As per RCMP policy, the requirement of providing your fingerprints is mandatory for positive identification before criminal records are released. Therefore, if you’ve had any criminal history with any policing service, verification of your fingerprints is required before your application can be processed.

To do this, please attend one of the various RCMP accredited fingerprint agencies listed online or in your local telephone book. The Toronto Police Service does not provide fingerprinting services for this purpose.

When you have received confirmation of your identity back from the RCMP, please attach the results to your application and return it to:

  • Toronto Police Service
    Attention: Police Reference Check Program
    40 College Street, 4th Floor
    Toronto, ON M5G 2J3

Further information on the RCMP policy is available on their website at Information regarding the RCMP’s Civil Fingerprinting Services can be found at
