Canadian Fingerprinting in Ottawa, ON

Reliability Screening Solutions Inc. offers fingerprinting services from our two convenient locations, or from the convenience of your own place of business. To conduct a certified criminal record check, CCRTIS requires a full set of fingerprints, including both rolled and flat impressions of all ten fingers (if the submission is made via Cardscan.) For our Livescan equipped locations, we no longer require rolled impressions (as per RCMP NIST 178.)

There is no substitute for a Certified Criminal Records Check; it is the only way that you can be sure that the individual you are dealing with is really who they claim to be and that they do not have a criminal record.

National Standards

RCMP CCRTIS maintains the national repository of fingerprint and criminal record information. It is mandated to provide direct operational support to the Canadian law enforcement, criminal justice, and public security communities, as well as international partners such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and Interpol for criminal, civil, and immigration fingerprint purposes.

CCRTIS is the sole provider of criminal record verification for civil and criminal court purposes, as well as the security screening environment for all levels of government and the general public.

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.
