Frequently Asked Questions

In short, the CPIC check uses your name and date of birth to see whether you have a criminal record; whereas the RCMP Certified Criminal Background Check uses fingerprints.

The RCMP is more thorough and effective, and in some cases (e.g. immigration) is the required method. The CPIC check, however, is faster, and it is acceptable in many cases. If you are not sure which you require, we would be happy to discuss this further with you.

CPIC stands for the Canadian Police Information Centre database. Reliability Screening has partnered with the Cobourg Police service to have access to the CPIC database. We use your name and date of birth to check against the database for a match.

The CPIC check is a relatively fast process and, especially for those applying from outside Canada who do not require a fingerprint-based background check, provides a smooth experience.

It is possible that your name and date of birth could be shared by someone else – especially true for common names. If that individual has a criminal record, the CPIC check will come back with an unacceptable match. It doesn’t mean that you have a criminal record; however, in such cases, we would then have to run a fingerprint-based background check – the RCMP Certified Criminal Background Check – which could delay your case.

Also, as the CPIC is not a fingerprint-based criminal background check, it is not accepted for most immigration or travel visa authorities, nor is it the preferred method for many employment screenings. If you are not sure which is right, contact us to find out more.
