National Defence Act
Marginal note:Review and remission
217 (1) Where a punishment has been suspended, it may at any time, and shall at intervals of not more than three months, be reviewed by a suspending authority and if on the review it appears to the suspending authority that the conduct of the offender, since the punishment was suspended, has been such as to justify a remission of the punishment, the suspending authority shall remit it.
Marginal note:Automatic remission of punishments
(2) A punishment, except a punishment referred to in subsection (3), that has been suspended shall be deemed to be wholly remitted on the expiration of a period, commencing on the day the suspension was ordered, equal to the term of the punishment less any time during which the offender has been incarcerated following pronouncement of the sentence, unless the punishment has been put into execution prior to the expiration of that period.
Marginal note:Automatic remission of detention
(3) A punishment of detention that has been suspended is deemed to be wholly remitted on the expiration of one year commencing on the day the suspension was ordered, unless the punishment has been put into execution prior to the expiration of that period.
