Step 7 – Complete the Schedule 1 Exception Form (if applicable)

♪ (music playing) ♪

Now, let's take a closer look at Step 7 in the Application Guide Completing the Schedule 1 Exceptions Form.

If you have not been convicted of a Schedule 1 offence under the Criminal Records Act, a sexual offence involving a child, you do not need to complete this form.

You can skip to Step 8. If you have been convicted of a Schedule 1 offence under the CRA, you must complete this form.

Under the CRA, a person convicted of a Schedule 1 offence is not eligible for a record suspension.

However, the CRA does list an exception in these cases.

Under the CRA, a person who has been convicted of a Schedule 1 offence may apply for a record suspension if the board is satisfied that: (a) the person was not in a position of trust or authority towards the victim of the offence and the victim was not in a relationship of dependency with him or her; (b) the person did not use, threaten to use or attempt to use violence, intimidation or coercion in relation to the victim; and (c) the person was less than five years older than the victim.

This form is where you will provide the board with information on how you meet each of these three criteria.

You should have the form in front of you as we go through this step.

You can find the form in the back of the Application Guide.

Now, let's take a look at the "Schedule 1 Exception form".

Make sure that you answer all questions and sign and date both sides of the form.

Print your answers using block letters in blue ink only.

If you run out of room on the form, you can attach additional pages to the form with the extra information on it.

Remember to make a photocopy of this form for your own files once you've filled it in.

Now, let's start with Section A - "Personal Information".

Under Section A, "What is your full legal name?", write down your last name, followed by your first name in the spaces provided.

Next, under "What is your date of birth?", fill in the year, month, and day that you were born in the spaces provided. Next, sign your name in the space provided.

Now let's take a look at Section B - Exceptions.

This is where you will provide information that tells the board how you meet the criteria listed under the Criminal Records Act for Schedule 1 offences.

In Part 1, explain how you were not in a position of trust or authority with the victim, and how the victim was not in a relationship of dependency with you. Include as much detail as possible.

Once you've filled this information in, turn the form over, and write down your full legal name again, as well as your date of birth, in the spaces provided.

These must be the same as the ones that you wrote on page 1 of the form.

Now, in Part 2, you need to provide information that shows that you did not use, threaten to use, or attempt to use violence, intimidation or coercion in relation to the victim.

Include as much detail as possible.

Finally, in Part 3, you need to provide proof that you were less than five years older than the victim at the time of the offence. Proof of your age and the age of the victim at the time of the offence may be provided in the form of a court document, police report and/ or an affidavit.
