  1. High-risk applicants may be assessed an additional fee of $250+GST if the Parole Board proposes to deny your file, which typically happens in the following cases (a) your record is very serious and/or long; or (b) if you have had subsequent charges since last convicted–even if no conviction resulted.  In these types of cases, the Parole Board may make additional requests (proving rehabilitation) which will result in much more work on your file.
  2. If your Record Suspension is subsequently denied and provided no further charges/convictions result following the denial, then the cost to re-apply is $195+disbursements.
