Get Police Verified Online Criminal Record Checks Within Minutes

Name and Date of Birth based Criminal Record Checks are also known as Criminal Record Check, Level 1 Criminal Record Check CPIC, CPIC1, CRC, Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check, Level 2 Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check, Enhanced Criminal Record Check, CRJMC, CPIC2, ECPIC Police Record Checks, Police Information Checks, Police Background Checks, Police Clearance Certificate, and Records of Good Conduct.

These checks do not require fingerprints. Checks are performed using a person’s name and date of birth against the RCMP’s Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) system.  This consists of a check of the National Repository of Criminal Records and may also include searches of other national and local police databases.

Commissionaires offers an Enhanced Criminal Record Check at NO extra cost. Our Enhanced Criminal Record Check, also known as a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check (CRJMC), captures not only convictions but also flag outstanding warrants, charges and judicial orders.

Service Price: $55 CAD + tax, for online applications. In-person application prices vary.

This service is only available in Canada. If you are located outside of Canada, whether you are a Canadian citizen or a foreign citizen, please visit International Fingerprinting.

Step 1: Submit Application

The online application process takes less than 10 minutes and includes secure payment processing with a credit card.

Your application will be submitted automatically through a direct and secure connection to our police partners.  Please note that NO refunds will be issued once you have submitted your application.

To verify your identity, Electronic ID Verification (eIV) will ask you up to four questions about your credit history. If you cannot answer the questions about your credit history to satisfy eIV requirements, you will be required to present your identification in person at one of our offices or a participating Canada Post outlet.  

Step 2: Get Results Within 15 minutes

Criminal Record Checks are typically processed within 15 minutes between 8am and 8pm EST Monday to Friday, excluding holidays.

Once processed, you will receive your results by email. Your report includes a document integrity verification feature that allows employers to confirm that your certificate has not been tampered with or altered.

If a name and date of birth check matches another individual after you complete your online application, fingerprints will be required.
