Employment Applications: Depending on your employment type, you may need to provide fingerprints for obtaining a criminal record check from RCMP or in support of your security clearance application.
Federal Employment: If you are applying for a position with the Federal Government of Canada or a Canadian company that has contract agreements with the Federal Government, you may be required to obtain a security clearance (such as reliability clearance).
You must bring two pieces of a valid ID and a letter issued by your company/organization requesting fingerprints to ensure your results will be sent to the correct organization. After we submit your application to the RCMP, we will provide you with a letter containing your DCN number which can be submitted to your company as proof that you completed your fingerprints.
Please note that the RCMP will not mail you your results and your company could verify your clearance with the DCN number provided to you during your appointment.
Provincial, Municipal, Territorial Employment: If you are applying for employment with a provincial or municipal government, you may be asked to provide a certified criminal record from the RCMP.

Please make sure to bring a request letter issued by the provincial/municipal government asking you to submit a criminal record check to ensure we submit the correct application to the RCMP.
Private Sector Employment: Depending on your type of employment, you may be required to submit a certified criminal record check from the RCMP even if your company is within the private sector.
Also, if you require a certified criminal record check as part of your licensing requirements (ex. CICC), you may choose this option at the time of booking your appointment.
Please note that we cannot assist you with a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check (CRJMC) which is required by some companies or licensing bodies such as RECO. For a CRJMC, you will need to visit your local police station.

Please only book an appointment with our office when you have been requested to submit your fingerprints.
You can start your vulnerable sector check application at your local police station. However, if there is a match to your name, you will be provided with a letter requesting your fingerprints. You must bring this referral letter with you to your appointment as we cannot submit your application without the letter from the police.

Please note that once your application has been submitted to the RCMP, we have no control over the processing times. Your application might take longer to be processed by the RCMP, if there is a match to your name or if there are delays.
