OVERVIEW OF SERVICES

DIGITAL FINGERPRINTING

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.

SCAN TO DIGITAL SERVICE

We offer scan to digital service for individuals that are unable to get digital fingerprinting done. Since the RCMP no longer accepts ink and roll fingerprints (implemented in July 2014), Commissionaires will take care of the legwork for you. We will scan your ink and roll fingerprint card and create and send an electronic file to the RCMP for processing. 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 overseas. Click here for instructions.

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.
