Memo: Humanizing Criminal Records – Ontario’s Police Record Checks Reform Act Review

Cardus made a submission to the Ministry of the Solicitor General's legislative review of the Police Record Checks Reform Act. We recommend that the Government of Ontario require that the results of police record checks include positive, general information about the employability of persons with criminal records. We also recommend giving people with criminal records the option of including positive, individual-specific information directly on the results of their police record checks.
