A Criminal Record is a list of convictions for each and every person who has already been convicted due to criminal offences they have committed. It does not contain a list of those who have been formally discharged by court. Conditional charges are also kept in the same system but they are subsequently expunged from the records after three years when the conditions for the sentence have all been fulfilled. You will normally see in a criminal record the name of the person, date of birth and personal characteristics, as well as a list of their criminal convictions. The Criminal Records are kept and maintained by the RCMP.
