You must get written authorization from the employer's business granting you permission to request a search for their records. If you're searching for multiple business names, you must have authorization from each business to be searched.
You must pay a $35 non-refundable search fee for each legal name searched. For example, you would pay a fee of $70 to search two legal names.
You can submit multiple search requests and will receive a separate result for each legal name searched.
You can pay online by credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express). Note: Debit cards (such as Interac or Visa Debit) cannot be used to pay the search fee.
Each legal name searched requires authorization from the business or a representative of the business, signed and dated within 3 months of the date you submit the request.
Submit your request online to reduce processing time. Remember to record your case number.
