Count on Us for Criminal Background Check in Toronto & SCARBOROUGH

In Canada, the process of determining whether the individual has a criminal record or not with the help of the applicant’s name and date of birth or fingerprints is known as a criminal background check, record check, police check, police certificate or CPIC (check or police clearance). Trust the qualified professionals at Canadian Fingerprinting Services when you are in need of a criminal background check of anyone in Toronto. In order to make the process easy for you, we offer same-day service with accurate results.

A criminal background check is conducted for various purposes such as employment, foreign travel, work permits, visa applications, volunteer work at a school or organization, real estate license, taxi license, trucking license and other civil purposes. At Canadian Fingerprinting Services, we provide original clearance or a CPIC check as per your organization’s requirements. We provide this on the basis of the applicant’s name and date of birth only, or using fingerprints (if a criminal record is discovered) using the live scan technology that allows us to submit the fingerprints electronically to the RCMP database. The turnaround time for these criminal background checks will range between 3 to 4 hours.
