Fingerprints Card Scanning

If the applicant is living outside of Canada or an area that digital fingerprinting is not available, Edmonton Fingerprinting Services is accredited by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to digitize ink fingerprints and then submit to the RCMP electronically.

The process is straight forward and secure. The applicant can get fingerprints taken by the local police agency, then send us the original fingerprint form along with other required documents, we will then digitize the paper fingerprints (ink & roll, or livescan print) with our advanced and certified card scan technology and equipment to submit the application to the RCMP’s Canadian Criminal Real Time Information System (CCRTIS) via secured connection. CCRTIS will compare the fingerprint application against the RCMP’s criminal record database and issue a Certified Criminal Record Check certificate, and the certificate will be sent by the RCMP to the applicant or a third party directly.
