Background Checks - FAQs
1. Company Questions
MyCRC is a direct partner of the Canadian Police Detachments. As such, we’re authorized to conduct criminal record checks through our Police partners using the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database. By law, any third party wishing to access the CPIC must undergo rigorous accreditation, as outlined in Section 19 of the Dissemination of Criminal Record Information policy. Certn and MyCRC have proudly surpassed all required accreditation policies, and has been is contracted with Canadian Police Detachments and Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS).
2. Report Questions
MyCRC shows possible conviction matches by checking the information you provide against the Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) database. If your record has convictions, by law, we are unauthorized to disclose those conviction details due to privacy policies. To view full convictions details, you must conduct a Criminal Records and Judicial Matters Check (CRJMC) at your local police station where a submission of fingerprints will also be required for verification.
No. While our checks are accredited by the Canadian Police Detachments, some companies and individuals may not accept third-party criminal record checks. Unfortunately, if your MyCRC check is not accepted we cannot offer reimbursement.
*We strongly suggest you confirm with your employer that third-party checks are acceptable prior to making your purchase.*
