Is a DUI or Impaired Driving Charge Considered to be a Criminal Offence? If So, How Can I Get My Criminal Record Removed? 
I am aware that by no means is drinking and driving a good thing but i am unsure as to whether or not it would be considered a criminal offence.
Could someone please offer some clarification?
Also, if it is a criminal offence how do i go about removing this criminal removed?  
Thank you.

Hello RHamilton,
Thank you for taking the time to ask our team your question regarding DUI and criminal records.
If you were convicted of any of these offences, whether it’s a DUI, Driving While Ability Impaired, Care and Control of a Motor Vehicle,
Refusal to Provide a Breath Sample, or Driving over .08, it is considered a criminal offence. 
This criminal offence will stay on your criminal record forever until you obtain a pardon or record suspension. 
You must pay the fine as soon as you can and then you will have to be out of trouble for the prescribed time period.  Its OK to start your pardon or record suspension application early with Pardons Canada as we can gather and prepare the necessary paperwork in advance.
I hope this has helped to answer your question.
Feel free to contact a member of the Pardons Canada team today to learn more about the options available to you.
