When can a Pardon or a Record Suspension be revoked or cease to have effect?

Region: Ontario Answer # 2188

When can a Pardon or Record Suspension (RS) be revoked?

Generally, a Pardon or an RS may be revoked by the PBC if:

  • the person is subsequently convicted of a summary offence under a federal act or regulation of Canada,
  • the PBC finds that the person is no longer of good conduct,
  • the PBC learns that the applicant knowingly made a false or deceptive statement or relevant information was concealed at the time the application was made.

When does a Pardon or Record Suspension (RS) cease to have effect?

A Pardon or an RS ceases to have effect if a person is subsequently convicted of a hybrid or an indictable offence under a federal act or regulation of Canada, or if the PBC is convinced by new information that the person was not eligible for a Pardon or an RS at the time it was awarded.

In either case, the criminal record will be returned to the RCMP’s active data bank and will once again be disclosed on police records checks.
