So you require a background check! Our priority is to ensure that you get this done as quickly and as convenient as possible. The first step is to discuss with your employer or organization which check is appropriate relative to the work you will be doing. We have created the following chart as a guideline to help you determine which check is appropriate for you.

Police Criminal Record Check (PCRC) EMPLOYMENT  $49.95 + applicable tax VOLUNTEER  $19.95 + applicable tax

This check is intended for applicants who are involved as a volunteer, employee or in any situation where a basic PCRC is requested (e.g., retail or immigration).

Police Information Check (PIC) EMPLOYMENT  $49.95 + applicable tax VOLUNTEER  $19.95 + applicable tax

A collection of offence information, including convictions, outstanding warrants, charges and judicial orders available from a local police agency's records management system and other systems/records where authorized.

This check is intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with agencies who require a criminal record check. The agency has determined that a search of pardoned sex offenders database is NOT required (i.e., border crossing or visa) therefore this check is NOT intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with vulnerable persons.

Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVS) EMPLOYMENT  $49.95 + applicable tax VOLUNTEER  $19.95 + applicable tax

This check is restricted to applicants seeking employment and/or volunteering in a position of authority or trust relative to vulnerable persons in Canada only. It is a collection of offence information, including convictions, outstanding warrants, charges and judicial orders available from a local police agency's records management system and other systems/records where authorized. This check will include sexual offence convictions for which the individual has received a record suspension (pardon) where authorized by the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness. Non-conviction information shall be released only when it meets the Exceptional Disclosure Assessment.
