Remove Criminal Record - Assault

Edited by Admin

Visitor:  I recently went to get a criminal record check for a volunteer position. I found out that I have suspended assault charges on my file from three years ago (2016). I punched a neighbour that had been harassing me for nearly 20 years. I felt awful and put myself in counselling. I work for the school board and have had a clean record of employment. My employer does criminal record checks every 5 years. Will this put my job in jeopardy when they next criminal record check occurs? What should I do?


Pardons Canada:  Most employers in Canada are doing criminal background checks and also for volunteering and coaching.  You assault charges will definitely show up on a criminal background check even if your charges were dismissed, stayed, or conditional or absolute discharged, 


Pardons Canada:  It’s important to get a file destruction to remove your prints from the police and RCMP database so that in the future you will be safe for work and volunteering and coaching.  However, since this is a crime of moral turpitude, your assault charge may show up even after the file destruction on a vulnerable sector check.  This vulnerable sector check is meant to protect vulnerable people like children and seniors.  Once your file destruction is completed, you may make a personal request to the police to remove your name from the vulnerable sector which they may or may not agree to.  At Pardons Canada we help thousands of people each year to remove old criminal records or fingerprints so that they are safe for work and travel.  Call us at 1877-929-6011 x1
