What happens to my criminal record file after I have been granted a pardon/record suspension?

Once a pardon/record suspension is granted, the records of a pardoned/suspended offence(s) in the custody of federal agencies (RCMP) are kept separate and apart. Information pertaining to such records will not be disclosed without the specific approval of the Minister of Public Safety. When notified of the award of a pardon/record suspension under the CRA, almost all provincial and municipal agencies will restrict disclosure of your criminal record (unless there is a prohibition order or you are listed on the sex registry).
