Fingerprint-Based Criminal Background Check (RCMP)
& Name-based Criminal Background Check

​Dear client:

PLEASE DO NOT be confused between the RCMP-fingerprint process and the Name-based criminal check process.

Although both serve the same purpose of criminal background checks, the RCMP-fingerprint process is more stringent and widely accepted by most authorities. The certificate is ONLY processed and issued by the RCMP. No matter where you go to take your fingerprints, the processing time and mailing time is the same and dependable on the RCMP. It is not possible to get your certificate within 24 or 48 hours. The normal processing time is within 72 hours and the certificate is issued and sent ONLY by regular mail. NO EXCEPTIONS.

The named-based criminal background check is conducted by some agencies and local police. It is only based on your name and date of birth and the result could be much faster. However, please keep in mind that many authorities DO NOT accept the name-based criminal check so be sure to check with your requesting authority before proceeding.
