Many people believe that once an individual has completed a jail or prison sentence, they are able to walk away and leave the experience behind them. However, this is far from reality. Any adult convicted of an offence in Canada incurs a criminal record, which can follow them indefinitely. An individual with a criminal record can face many challenges including access to housing, education, and training and volunteer opportunities. To better understand the impact of police records on employment in New Brunswick, the John Howard Society of Southeastern New Brunswick (JHSSENB) replicated a survey conducted by the Centre of Research, Policy & Program Development (the Centre) at the John Howard Society of Ontario (JHSO), to explore the hiring practices and policies of employers across the province (n=34). The research, supported through funding from the New Brunswick Law Foundation, contributes to the understanding of the impact of police records on employment opportunities and community reintegration in Canada.
