Even though you’re busy studying, remember that it is absolutely essential for you to get your police certificates as soon as possible if you haven’t done so already.
Here are some easy to follow points to consider when organizing your Police Certificates as part of your ICCRC requirements:
6 months: You will need these police certificates from every country where you’ve lived for 6 months or longer since the age of 18.
1 year: The certificates must be issued within the past year.
Fingerprints: Your RCMP Certified Criminal Record Check and all others must include fingerprints.
Original: All submissions must be original certificates
Weeks to Months: Depending on the country, your certificate may take months to reach Canada, so do this asap.
2 months: If you have not received your criminal record check but have applied and paid for it, the ICCRC may allow you to write the Full Skills Exam while waiting for receipt.
Can’t return to country: Some countries require a person to be physically present in order to give a criminal record check. If this is not possible,contact the ICCRC directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Commissionnaires is an efficient way to get your RCMP checks done and usually costs around the same as applying to the RCMP directly. Be sure to visit their website here. https://www.commissionaires.ca/en/national/service/business/criminal-record-check
