The Canadian Criminal Record Check (CCRC) searches the Criminal Name Index of CPIC to discover criminal records consisting of one or more criminal convictions in the National Repository, which is managed by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police.
Individuals who have a criminal record will have been fingerprinted in relation to indictable offences they were charged with and for which a conviction was subsequently rendered by the courts. Convictions will remain on their record unless they apply for, and obtain, a record suspension (formerly known as a pardon).
