Step 7 - Complete the Schedule 1 Exception Form

If you have not been convicted of a Schedule 1 offence under the CRA, you do not need to complete the Exception Form. Skip to Step 8.

If you have been convicted of a Schedule 1 offence, you must complete the Exception Form if you are applying for a record suspension. Under Section 4(3) of the CRA, a person who has been convicted of an offence referred to in Schedule 1 may apply for a record suspension if the Board is satisfied that:

  • 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;
  • The person did not use, threaten to use or attempt to use violence, intimidation or coercion in relation to the victim; and,
  • The person was less than five years older than the victim.

Fill in all sections of the Exception Form. If you do not fill in all sections, the Parole Board of Canada (PBC) will return your application to you. If you don't have enough room to include all the requested information, attach additional pages to the form.
