Registrant information remains on the NSOR database indefinitely, except for cases where the registrant is acquitted on appeal, or receives a formal pardon under the Royal Prerogative of Mercy (Criminal Code, 1985; SOIRA, 2004).
Failure to comply with SOIRA is an offence under the Canadian Criminal Code.
The NSOR is not open to the public and SOIRA restricts access to the database, allowing police employees to access the data only after specific conditions are met.
