Accu-Metrics provides fingerprinting services to any individual requiring a Police Clearance/Certificate in Canada or abroad for:



Immigration to Canada:


Accu-Metrics is an L-1 Enrollment Services Fingerprinting Location, which is a certified fingerprinting service recognized by Immigration Canada and is able to provide both ink and digital/electronic fingerprinting for immigration related background checks (i.e. landed immigrants, refugee status, etc.).

Persons applying for immigration to Canada through a Canadian Embassy, Consulate or High Commission located outside Canada must provide a police clearance issued by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Ottawa. This Police clearance is obtainable only through the submission of fingerprints. Fingerprints submitted directly to the RCMP by an applicant or his/her representative will be returned, with the results, by the RCMP directly to the Canadian post processing the application. Please note they will not be returned to the client or their representative.

Immigration to other countries:


Accu-Metrics is an L-1 Enrollment Services Fingerprinting Location, which is approved and certified to provide fingerprinting services in Canada for persons applying for Immigrant Visas to the USA.

As well as the FBI clearance, visa applicants living in Canada also require a police clearance certificate issued by the RCMP. Fingerprints for this process can be obtained through Accu-Metrics at the same time of fingerprinting for the FBI clearance.

Other Countries:

Most countries require verification of non-criminality through national police records prior to accepting any immigrant. Fingerprints are required in the majority of these cases.




Persons applying for citizenship to any country, for the most part, are required to provide proof of non-criminality through a national police records check. In most cases, this check is conducted through the submission of fingerprints. Fingerprints may be obtained at Accu-Metrics for citizenship to any country in the world.



The majority of large companies and most government departments require a potential employee to undergo a police clearance check prior to hiring. The RCMP will provide this clearance only on the submission of fingerprints. Please note, a record of the fingerprints is not maintained by the RCMP.

International Adoptions

Persons applying for international adoptions must provide a police clearance of non-criminality prior to completing the adoption proceedings. Accu-Metrics provides this service.

U.S. Waivers/Border Crossings


Persons possessing a criminal record in Canada and/or the USA will not be permitted entry into the USA without pre-authorization by the USINS. This pre-authorization is obtained through the US Waiver process. In these cases, there is a requirement for fingerprints from the FBI as well as the RCMP.

FBI: Effective March 1/1997 only designated fingerprinting services are permitted to fingerprint on the FBI card (FD-258). Accu-Metrics has been designated to provide this service.

RCMP: Accu-Metrics provides fingerprinting services for the RCMP for all valid purposes.



Persons applying for a pardon in Canada must obtain a copy of their criminal record for submission with their application. In some cases, the RCMP is unable to locate the search based on the thumbprints provided; in these cases, a full set of fingerprints must be sent to the RCMP. Fingerprinting for this service can be obtained through Accu-Metrics.
