Introduction
Pardons temper, but do not eliminate, the effects of criminal convictions. Pardons may be granted under two federal statutes: the Criminal Records Act, R.S.C. 1985, c. 12 (the Criminal Records Act) which is titled: An Act to provide for the relief of persons who have been convicted of offences and have subsequently rehabilitated themselves, and the Criminal Code, R.S.C. 1985, C. C-46 (the Criminal Code). The purpose of this article is to briefly outline the legislation dealing with pardons and to discuss the effect of pardons.
