We all have mistakes in our pasts that we wish hadn’t happened. Most of the time, though, those mistakes are relatively minor and don’t have the authorities involved. In some cases, though, the police and courts do become involved even in minor incidences.
Those mistakes can cost you throughout the rest of your life – if you let them. You may find yourself struggling to find work or housing on account of the background checks that are routine for many employers and landlords. You could be nervous about crossing the border into the United States or trying to enter another foreign country. Worst of all, you might have your record come back to haunt you during divorce proceedings, potentially even costing you the right to visit your children.
Criminal pardons and record suspensions provide many people in Winnipeg MB who have criminal records the chance for a fresh start.

Many, though – far more than most people realize – can have their records sealed or expunged once they’ve paid their debts to society.
