Frequently Asked Questions

In most cases, scanned fingerprints are widely accepted as being equivalent to (if not better than) the traditional fingerprints using ink impressions on a card. We are an authorized partner for the RCMP to use LiveScan for their criminal record check.

For other background checks, especially those in other countries for immigration / visa purposes, you may be asked to provide rolled (ink) fingerprints.

If you are in Ottawa, we can come to you! Contact us and we can set up an appointment. We also have two convenient Ottawa locations to serve you: one in the West End and one Downtown. We also have partner locations across Canada .

We require ID to make sure you are who you say you are. This comes in the form of two pieces of identification – at least one must be a photo ID (e.g. passport or driver’s license); while the other can be without photo, such as a birth certificate, citizenship card, permanent resident card, status card, etc.

Live scan fingerprinting is a form of digital fingerprinting that takes the impressions of fingertips on a glass plate of a live-scan device. The fingerprints are scanned through the glass and can then be transmitted accordingly.

The fingerprinting process itself is relatively short. Getting your fingerprints done can take anywhere from 10-20 minutes to complete. This goes for both ink-rolled fingerprints and live-scan fingerprinting.

There are a few different fingerprinting services available. Some of which include ink-based or ink-rolled fingerprinting, digital fingerprinting, mobile fingerprinting, and live scan fingerprinting. At Reliability Screening, we’re able to help all of our clients in Ottawa with any of these fingerprinting services depending on what’s needed for their particular situation.

You are able to get fingerprinting services almost anywhere in the world. You may not be able to get your fingerprints taken by the technicians at Reliability Screening, but you can get them taken elsewhere. Whether that is a local police station in your area or an embassy. If you’re in need of a criminal records check with these fingerprints, we will still be able to process this with no problem.

With mobile fingerprinting services, we come to you! Mobile fingerprinting services involve one of our Reliability Screening technicians coming directly to your location to take your fingerprints for you. We handle everything and no commuting is involved for you!
