What we cannot do:
+ CRJMC - Criminal Records and Judicial Matters Check (Level 2): Only local police can do this. If the police require the customer’s fingerprints for the check, they will give an Introduction Letter to an applicant then we can provide the fingerprinting service.
+ VSC - Vulnerable Sector Check (Level 3): Only local police can do this. If the police require the customer’s fingerprints for the check, they will give a Request Letter to an applicant (which includes the instructions and their address for the result to be sent back to) then we can provide the fingerprinting service.
+ Name-based Background Check: Applicants will need to do it with local police.
+ RECO License: They usually need to obtain Level 2 Background Check. We can still do it if they insist on obtaining Level 1 – Criminal Background Check for this reason.
+ Biometrics: Biometrics is different from Fingerprints for Police Check, and it is only provided by Service Canada.
Fingerprinting service for criminal record check in Canada: We only take fingerprints and submit electronically to the RCMP in Canada then the RCMP is responsible for the Criminal Record Check and mailing back the Police Clearance Certificate to applicants or designated third parties.

***For a list of countries which accept C-216C fingerprint card from Canada, please refer to our website: https://www.f1fingerprint.ca/fbi-c216-fingerprint-card or check directly on Canadian Government website. However, the best practice is to ask applicants directly for the requirements from their country.
Fingerprinting service for background check in other countries (who request the fingerprints on their own forms): Customers must bring the form sent from their country for the INK fingerprinting service. We roll their fingers with ink and give back the form to them. Customers need to mail the card to corresponding department of their country for the check, by themselves.
