contractors employment fingerprints for background checks cpic

Contractors…Have you been bidding on government contracts? For some, getting a government contract can mean a chance for big earnings or “making your year”. For others it can mean a stronger company better able to compete in the industry. But to get there, most often everyone working on the contract will require a government background check.

If you are such a contracting company and now find yourself and all your employees in need of fingerprinting, call Impact Pardons Plus (IPP) at 343 333 1778 or Google “Impact Pardons” and we can help your administrative staff sort out ‘95’ letters, PWGSC, CISD, time frames and the ever popular…”Will that be digital or ink prints today?”

Fines revisited...

We have had some comments about an earlier blog about fine payment. No, the fine payment cannot be backdated.

Your sentence must be completed before you can begin the 5 or 10 year waiting period. A completed sentence includes:

a) all fines, surcharges, costs, restitution and compensation orders;

b) sentences of imprisonment, conditional sentences, including parole and statutory release, and;

c) any probation order(s).

Not completing ‘a’ may lead to this series of events:

  • If the fine is not paid, the sentence is not completed.
  • If the sentence is not completed, the 5 or 10 year waiting period cannot start.
  • If the 5 or 10 year waiting period is not completed, a record suspension (rs)
  • cannot be ordered.
  • If the rs cannot be ordered, a clean CPIC cannot be obtained.
  • If one cannot get a clean CPIC, employment is not available.
  • If employment is not available, why leave your present situation?

Cleaning up the past brightens your future.

Should you wish to apply for a record suspension (pardon) for a conviction you received 10, 12, 15 or more years ago, call Impact Pardons Plus (IPP) before you leave your current employment. IPP will pre-qualify you as a record suspension applicant.

Thinking Record Suspension?

Some would have you believe you cannot complete a pardon (now a record suspension) on your own. Not so at Impact Pardons Plus (IPP). You can do it yourself. There is no rule that says you must hire a lawyer or a record suspension company to submit an application to the Parole Board of Canada (PBC).

The reality, however, is people get a pardon much faster and with less stress by hiring a professional. At IPP we have submitted hundreds of pardon and record suspension applications over the last 10 years and the knowledge and expertise gained by doing so, means your application will be submitted error free. That’s important to know because even a minor mistake could set you back many months and lead to increased costs.

Of the 19,526 record suspension applications received by the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) in 2012-2013, 41% (7,990) were returned due to missing documents, incorrect or missing fee or were ineligible (applied too early). The IPP SDRS program will direct you around such pitfalls.

IPP is professional and focused. Looking after record suspension applications is what we do everyday. IPP service is second to none. Google Impact Pardons to get the right information right when you need it. Call or email if you have questions.

Collecting Court Records

A critical step in preparing a record suspension application for submission to the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) involves the collection of court records. Don’t confuse court records with criminal records; certified criminal records are obtained by digital submission of fingerprints to the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) national repository of fingerprints and criminal record information in Ottawa. Court records are retrieved after a verbal or written request is made directly to the court in which your case was heard.

Should your court no longer have your records (the retention schedules for such documents varies from court to court and province to province) an affidavit indicating all fines, surcharges and costs have been satisfied can be signed, dated and included with the submission along with an original letter from the court explaining they no longer have records “…due to our retention schedule.” Often times the letter will also include a statement indicating there are no outstanding fines.

Without court records there is no way of knowing if the charge was a summary conviction or an indictable offence which will cause the PBC to assume the offence was indictable which triggers the 10 year waiting period. That would not be a problem for someone who is 15 or 20 years removed from the end of their sentence. Someone who is 7 years removed from the end of their sentence and finds there are no existing court records, would have to wait a further 3 years before applying for a record suspension. Because of this anomaly in the system, Impact Pardons Plus (IPP) strongly advises everyone to get -and keep safe- a copy of their court records within a month or two of being sentenced. That way you have them when you need them.

A word or two about fines… Judges often hand down fines as part of the sentence. When paying the fine make sure it is paid in full. Sometimes a fine includes a Victim Surcharge Fee (VSF) of 10% or court costs. Make sure the court clerk includes everything and get a receipt for your payment(s). Pay it off sooner rather than later and be aware that courts do not send bills or invoices for fines not paid. Nor do they hire collection agencies. It is very important that you ensure your fines, surcharges, costs, restitution and compensation orders have all been satisfied because your 5 or 10 year waiting period begins after all parts of your sentence have been settled.

IPP is sorry to write that it has happened more than a few times a client has had to be told their sentence has not yet been completed due to outstanding fines. Most say they forgot about paying as, “…they moved away” or, “…never received a bill”. Most say they will pay it, “…right now”, but paying today only means their sentence is complete. Once the fine is paid, then the 5 or 10 year waiting period begins.

In real world terms, a sentence of 6 months’ probation and a $200 fine for a summary offence handed down in June, 2004, means a record suspension (formally pardon) cannot be started before March, 2020 if the fine is paid today. What a terrible shock and disappointment it is for someone to hear that when they were expecting to put everything behind them by mid 2016.

If you know someone who has a criminal record, let them know they can type Impact Pardons into Google which could lead them to, “… a better tomorrow, today.”

Let me know what you think.
