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

Region: Ontario Answer Number: 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.

To erase your criminal record, call toll-free 1-800-874-2652 or learn more at Parole Board of Canada. It’s easier than you think.

If you have been charged with a criminal offence, refer to our criminal law section.
