Can an employer ask me if I have a police record? OLD

Ask the police to correct your record

If you think there are mistakes on your police record, you can ask the police to either:

  • correct it
  • add a statement from you about why you think it’s wrong

Check the police service’s website to see if they have a form you can use to make your request. If they don’t have their own form, you can use this standard request form from the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario.

If the police refuse to do what you ask them, you can appeal to the Information and Privacy Commissioner of Ontario. They can review that decision and order the police to make the correction.
