Types of Criminal Record Checks in Quebec

There are four types of criminal record checks in Quebec. Be sure to discuss with your employer which type you need before making your request.

Name-Based Criminal Record Check (CRC)

This is a basic check for applicants looking to work or volunteer for an employer or organization doing their due diligence and does not involve children or vulnerable adults.

A named-based criminal record check uses your name and birthdate 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 criminal record check 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 are outside of Canada by verifying your identity with a local police service 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.

Like a PIC, a PIC-VS will search the CPIC as well as local police databases to determine if any patterns of behavior exist that may result in harm to a youth or vulnerable adult.

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