How to get Canada Police Certificate?

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I live in Toronto Canada and waiting for K1 interview. Anyone can share experience doing Canada Police Certificate? Just go to local RCMP? Is name based check or fingerprint check required for K1(I heard is just name based one)? I'm Canadian citizen but have no passport yet. Is Canadian passport required for it? 

Thank you!

Not sure if it has changed since I did mine was quite a while ago but I was in Hamilton just went to main police station (not rcmp) told them I needed my police record .

I had no records so was just 1 page stating no records found.

And it was all I needed

you need to do the one with fingerprints. rules have changed. make sure you tell them its for immigration to the US. it can also take a couple of months to obtain.

No actually you give fingerprints but they're not on the police certificate.


~~For the OPs sanity i am moving this to the Canada regional forum from K1 process and procedures so they can read the already 35 page like topic about police certs. ~~

 

OP you NEED a passport to get the visa.  Get one asap!

If you don’t require manual processing it’s not too bad.

Go to your local police and request your criminal record check under the privacy act. Be aware that the request itself is free, but they will charge you to take your fingerprints which are required for the record search. 

 

Make sure they request under “show all holdings” or “show entire RCMP holdings” not “border crossing” (the border crossing certificate will have fingerprints and photo visible on the paper. You do not want them visible). 

 

You will need two pieces of government issued ID, not necessarily passport. But you will need your passport once you get to the interview stage, so I’d suggest applying for that ASAP if you haven’t already.
