When a Record Suspension is ordered, what happens to the non-convictions?

Region: Ontario Answer # 2176

If someone has both convictions and non-convictions on the criminal record, the non-convictions will be sealed together with the convictions once a Record Suspension is ordered. No separate application is necessary.

The non-convictions, however, can impact whether the individual’s application will be successful. The Parole Board of Canada (PBC) will look at the nature of the non-convictions and the date when they occurred. If the non-convictions occurred subsequent to the last conviction, the PBC might decide that the individual is not of good behaviour and may go on to deny the application.
