Who We Are
POLICE CHECKS - turnaround 24-48 hours
All verifications are done in the National Criminal Records repository through the Canadian police information centre (CPIC) which is generated and maintained by the royal Canadian mounted police (RCMP). The Client information collected by Identification Canada inc. and the name-based criminal police check requests are to be submitted to Canadian law enforcement agencies to perform police checks. Identification Canada inc. establishes and maintains the required infrastructure and channels for submitting name-based criminal police check requests to the agencies with the hit/no-hit responses routed back to client / company.
The royal Canadian mounted police (RCMP) will only accept fingerprint submissions by certified agencies with a valid ORI number. As a certified agency, we submit biometric fingerprints directly to the royal Canadian mounted police (RCMP) server. Processing time is 3-4 business days when records are clear. If there is a “hit”, processing times can go over 120 days.
A record suspension (formerly a pardon) allows people who were convicted of a criminal offense, but have completed their sentence and demonstrated they are law-abiding citizens for a prescribed number of years, to have their criminal record kept separate and apart from other criminal records. We complete the record suspension application for our clients from beginning to end. We obtain a copy of the RCMP report, court documents, local police records check as well as complete all the necessary government forms.
US ENTRY WAIVER
When a person traveling to the United States is refused entry at the border for having a criminal record in Canada or in any other country, they need a special permission to re-enter. This application allows inadmissible nonimmigrant aliens to apply for advance permission to temporarily enter the United States. We obtain a copy of the RCMP report, court documents which we have translated if necessary, as well as complete all the necessary government forms.
WHERE WE ARE GOING
Having been vetted and certified by PWGSC for the handling of protected “B” documents, being certified by credit companies such as Equifax and/or TransUnion to perform credit checks is a small step away. We are presently engaged in talks with various policing agencies to offer “web based” police checks. This would allow potential clients to apply on a secure online site. This is only one example of where technology is taking us and we are fully committed to maintain and keep up to date with current available technologies.
