Online Background Checks – How Exactly Are They Performed?

February 03 2021

With COVID-19 and stricter social distancing protocols in place, it isn’t as easy to make the trip to your local police station and request for your criminal background check report.


So, if you are applying for a job or an educational program that requires a criminal background check, what should you do?


Well, you should order it online!


The best part is that you don’t even have to wait six-to-eight weeks to get the report. You can get it in under 15 minutes.


Trusted background check providers, like Triton Canada, provide criminal record checks* securely within industry-leading turnaround times.


So, how do online background checks work?


To access your criminal background check, you would have to go to our website and click “Get Started.”


Then you will be required to provide the following details:


-Your full name.

-Your birth date and details.

-Your full contact information.

-Address history for the past 5 years.

-Whether you have ever been convicted of a criminal offence.

-Payment information.


… and that’s all you need to do, from your end.


Once your information is received, it is then run through the RCMP’s Canadian Police Information Centre (CPIC) system.


Additionally, the information is also checked through the National Repository of Criminal Records and can also be run through other national and local databases.


So, the information you receive from us is the same as you would receive from the RCMP or your local police station. With an added benefit – all of this is done securely online.


Once the report is generated, you will receive it. This is an official document that can be presented to your employer, volunteer organization, school, and more.


At Triton, our background check services are available between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m., Monday to Friday, excluding holidays, and due to the pandemic, we have reduced the price of our online RCMP record checks from $59 to $49.95 to save you both money and time.
