The Government of Canada has launched a public online consultation on record suspensions (formerly referred to as pardons) under the Criminal Records Act in support of its review of the changes made to the criminal justice system over the past decade.

The information provided through this consultation will help inform the development of options for the reform of the Criminal Records Act and support the successful reintegration of law-abiding Canadians into society.

Until December 7, 2016, Canadians can make their voices heard by participating in the online consultation available on the Public Safety Canada Website.
