Criminal Background Checking Services in Canada

Canadian police certificate (record check by name and date of birth only, not fingerprint based) can be performed. To conduct a Police Records Check, the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database, operated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP), is searched for relevant criminal record information and/or the existence of a CPIC record. The CPIC database is a compilation of police information and court decisions. Information collected in the CPIC database includes individuals who:

have a criminal record for any Criminal Code or other Federal Statute offence and/or
have been judged not criminally responsible for an offence because of mental disorder and/or
have federal and/or provincial charges pending and/or
are on probation or subject to a Prohibition Order.

The voluntary organization must have your written permission to request a PRC. Since 2001, as a result of amendments to the Criminal Records Act, criminal records of pardoned sex offenders can be made available to organizations that work with vulnerable people. Your written consent is required to search the CPIC database for pardoned sexual offences. Depending on the juristiction, we also work with local police agencies to access their own databases, which contain information about every complaint they receive. Examples of complaints include:

local disturbances
offences contrary to provincial statutes (such as traffic violations or liquor-related violations)
abuse of children
allegations of offences where charges were not laid.
