About RSSI – RCMP Criminal Background and Fingerprints Checking in Canada



Reliability Screening Solutions Inc. (RSSI) is accredited by the Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS) branch of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) to provide fingerprint-based Criminal History Checks. CCRTIS has partnered with Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC), Canadian Industrial Security Directorate, to develop a new process for accrediting private companies to take fingerprints for non-criminal purposes. RSSI is one of the first agencies in Canada to successfully complete this new accreditation process.
