In Canada, in order to obtain a name based criminal record check search, a properly completed and signed informed consent must be completed by the applicant. The witness must verify the identity of the person being searched, by checking two pieces of ID, one of which must be a proper photo ID as described on the consent. The consent which can be found under the "Forms" section, and your IDs MUST be scanned and forwarded to CSI via email or through our secure document upload page which is located on the homepage. We recommend that all applicants be rechecked every two years.
As an “add-on” to the Canadian Criminal Record Check we can also include a search for pending charges, charges not resulting in convictions, warrants, prohibitions, probation orders and local police indices. This option can be chosen as an additional service when placing an order for the Canadian Criminal Record Check. The applicant must also self-declare this information.
A Police Clearance Letter is a certificate on police letterhead, signed by police verifying the results of your criminal check. This is not a Certified Criminal check but is sometimes used for employers to verify results.
NOTE: A standard Canadian Criminal Record Check does not include a search of the Pardoned Sex Offenders Registry (generally referred to as a Vulnerable Sector Search). However, CSI can conduct this search for you if it is required for your job or position. Please call us for information.
CSI complies with Canadian and Provincial privacy policies and will assist our clients in the proper steps of obtaining these records.
IMPORTANT: Before your Criminal Record Check can be completed, you must fill out the CONSENT FORM on our website and submit it to us. In addition, two (2) pieces of ID are required to complete this process.
