OVERVIEW OF SERVICES
INK & ROLL FINGERPRINTING
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.

CRIMINAL RECORD CHECK (CPIC and e-CPICs)
Commissionaires provides criminal record checks (also known as criminal history record checks, police record checks, police certificates, CPICs, police clearances, criminal background checks, RCMP criminal record checks) for the purposes of pre-employment screening, visa applications and foreign travel / work permits to individuals, employees or organizations. As well, Criminal Record Checks may be used for Real Estate Licensing and Mortgage Broker licensing (FICOM).
This service is offered in-person at one of our convenient processing locations or online. See Services & Fees for pricing details. To begin the Electronic Criminal Record Check (eCPIC) process, please click the button below.
We are also able to perform digital fingerprinting to support a police service or RCMP detachment that requests a Vulnerable Sector Search. If you have received a letter of instruction from the Ministry of Justice requesting Digital Fingerprinting for a Vulnerable Sector Search, we assist in this process. In order to complete this service, please be sure to bring this letter of instruction with you. The Vulnerable Sector Search must be initiated with either your local police, RCMP or the Ministry of Justice.
