Online Application Tips

  • The online system can be unavailable at times. If system error occurs, please try again at another time. It might take a few attempts to be successful if your identity cannot be readily confirmed during the online application.

  • Please ensure you are using your full legal name that matches your identification and ensure that the browser you are using is compatible.

  • The College is not involved directly with the application process and/or the actual criminal record check itself.

Online application is the preferred and the fastest method to request a CRC Check.

*If you are asked to complete a manual identification verification process during your online application with CRRP, then a paper form is to be submitted to the College (ie Organization). Paper form submission procedure is available at the bottom of this page.

IMPORTANT NOTE:

  • The criminal record check by the Criminal Records Review Program must be submitted through the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General. Information check conducted by the local police department or RCMP does not satisfy this mandatory provincial requirement for people working with children and vulnerable adults or who have unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults.

  • Applicant is required to provide the criminal record check verification authorization to the CRRP. Applicants may be contacted by the CRRP through email to submit their fingerprints. Click here for details.

  • It is the responsibility of the applicant to follow up on his/her CRC application by contacting CRRP.

  • Please allow sufficient time for your CRC application to be processed by CRRP. This can take 3 months or more if additional verification procedure is required.

If you have any questions ( Such as the application process, the status of your CRC application, your CRC file/service number), please contact the Criminal Record Review Program (CRRP):
