PROCESSING TIMES

How long will it take for the RCMP to process your fingerprints and mail the results of the background check to your designated address?  The results are received by ordinary mail at your designated address usually:

  • in 2 to 3 weeks since being fingerprinted AND you do NOT have a criminal record, OR
  • in 6 to 8 weeks since being fingerprinted AND you DO have a criminal record.

Processing times can fluctuate.  We have no control over processing times once your fingerprints have been submitted to the RCMP.  If you have a criminal record and would like to inquire into a Canadian Pardon (Record Suspension) or U.S. Travel Waiver, please contact our office at 403-229-2774.
