Additional Information About Criminal Record Checks in Manitoba

Before requesting a criminal record check, discuss with your employer which type they require. Please note that each check is good for only one organization.

First, there are four common types of criminal record checks in Manitoba. Ask your employer which kind they need.

Second, each check you request is only good for one organization.

Name-based Criminal Record Check (CRC)

If you need a basic check to work or volunteer for an organization that doesn’t involve children or vulnerable adults, you’ll probably need a named-based CRC.

A named-based CRC uses names and dates of birth to check the Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) system for a criminal convictions summary and findings of guilt under the Youth Criminal Justice Act within the applicable disclosure period.

Certified Criminal Record Check

A certified CRC uses fingerprints when a name-based CRC can’t definitively confirm a person’s identity. A fingerprint search of the National Repository of Criminal Records is conducted by the RCMP’s Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services (CCRTIS).

Police Information Check (PIC)

A PIC is limited to criminal convictions, outstanding criminal charges and warrants, and other judicial orders. It can be used for employment outside of Canada, and you can apply for a PIC when you’re outside of Canada by verifying your identity with a local police force or the nearest consulate.

Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector (PIC-VS)

A PIC-VS is for employment or volunteer services that involve children or vulnerable adults.

A PIC-VS includes criminal convictions, outstanding criminal charges and warrants, and other judicial orders, in addition to non-convictions and files in which you were a bona fide suspect in a founded substantiated offence. However, it won’t include unsubstantiated allegations.

A PIC-VS can only be done for organizations in Canada. The position itself can be outside of Canada, but the results of the vulnerable sector check must stay within Canada.

Finally, you can’t apply for a PIC-VS outside of Canada.

The nature of the position will determine the type of criminal record check you may need in Manitoba. Here is a quick breakdown with some examples which will give you a general idea but isn’t meant to be authoritative.

Always confirm with your employer before making your request.

Name-based or Certified Criminal Record Check (CRC)

These checks will often suffice for jobs such as:

  • Bank teller
  • Immigration/work permit
  • Labourer/trades/maintenance
  • Landlord/superintendent
  • Office staff
  • Personal (not available in BC)
  • Security guard
  • Server at restaurants/bars
  • Tenant for a rental property

Police Information Check (PIC)

A PIC will satisfy the above CRC-related jobs as well as:

  • Adoption (must be fingerprinted)
  • Attendant in an animal shelter
  • Financial services
  • Landscaper
  • Lawyer/notary
  • Name change
  • Personal (not available in BC)
  • Realtor
  • Retail clerk
  • Students (for school placements)
  • Truck driver

Police Information Check – Vulnerable Sector (PIC-VS)

These are jobs associated with youths and vulnerable adults:

  • Big Brother/Big Sister
  • Caregiver (residential/retirement home)

  • Daycare worker
  • Doctor/dentist/nurse
