What is it?
This search provides applicant criminal history information located in Canada. The information may include: description of offense, year of conviction, location of offense, and penalty.
Please note: If the search comes back as 'incomplete' your applicant will need to go to their local police station to have their fingerprints taken in order to obtain a criminal record report. Your applicant will then need to provide the criminal record report to you. Verified First does not receive a copy of the results, so it is the candidate's responsibility to make sure the results get to you.
If you need the report updated after you've received the results from the applicant, you can provide a copy of the results to our Client Services team and we will update the report.
