OVERVIEW OF SERVICES
Commissionaires has been accredited by the RCMP to conduct digital fingerprinting for the last 15 years. We offer the latest, secure technology, ensuring quick and reliable results for you. Digital fingerprinting is available for citizenship, immigration, employment, travel, record suspensions and more. The process takes approximately 15 minutes to complete and you will receive results fast in as
little as 10 days.
As of July 2014, Ottawa RCMP no longer conducts fingerprint comparison checks based on ink and roll. All fingerprint transmissions must be sent electronically. For those who are unable to receive digital fingerprinting, consider our Scan to Digital service. FAQS
INK & ROLL FINGERPRINTING
Commissionaires continues to offer traditional ink and roll fingerprinting for the RCMP C-216C form and the FBI (FD-258) forms for those who may need to send fingerprints to another country for a record check or for a government clearance. As well, for out of the country clients, we offer scan to digital service, so that an ink and roll fingerprint card is transferred to digital form. This assists those who are unable to travel to Canada to have digital fingerprinting done.
"Important notice: Effective July 1, 2014, the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) will only accept electronic fingerprint for submissions for civil purposes. Paper submissions will not be processed and will be returned to the originator. You are encouraged to visit the CCRTIS website to obtain information regarding accredited companies that offer electronic fingerprinting services or to consult with your local police service. For the website, click here.
INTERNATIONAL FINGERPRINTING – SCAN TO DIGITAL SERVICE
We offer scan to digital service for individuals that are unable to visit our offices to have digital fingerprinting done. Since the RCMP no longer accepts ink and roll fingerprints (implemented in July 2014), Commissionaires will digitize your ink and roll prints for submission to RCMP using our scan to digital technology. This reduces the processing time for a no record found search from up to 6 months to as little as 7 to 10 business days with results being mailed to anywhere in the world in as little as a week. This service benefits clients needing an RCMP certified background check that live in an area which does not have digital fingerprinting services, as well as clients currently living outside Canada.
