Pardon fee increase to $631 from $150

The purpose of this communication is to inform you that the user fee for processing a pardon application will be increasing to $631 as of February 23, 2012.

As you know, the increase to the user fee follows through on the Government’s plan to implement a new fee system that requires users to assume the cost of processing a pardon application.

The new fee will provide the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) with the additional capacity to manage its pardons workloads, and to address operational requirements as a result of changes to the Criminal Records Act (CRA).It will ensure the effectiveness and sustainability of the Pardons program, and that the PBC can continue to meet its important public safety mandate.

Applications received or post-marked on or before February 22, 2012, will be accepted under the former $150 application fee as long as they are deemed to be eligible and complete by the PBC at the time of receipt.

Ineligible and incomplete applications will be returned to the applicant along with their $150 application fee. These applicants will become subject to the new fee as of February 23, 2012.

Please share this information.
