Clarification - RCMP Certified Criminal Check - CANADA ONLY

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to provide a clarification that I obtained from NVC today regarding the RCMP certified criminal check.  Their website states that fingerprints must be shown on the document, however per their September 10, 2018 update requiring the check be requested under the Canadian Privacy Act the document you receive does not have fingerprints shown.


I spoke to a NVC rep and supervisor today and they confirmed that the document they use for comparison and approval does NOT have fingerprints on it.  They are looking into this on their end and updating things accordingly.  Please continue to use the September 10, 2018 update/comments when requesting the certified criminal check.
