Time to Receive Your Certificate
The processing times required to receive your RCMP police Certificate are based on the RCMP, not the agency taking your fingerprints.
Current processing times are as follows:
- If you’re fingerprints match information on file the processing time takes up to 120 days.
- If you’re fingerprints DO NOT match information on file the processing time takes only 3 days.
A match means that some form of criminal record information is attached to your name and fingerprints file.
What is an RCMP Police Certificate?
If you do not have a criminal record your RCMP police certificate is simply a letter from the RCMP indicating that no criminal record exists.
If you do have a criminal record your RCMP police certificate will be a letter with a list of all your criminal charges that are on file.
If you have a received a pardon and your criminal record has been sealed your police report will be identical to someone who has no criminal record.
