When Impact Pardons Plus (IPP) does a Criminal Background Check it is sometimes called by a different name. Names like: ‘Background Check’, ‘CPIC’ –(pronounced ‘See-pick’), ‘Criminal Name Check’ a ‘Criminal Information Request’, ‘Criminal Record Request’, ‘Criminal Record Check’, ‘Police Check’  and other names. For our clients, our state of the art software programme sends the completed CPIC request via secure transmission to our affiliated police agency here in Ontario for quick and reliable processing.

From our senior affiliate in Ottawa – Reliability Screening Solutions, Inc., we get the following information.

Criminal Background Checks

To conduct a Police Records Check (PRC), the PRC request is sent via secure line to the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) database, operated by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) in Ottawa. The database is searched for relevant criminal record information and/or the existence of a CPIC record. The CPIC database is a compilation of police information and court decisions. Information collected in the CPIC database includes individuals who:

  • have a criminal record for any Criminal Code or other Federal Statute offense and/or
  • have been judged not criminally responsible for an offense because of mental disorder and/or
  • have federal and/or provincial charges pending and/or
  • are on probation or subject to a Prohibition Order.

If the request is for a volunteer position, the relevant organization must have your written permission to request a PRC. Since 2001, as a result of amendments to the Criminal Records Act, criminal records of pardoned sex offenders can be made available to organizations that work with vulnerable people. Your written consent is required  to search the CPIC database for pardoned sexual offenses. Depending on the jurisdiction, we also work with local police agencies to access their own databases, which contain information about every complaint they receive. Examples of complaints include:

  • local disturbances
  • offenses contrary to provincial statutes (such as traffic violations or liquor-related violations)
  • abuse of children
  • allegations of offenses where charges were not laid.

Impact Pardons Plus will do CPIC checks for adoption, immigration, foreign travel or cross border work. Various companies may require a CPIC be done for safety reasons within their work environment. Their people may need to be bonded as they are required to work at a secure site or to prevent employee theft. As a CPIC is a ‘point in time’ check, some employers may have their employees checked each year.

Employers, have you had occassion to ask your employees to get a CPIC done and 7 or 10 days later you're still waiting for results because some employees haven't yet gone to the police station to submit their application? Why not try our 'Scan and Send' Name Check Service. IPP goes on site or the employee drops by our Kingston, ON office. Either way, the completed applications begin coming back within 2 to 3 hours. Call IPP; we can help.
