I have a peace bond for a domestic assault.  Do I have a criminal record?
Hi Pardons Canada
I was just wondering if someone could please offer me some help. I don't know if I now have a criminal record or not. I have a peace bond for domestic assault, will this be considered a criminal offence and do i now have a criminal record as a result?
Thank you.

Hi there,
Thank you for taking the time to submit your question to our team.

A peace bond is a better outcome than a conviction for assault as it is not considered a criminal offence.


However, in most cases with peace bonds, it means that you were fingerprinted by the police, went to court and the judge set a certain condition that you stay away from the individual for a certain period of time, usually about one year.


Since your were fingerprinted by the police, your name can be seen on a criminal background check so its important to request a purge or file destruction of the fingerprints.


Once a purge is completed, then your name will no longer show up on a police check or RCMP file (CPIC report).

I hope this has helped to answer your question. Remember to contact our office at anytime to learn more about the options available to you.
