At 15, I was charged and found guilty (not convicted, read YCJA to see difference) of a crime. I later moved to the US (Boston) with my family. I am now 21 and undergoing a background check for medical school. The background check asks for my previous addresses, and once I list my Canadian address, I think that will prompt them to do a background check in Canada as well (could be wrong though). My record is still technically open, and will be automatically sealed in 2 years. I don't know if juvenile records in Canada are shared during background checks though.
The company doing the background check for med school is called Certiphi.
What's the likelihood this incident will pop up on a background check? I previously had a background check done by a company called beenverified, and nothing came back.
Also, on the form for medical school it asks me "Have you ever been convicted of a crime?"
I answered no to this, because under the YCJA, minors are not convicted, but are found "guilty", and it states we can answer no to the above question.
