For a residency or work visa application in foreign countries or when it is a time to renew your existing documents you will be required to present a Canadian Criminal Record Check Certificate Apostilled or authenticated in order to get approved.
There are three types of Criminal Record Check Certificates we offer: Federally issued, Provincially issued and Electronically issued.
The Federally issued RCMP Criminal Record Check Certificate is offered by RCMP Headquarters in Ottawa. The Ottawa RCMP Criminal Record Check Certificate is the most credible certificate as the criminal record search is based on the name, date of birth and the fingerprints of the applicant. The fingerprints must be submitted in order to obtain this certificate. The applicant can submit the fingerprints at their local police stations or at the authorized fingerprinting agencies in Canada. If you live outside of Canada and you need to obtain the Ottawa RCMP Criminal Record Check Certificate please contact us and we will email you the application package.
The provincially and electronically issued Criminal Record Check certificates are offered by the provincial and municipal police stations. The criminal record searches for these type of certificates are based on the name and date of birth only.
In order to use the Canadian criminal record certificates in foreign countries, they must be properly authenticated and legalized. Moreover, the provincial criminal record check certificates must be notarized first before they can be authenticated by the Department of Foreign Affairs.
Legalization Service Centre facilitates the Criminal Record Check Certificate Authentication and Legalization in Canada. Our main goal is to make sure that the Criminal Record Check Certificate is properly processed according to the Canadian and International laws and regulations and therefore accepted in foreign countries.
Normally, the authentication and legalization service in Canada requires two steps: authentication at the Department of Foreign Affairs in Ottawa and legalization at the Embassy or Consulate in Ottawa. This process makes sure that the Canadian Criminal Record Check Certificate can be legally used in foreign countries, for example to apply for immigration (residency) visas.
We have authenticated and legalized hundreds of Canadian Criminal Record Check Certificates for use abroad. Please contact us if you need your certificate to be used outside of Canada and we will assist you to obtain the Criminal Record Check Certificate and subsequently authenticate and legalize or Apostille it for use outside of Canada.
We can help you to obtain any types of Criminal Record Check Certificates listed above. Contact us for a free consultation.
