Fingerprinting is an important step in preparing an application for a pardon or a waiver. Fingerprints are required to obtain a copy of your certified criminal record. We employ an international network of organizations that provide digital scans of your fingerprints. Digital fingerprinting ensures that your records are processed more quickly and reliably. We will arrange for your fingerprints to be scanned electronically at a convenient location to you and submitted directly to RCMP Ottawa (CPIC) for expedited results. Alternatively, you can have your fingerprints taken at your local police station and forward them to us.
