Unauthorized possession of firearm (CC 91 (1)) / prohibited weapon (91(2)) – Common Criminal Charges

Unauthorized possession of firearm (CC 91 (1)) / Unauthorized possession of a prohibited weapon (91(2)) is a hybrid offence, but it is normally tried summarily unless the individual is also being charged with other more serious offences. In cases where someone is convicted of this offence alone, they are usually required to pay fine and they are likely to be prohibited from possessing weapons for some period of time.

A Record Suspension will remove any record of an assault conviction from an individual’s criminal history. The record of conviction will be kept separate and apart and will not be released to third parties through criminal background checks.

A criminal record for assault can mean that an individual is prevented from finding employment, doing volunteer work and being bonded. It can also make it difficult for an individual to become a Canadian citizen or permanent resident.

In some cases a criminal record it can prevent them from entering Canada entirely.

A Record Suspension will remove these obstacles.
