entry to the US if you have a criminal record, no matter how old the charge is or how small its perceived to be.
In order to get this criminal record removed from public record you must apply for a Canada Record Suspension or Pardon. The process is complicated and can take time, but you will get the Record Suspension as long as you have paid the fine for the DUI and stayed out of further trouble for a prescribed period of time.
We help hundreds of people each week to obtain a Canada Record Suspension so that they can continue with their life without the stigma of having a criminal record in Canada.
This is the feedback we received recently from one person we helped to remove a DUI from 2003 in Ontario:
“It is with great pleasure and joy that I am writing this letter. I would first like to thank Canada Record Suspensions for my new found freedom.”
“This letter could not have come at a more perfect time. With all that is happening in my life I truly appreciate the forgiveness you have given me.”
“This Record Suspension helps give me a second chance. I have made regretful mistakes in my past and I am grateful I have been granted the request for Record Suspension.”
“I would like to thank you for taking care of all necessary paperwork on my behalf and allowing me to regain my freedom”
