Clean Slate Erasure
On January 1, 2023, certain cannabis convictions will be automatically erased. Other cannabis convictions and some older non-cannabis convictions can be erased if you submit a petition.
Once the automated erasure technology is fully implemented, many other convictions will be automatically erased through the Clean Slate program with no action required from you. Those convictions can be erased from your record if you haven’t committed any new crimes in seven or 10 years (the time frame depends on the type of conviction). You must also have finished serving the sentences for all crimes you’ve been convicted of.
