Time Frames for a Canadian Pardon
After a few years of very fast processing times for pardons applications (fast being a relative term of course) we have had to change our time frames. Pardons were being processed as quickly as 2 months for some expedited applications and 8 months for standard applications. However, due to the recent legislative debates over pardons and the subsequent restructuring at the Parole Board pardon processing has slowed down a bit. We are still the fastest in the business (despite what some of our competitors try to claim) but anyone applying for a pardon should expect 6-12 for completion of an expedited file and 12-18 months for completion of a standard file. Hopefully once the Parole Board has reorganized these times will drop again but for the moment that is what we are looking at.
