My work in Toronto these last few weeks has broadened my horizon dramatically. While helping an associate and friend through some holiday time for his staff, it fell to me to look after one of his fingerprinting shops in Toronto.

The first day I saw 12 fingerprint clients and 7 people who needed CPICs. The second day was so busy it simply morphed into the third. The phrase, “Please have a seat in our waiting room and I’ll be with you as soon as I can”, was repeated so many times, I’m sure they found the waiting room, ‘standing room only’.

The third day I was able to use ‘Divide and Conquer’ to move things along at a brisk pace. Those needing a CPIC or background check (based on name and date of birth) were to fill out a form, pay the fee and present two pieces of ID which I would check and photocopy. They left and a call later that day would let them know their CPIC was ready for pickup. Those needing our LiveScan fingerprint service are looked after on a first-come, first-serve basis. This works well and I suspect it is how the regular staff handle fingerprint clients. The faster I get with the LiveScan process, the greater number of clients I see. In this ID office, I don’t seem to run out of clients…I run out of time.

There is a trend I am picking up…More and more police services are releasing old charges in the course of completing background checks. When a person needs a simple background check (a CPIC for work, for example), old charges that resulted in non-conviction dispositions such as withdrawn, acquitted, dismissed, quashed, discharged, stayed or findings of not guilty or not criminally responsible by the court…charges for which one has not been convicted…may be noted on their CPIC by certain police agencies. By reporting your non-convictions, it becomes impossible for you to get a ‘clean’ CPIC for work. This is a problem. While convictions can be addressed by a record suspension through the Parole Board of Canada, charges cannot.

The only way to address these ‘non-convictions’ is to request a purge or document destruction from the pertinent police agency. Most police agencies will remove old charges but be aware, there is no law that says municipal or provincial police must remove old charges. Removing charges or not reporting charges, is at the discretion of the police agency and they all have their own regulations regarding non-convictions.

Impact Pardons Plus has developed a purge process which ensures the relevant police agency will address your concerns about past charges in writing. Let IPP assist you with our IPP Purge Process.
