If you visited a particular country and tried to compare their law and the law you have in your country, you would realize there are some discrepancies here and there in terms of law nature and application. There is no problem if you knew what certain laws in certain countries operate especially the laws from the countries you visit most. When you see some people facing some serious challenges in courts, it happens because the victim never knew anything about that law or they knew it but decided to defy it. One of the countries you need to learn more about their laws in Canada.
Once you have committed a crime in Canada, it is good to know what you need to know so that you can get a pardon through the Canadian law. Anyone could find themselves being a convict of a crime whether major or minor in a country like Canada, but the most important thing to do is getting a pardon as quickly as you can. The first thing to do when you want to be pardoned for the alleged crime is convincing the Canadian Parole Board beyond doubt that you have a good track record as a citizen of his country.
Although you may have wanted that pardon granted to you immediately, there is an order that your criminal record be checked first to see if there would be any of the criminal offenses you ever did before. You will realize that most employers in Canada don’t ask the job applicants whether they have any criminal record with them. Many of the Canadian employers you will come across will only show interest in knowing whether you were a convict who was denied a pardon. Only a few people say the truth in this matter now that most employers don’t analyze or get evidence over a past conviction.
In most cases, you are expected to first serve the given sentence before you apply to be pardoned. What you need to ensure you do is having your fines paid and any of the parole as well as any probation fully served. Once you are through with the pardon application process, the next thing you do is have a waiting period based on what the Canadian law requires.
It is important to know that the more serious your crime is the lengthier the waiting window would be.The waiting period is usually three years for the crimes that are less serious. Note that the waiting period would be extended to about five years if the crimes you committed are serious ones such as sexual assault and murder.
