Digital Fingerprinting

Commissionaires has been accredited by the RCMP to conduct digital fingerprinting for the last 15 years. We offer the latest, secure technology, ensuring quick and reliable results for you. Digital fingerprinting is available for citizenship, immigration, employment, travel, record suspensions and more. The process takes about 15 minutes, and you will receive results in about 10 days.

As of July 2014, Ottawa RCMP no longer conducts fingerprint comparison checks based on ink and roll. All fingerprint transmissions must be sent electronically. For those who are unable to receive digital fingerprinting, consider our Scan to Digital service.


Commissionaires provides criminal record checks (also known as criminal history record checks, police record checks, police certificates, CPICs, police clearances, criminal background checks, RCMP criminal record checks) for the purposes of pre-employment screening, visa applications and foreign travel / work permits to individuals, employees or organizations. As well, Criminal Record Checks may be used for Real Estate Licensing and Mortgage Broker licensing (FICOM). This service is offered in-person at one of our convenient processing locations or online.
