  • The Sexual Offender Registration Acts classify individuals who have been convicted of sexual related crimes.
  • SORA determines the levels of risk that this person has in terms of re-offending in the future.
  • The highest risk individuals are Level 3 and the lowest risk individuals are Level 1 offenders.
  • These classifications impact an individual’s future because it determines where they can live, the type of employment they can obtain and whether or not they can ever be removed from the list.
  • Level 1 offenders can be removed from the registry after 20 years but Level 2 and 3 offenders are on the registry for the rest of their lives. Level 2 and 3 offenders are also on the registry for the public to view, while Level 1 offenders are only on the registry available for law enforcement.
