The quickest way to obtain Certified Criminal Record Check (Police Clearance) from Canada.
Worldwide Forensic Services Inc is accredited and certified by the CCRTIS Division of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) Canada to convert fingerprints on paper to encrypted digital format for electronic transmission. We are affiliated with ClearNeed Information Systems Inc and have helped thousands of local and international clients to obtain Canadian police clearance (also known as Police Check, Criminal Background Check, Certificate of Good Conduct, Canadian PCC etc.), by digitizing inked fingerprints and electronically transmitting to the RCMP.
Get your fingerprints taken by the local police and send us the original fingerprint form. We will digitize inked fingerprints with card-scan technology and electronically transmit to the RCMP.
Please us a quick message and we will email you the guidelines and all the forms, as soon as possible:
The fingerprints are transmitted to the RCMP, the same day we receive them. The Certified Criminal Record Check (duly certified, embossed and signed by the RCMP on their letterhead, click here to see the sample) is directly sent by the RCMP to the applicant or a third-party, via Canada Post regular mail. An electronic transmission of fingerprints to the RCMP reduces wait time to 3–5 business days plus the mailing time*. To further speed up the process, we can receive certified criminal record check from the RCMP and send it to the applicant or a third-party (as per request) via courier, at an additional cost. This is the quickest way to obtain police clearance certificate from Canada.
*If a person was ever charged by the police in Canada (convicted or not convicted), overstayed in Canada or deported from Canada, the processing time can be up to 120 days or even more.
We accept Ink & Roll fingerprints taken by fingerprinting agencies or police authorities from all the countries. We also accept Live Scan digital fingerprints, printed on paper.

Authentication and Legalization of the RCMP’s Certified Criminal Record Check
Foreign Governments and Organizations sometimes require the RCMP’s Certified Criminal Record Check to be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT) and legalized by the respective embassy/consulate, before they accept it.
Canada is not a signatory of Hague Convention abolishing the requirement for legalization for foreign public documents; therefore the term “Apostille” is not used for certification of documents in Canada. The documents originating in Canada need to be authenticated and legalized for use in a foreign country.
In addition to our express fingerprinting services, we can get RCMP’s certified criminal record check authenticated by DFAIT and legalized by an embassy/consulate in Canada, at reduced cost.
