Application process

Applying for someone else is strictly prohibited. The security questions for verifying your identity are generated based on your credit file information. These questions are timed to ensure quick and secure responses, safeguarding your privacy. Be aware that applying for a record check on behalf of someone else constitutes a criminal offence.

International applicants

This service is designed for individuals residing and working within Canada. If you are outside Canada and require a police check, you must contact the RCMP to obtain one through fingerprint submission. This ensures that you receive the appropriate documentation for your needs, regardless of your location.
