Canadian Police Certificate

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

This is an update for people who were interested in getting a Canadian police certificate from outside the country. I am not saying this will work for everyone. My husband lived in Canada for 2 years. He is now in Brazil, immigrating to the US. We went through COmmissionaires to get a name-based certificate. we submitted this and were initially told it was not acceptable. I sent letters to NVC indicating that this was a name-based certificate based on CPIC search by RCMP and was identical to that we would would get if we were "present" in Canada. I also contacted a state congressperson who inquired for us as well. While her office did not get any additional information, 2 weeks later we have received notification that Gustavo is scheduled for an interview. The letter that was sent from NVC says the police certificate was accepted. What ever the reason, I am grateful and can't wait for this process to be over so our life together can begin.

I ran into a similar problem of getting a police certificate from outside the country. I had a friend of a friend who was an RCMP officer. He got it for us, thankfully. Your information is very valuable to others who might be in the same boat. I wasn't sure what else I would have done at the time (full-fingerprint requests take 3-4 months!). We were even considering my wife returning to Canada just for getting the police record.

We applied for our Canadian POlice Certificate with fingerprints in early June. Yesterday it arrived. Apparently Canda is getting a bit quicker about getting these done. IRonically, NVC had already approved our application and acepted the name based certificate.

Good luck to everyone, hope this is good news for a few of you.
