Tougher Canadian Pardon Laws Lead to Heavier Reliance on Express Pardons

On June 29, 2010, the Canadian government passed tough new legislation that now makes the pardon process much more complicated.  This new law requires individuals with more serious offences to build a case for their pardon application.  It is now up to the individual to convince the National Parole Board that they deserve a pardon, making the application considerably more difficult than before.   Since the new legislation has passed, Express Pardons phone lines have been flooded with calls with questions regarding the changes.
Some of the most Frequently Asked Questions are:

  • When do these changes take place?

Answer: Immediately as of June 29, 2010

  • What are the changes?

Answer: Eligibility times lines have changed for all applicants and those individuals with more serious offences must prove to the National Parole Board that they both need and deserve a pardon.

  • How do I know if these changes affect me?

Answer: Contact Express Pardons at 1-866-416-6772 to find out how these changes will affect you while learning how to get your pardon application underway.

  • Am I still eligible?
