Turn the page on your criminal record!

The Elizabeth Fry Society of Quebec has been offering an accompaniment service since May 2023 for pardon and criminal record suspension applications.

This service is free and available remotely or in person at our three locations (Montreal, Quebec City and Gatineau) in French and English. It is offered to women and gender-diverse people.

Are you afraid to apply for a job because of your record?  
Have you ever been turned down for an apartment because of your record?  
Do you hesitate to travel because of your record?

The ARPE project (Aide régionale au pardon pour Elles) aims to help people verify their eligibility for a pardon or record suspension, and to support them in the necessary steps. Financial assistance to cover the costs of certain steps may be granted to people experiencing financial difficulties.
