We do criminal background screenings in support of Canadian and International adoptions; foreign travel visas, U.S. waivers and border crossing; employment applications for federal, provincial and municipal governments, as well as private industry and Canadian police forces. We also screen for those interested in volunteer work, applications for immigration to Canada, permanent resident status or Canadian citizenship; applications to obtain criminal records to apply for a pardon and name changes.
Fingerprints taken at police services, courts, government and other accredited private fingerprinting agencies around the world can be converted to a digital format certified by the RCMP. While not compulsory, the RCMP c216c form is available for download and use on our website and at most Canadian Embassies and Consulates. That being said, most countries like to use their own fingerprint forms when creating ink fingerprint cards to be sent overseas. Thanks to our robust certifications, we are able to accept fingerprint cards from any country. If you are concerned as to whether or not we can digitize your fingerprint card, just call us or send a sample and we will confirm that we can process your application.
No matter where you want to go, or what you want to do, the buck stops here. There is no substitute for an RCMP Certified Criminal Record Check.
RCMP CCRTIS maintains the national repository of fingerprint and criminal record information. It is mandated to provide direct operational support to the Canadian law enforcement, criminal justice, and public security communities, as well as international partners such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Interpol for criminal, civil, and immigration fingerprint purposes. CCRTIS is the sole provider of criminal record verification for civil and criminal court purposes, as well as the security screening environment for all levels of government and the general public.
Prompt and Reliable Fingerprinting Services
Our digital fingerprint service is a quick and easy process, especially convenient for those overseas. We are able to digitize and submit any foreign fingerprint card shortly after it arrives at our office. CCRTIS clients submitting electronic fingerprints now receive responses within 3 to 6 business days. The goal of CCRTIS is to respond to 85% of electronically submitted civil fingerprint requests within 72 hours. However, if a criminal record is encountered during the verification process, the turnaround time could exceed 120 days.
