Your Criminal Record

If you have been convicted of a crime and have not received a discharge, you will have a criminal record. Criminal records are not made public, but police, prosecutors, customs officers and other officials can see them.

Criminal Record

Criminal records may include information about:

  • Outstanding charges
  • Criminal charges that were removed
  • Conditions of a community sentence
  • Record suspensions
  • Releases from custody

Court Records

Court Records are public and not the same as your criminal record. Visit The Court Records (Adult Accused) to learn more.

Youth Records

The Youth Criminal Justice Act protects the privacy of young people (12 to 17) charged with criminal offences by ensuring information related to charges is not given out to the general public. Visit Youth Records for more information.
