Revised Criminal Record Check Process

On April 7 we changed the criminal record check application process. Starting June 1, we will no longer accept record check applications made on the old forms.

You can expect:

  • Easier forms with updated instructions
  • Faster processing of faxed forms
  • Fewer form re-submissions and repayments

Other improvements include:

  • Convenient and secure online payment options
  • Quicker results for most applicants
  • New, dedicated fax line for criminal record checks
  • New employee forms can now be emailed

Processing Times

Employee Applications

Applications for employees where payment is online will take about two weeks. Each request is $28.00. Please see our forms page for more information.

Volunteer or Draw Down Account Applications

Applications for volunteers or by draw down account holders will take 3-4 weeks.

Please review the updated form instructions before submitting your criminal record check consent form.

Note:

Mailed applications and applications where payment is by cheque, money order or credit card form may take 4-6 weeks. There are no changes being made to the current online services.
