The approximate RCMP processing of the certified criminal record request is 120 days and depends on the amount of the applications in the system. Our fingerprinting facility is RCMP accredited to submit fingerprints electronically directly to the treatment center in Ottawa. We have the most technically advanced equipment available and the processing time are the shortest possible.

The processing time of the Pardon application by The Pardon Resource Center depends on many factors, such as, the nature of the infraction, the court handling the case, if a search of the archives would be necessary, on the amount of application in queue at the local police, and if additional information and treatment would be required. The processing time by our center can be advanced for the Priority Package.

The advantage of using our services is that all of the necessary information can be obtained in one appointment, and any future correspondence with you if necessary can be made via phone and mail. In other words, you will need to visit our offices only once to take fingerprints and to sign documents and we will take of the rest.
