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 and 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. For clients out of the country, we offer scan to digital service, which transfers an ink and roll fingerprint card to digital form. As well, we have fingerprinting forms for many countries such as Japan, South Africa, Kenya, Singapore and others. We now offer digital roll fingerprinting services in lieu of traditional ink cards.
Scan to Digital Fingerprinting Services


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. Click here for instructions.
criminal record check


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. eCPIC Registration
