Submitting a Police Information Check

Where to go


Submit your police information check application from the comfort of your own home. Click here to start the online application process.

Although walk-in service at the Police Information Check office is available, physical distancing measures will be in place inside, and customers are required to wear a face covering. In order to observe the 2 metre physical distance requirement, the number of people that can be accommodated in our lobby at one time will be limited, therefore applicants coming to the office because it is not possible to apply online will be able to submit their application and pay, after which the results of their completed Police Information Check will be mailed within 7 to 10 business days.

You may complete and print out the application form* before coming to the Police Information Check Section.

*You can also download and print out this non-fillable PDF if the above does not work.

The Police Information Check Section recognizes the importance of receiving a Police Information Check in a timely and convenient manner and recommends that applicants apply online as it the fastest and most convenient method.

Application can be made from the comfort of your home and results will be returned electronically by next business day for those that are ‘clear’, i.e., that have no information to disclose. Please note that ‘On the Spot’ processing service is not offered at this time due to limitations on numbers inside the Police Information Check office and wait times.

Identification Required

Two pieces of identification must be produced. One piece of identification must be a valid government issued identification containing a photo. Examples include:

  • Driver’s Licence or Identification Card

The second piece of identification can be any identification that includes your full name. The Police Information Check Section reserves the right to accept or refuse any forms of identification. Expired identification cannot be accepted.
