Assistance with Record Suspensions (Pardons) and Waivers
Provided by: Canadian Human Rights International Organization (CHRIO)
Helps individuals with a criminal record apply for a record suspension (formerly called a pardon). Visit the website for more information on the application process.
CHRIO can also assist people with waivers. Individuals can legally enter the United States by obtaining a United States Entry Waiver prepared by CHRIO. Eligibility for an Entry Waiver depends on the seriousness of the conviction(s) and the amount of time that has passed since the charge. Visit the website for more information.
To be eligible for a Pardon, individuals must wait 5 (summary offence) or 10 years (indictable offence) from the time the sentence was completed. If there were any fines or surcharges related to the conviction(s), they must be paid before the waiting period begins.
Visit the the website for details.
The processing fee for preparing a pardon application is determined on a case by case basis. Contact for details.
