Those who have visited several countries know that the laws differ in many ways and even the way they are applied in those countries is not the same.This means that it is important to know several laws from different countries especially if you are the kind of a person who keeps traveling a lot. 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.
Nobody would like to get a long jail term over some minor mistakes they would have avoided if they begged for a pardon as the Canadian law stipulates. 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.All you may need to do is to prove to the Canadian Parole Board that you have led a good citizen life for the period you have been there.
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. The only thing to do before applying for a pardon is ensuring you serve the probation or even the parole you are sentenced to or that you are through in paying the required fines. After you have applied for a pardon, you need to wait for a period of time as the Canadian law stipulates.
One of the things that would determine for how long you would have to wait is the seriousness of the crime you are said to have committed. Those who are alleged to have committed summary offenses or lesser crimes have their waiting period of about three years.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.
