Criminal Background Checks
Getting a complete picture of a candidate’s criminal history is often more complex than people think. At Sterling Backcheck, we make it easy for you to make fast, more accurate, and safer hiring decisions through a combination of robust services, solutions, and technology that allows you to:
Identity Verification is designed to help you mitigate risk through a simple process where candidates verify that the information they provided about themselves, such as their name and date of birth, is indeed their own. This allows employers to verify that candidates are in fact who they claim to be. In the transportation industry, for example, your drivers may need to verify their identities from remote locations. In any situation where remote verification is needed, both accuracy and reliable technology play critical roles.
Education and Employment Verification
Make sure you know who you’re hiring with the support of industry-leading pre-employment verifications backed by a powerful fulfillment engine. Sterling Backcheck’s verification services deliver fast, detailed confirmations of a candidate’s educational background, job history, and other credentials so you can be confident in every new hire.
Reference Checks are a valuable tool for screening candidates but can be time-consuming and difficult for hiring managers.
Beyond telephone interviews, Sterling Backcheck also offers online reference interviews. Fast and economical, these online questionnaires can also be complemented by telephone follow-up to validate and verify answers. Furthermore, we can customize the references to better serve your organization.
Driver Abstracts and Driver License Verifications
Protect your people and property with driver abstract checks, which help get new hires on the job quickly while maintaining safety and compliance standards. Sterling Backcheck provides driver abstracts on thousands of Canadians each year. Established direct relationships with relevant provincial agencies complement our processes and technology that can be relied upon to deliver fast, accurate, and detailed results.

Sterling has partnered with Fama to offer clients the ability to screen potential and current employees using publicly available online information. Our solution helps organizations build great cultures by identifying traits that align with an organization’s values, while also enhancing ethical decision-making and compliance by proactively recognizing risk-creating behaviours such as bigotry, racism, and sexism.
