    As an accredited agent of the RCMP-Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS), C5ID can offer electronic live-scan fingerprinting services at specific locations in Canada for the following reasons:

    • US Waivers
    • Foreign Travel
    • International Adoptions
    • Other personal reason
    • Employment
    • Citizenship
    • Immigration
    • Pardons

    Fingerprints will arrive at the RCMP database the same day they are captured and if no record is found, the results are returned within 72 hours directly from RCMP to you.

  • 03 CARD-SCAN

    As of July 2014, the RCMP no longer accepts inked fingerprints on a paper fingerprint form. Inked fingerprints now need to be converted to electronic format before they arrive at the RCMP.

    C5ID has the ability to convert your inked fingerprints into electronic format via our state of the art CARD-SCAN process. Like Live-Scanned fingerprints, results are returned to you within 72 hours if no record exists.
