Why Are You Required To Have a Criminal Check?

Criminal record checks help employers determine whether or not a prospective employee is the right fit for their organization. Many organizations do not or cannot hire people with criminal records, but hiring managers may accept some applicants with criminal records (depending on the charges and time they occurred).

Criminal record checks may reveal anything from open warrants to pending charges; this alerts hiring managers to the possible existence of records that may disqualify you from employment in their organization. Criminal record checks are conducted through a search of police databases—locally; this may be the Winnipeg Police, while some companies require you to go through the police database offered by the RCMP (RTID System).

FAQs

How Can I Get a Criminal Record Check in Winnipeg?

The process for getting a criminal record check in Winnipeg is as easy as contacting FASTCHECK for an appointment. We offer two types of criminal record checks—police information checks (that don’t require fingerprints) and certified criminal record checks (that do require fingerprints). The type of criminal record check you’ll need will depend on the employer requesting the check.

FASTCHECK can help with almost any criminal record check Winnipeg residents need.- except a Vulnerable Sector search check which must be completed by the Local Police in your area where you live!  (see below)

How Does FASTCHECK Conduct a Criminal Record Check in Winnipeg?

The process for obtaining record checks will depend on your needs. Police criminal record checks (sometimes called a police information check or CPIC) are conducted using your name, date of birth, place of birth, and other vital information. A criminal background check through the RCMP is conducted using this vital information alongside fingerprints. 

 

The applicant’s involvement in these checks is usually limited to providing us with information and, when necessary, fingerprints—from there, all you have to do is wait. 

 

Anyone looking for a Vulnerable Sector Check must follow a different process; a Winnipeg resident would need to contact the Winnipeg Police, while the residents of other cities are required to make a request to their local police department.

What Payment Methods Do You Accept for Criminal Background Checks?

We accept payment by debit, credit card, and electronic transfer (e-transfer).

What Is a Vulnerable Sector Check?

A Vulnerable Sector Check is a type of background check explicitly designed for people who are going to work in a vulnerable sector. A vulnerable sector is any position of trust or authority over vulnerable persons, including children.

The purpose of a Vulnerable Sector Check is to identify whether or not a person has been convicted of sexual offenses. Unlike most background checks, a Vulnerable Sector Record Check will reveal records for which a person has received a record suspension (pardon). This is to ensure that no one working in a vulnerable sector has ever been convicted of a sexual offence—even if they have been pardoned.

Does FASTCHECK Offer Vulnerable Sector Checks?

FASTCHECK cannot conduct a Vulnerable Sector Check. This is because only the Winnipeg Police Service can run a Vulnerable Sector Check for residents of Winnipeg. Residents of other cities must request a Vulnerable Sector Check through their local police department.
