It appears that yet another pardon service provider has closed it’s doors. In business since about 2006 Canadian Pardon Services could usually be found at www.canadianpardons.ca. But that url now directs to www.recordsuspensions.org. And their phone number is also no longer in service. This is the company that operated at the following location:
206 Spadina Avenue
Toronto, ON M5T 2C2
The website redirect is hardly surprising since I thought they would shut down the old website eventually. But the toll free line being out of commission is definitely strange. After all, you can’t run a business without a phone (at least most can’t).
I also spoke to one of their former clients who had been to their walk in centre and he informed me that the office has been emptied. So as much as I don’t need to say “I told you so” in a situation like this I think it is important that people do their research. In other words, when you’re choosing a pardon service – or any service for that matter – make sure the company you’re hiring is reputable.
As an example of where to start simply see the reviews of Canadian Pardon Services below. A bit or research online could have saved a lot of people a lot of trouble.

Sadly all of this will mean that a lot of people who put their faith in Canadian Pardon Services will be out of luck. If you happen to be one of those people and you would like to try to get this done properly I am offering a $75 discount on our services (proof of payment with CPS required).
I suppose it is also remotely possible that Canadian Pardon Services is simply restructuring. If so I suggest someone from that company get in touch and let me know what is going on so that I can take this post down. Otherwise I suggest they do the right thing and give people their money back. If that’s not possible at least hand over their documentation, if any exists.
And once again, please be careful who you hire. And if you have any need of assistance with this problem or any other that relates to the pardons, waivers, fingerprinting or criminal records please feel free to give me a call. I’m not going anywhere.
