A self-background check is where you, the individual, take the initiative to research and review your own personal history.

Before Your Background Check

The information we share with our clients is sourced from a reliable Canadian Police Agency. Crimcheck Canada partners with many police departments across Canada to get name-based criminal record checks from the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC). CPIC is the only national source of criminal records in Canada.

Yes, in Canada, individuals can request their own criminal record check through an online process. Crim Check provides an online service. This service allows individuals to request a copy of their criminal record or crjmc check.

In Canada, a criminal record check itself does not have a fixed expiration date, as the information provided is a snapshot of an individual's criminal history at the time of the check. However, it's essential to note that the acceptability or validity of a criminal record check may be subject to the policies and requirements of the organization or agency requesting it.

We carry out criminal background check, based on the name and Date of Birth of an applicant, utilizing the database of Canadian Police agencies. This criminal record search provides information about the criminal convictions of the applicant within the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records, for which a pardon/record suspension has not been granted. All information discovered regarding the criminal record will be up to date till the date of the search.

The background check result will also contain voluntary disclosure of the record by the individual. A “Not Clear” determination during the checks will indicate confirmation of disclosure when provided by the individual.

Please note:

Details of criminal record convictions are not available in a Criminal Record check. Local police or accredited fingerprinting agencies release these details upon conducting fingerprint verification. Please feel free to contact crimcheck.ca for further information.

Information excluded in a Criminal background check is as following:

  • Convictions where a pardon/ record suspension has been granted
