Why You Should Be Obtaining a Criminal Background Check, Every Time!

3.8 million Canadians have criminal records. While a criminal record doesn’t necessarily mean you shouldn’t consider a candidate, you want someone you know and trust as a part of your team. A criminal background check shows a person’s convictions, arrest warrants, outstanding charges, and other criminal records. Triton’s criminal background checks use data from the RCMP to screen the criminal records of potential candidates. They’re easy to conduct and save time with our industry-leading turnaround times.
