How quickly would I get my Police Clearance?

Processing times for fingerprint-based background checks are determined by the RCMP.  Typically, transactions where no criminal record is present are completed in 3 business days and then mailed out to the requested address. If a criminal record is present, the processing may take longer. Please consult the RCMP’s website for details on processing times.

*Please note that the RCMP is actually experiencing an unusual delay to regular processing times.
