Criminal Background Check (CPIC) – Same Day Service in Scarborough and Mississauga
In Canada, individuals may be required to have a criminal record check (also known as Background Check, CPIC, Police Clearance, Criminal Background Check, Police Clearance Certificate, Police Check, and Police Records Check) for employment, volunteer work, a school program, real estate licence, warehouse, taxi licence, trucking licence and other civil screening purposes.
A Criminal Record Check is a search based on individual’s name and date of birth, in the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records to determine whether an individual has a criminal record. A Criminal Record Check may also include a search of a Canadian police service’s local records, which may reveal criminal record information that has not been reported to the RCMP.
Worldwide Forensic Services Inc. is under a Memorandum of Understanding with Canadian Police Service to provide name and date of birth based police clearance (CPIC). The applications are processed through the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database and the results can be provided as fast as in 3 hours.
We charge only $35.00 plus HST for the same day service. You can walk-in to our Scarborough or Mississauga office with two pieces of ID and complete an application form. We transmit that information to the police service and the clearance letter is issued by the police on their letter head. You do not need to wait for two/three weeks for obtaining criminal background check.
At least one of the following primary pieces of identification must be provided, along with a secondary I.D. that includes a signature:
- Driver’s Licence (issued by Canadian province or territory)
- Foreign Driver’s Licence
- Canadian Passport
- Foreign Passport
- Canadian Citizenship Card
- Permanent Resident (PR) Card
- Certificate of Indian Status

Please be advised:
We do not offer vulnerable sector check screening.
We do not offer background checks to individuals below the age 18 years.
Health Card (issued by a Canadian Province or territory) is not acceptable as a primary piece of identification. It is acceptable as a secondary piece of identification.
The results are strictly confidential and are provided to the applicant only, unless requested by the applicant by signing a third party consent waiver.
