Clemency - Schedule B
If you think your situation meets the criteria outlined in Schedule A, complete the Royal Prerogative of Mercy (RPM) / Corrections and Conditional Release Act (CCRA) Application Form and return it to the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) along with all of the documents described below. Clemency can only be considered where there is sufficient official documentation to support the claim of undue hardship.
