Record checks


Criminal Record Check means a search of the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records to determine if there are any criminal convictions related to you.  Local police records are also searched for
convictions which have not been added to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records.  There are two types of Checks:

  • Name-based Criminal Record Checks are used for persons not working with the vulnerable; however, if the person check reveals a possible criminal record the only way this can be confirmed is through fingerprinting.

A search based on your name and date of birth of active criminal files in the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records.  This is used to determine if you have a possible criminal record.

  • Fingerprint-based Criminal Record Checks are used for persons working with the vulnerable sector or those who need their criminal records confirmed by fingerprints.

A search based on your fingerprints of the RCMP’s National Repository of Criminal Records. This will produce a document that includes criminal record information based on your fingerprints.


Vulnerable Sector Check means a search of the RCMP National Repository Criminal Records, record suspension sex offender records, the CPIC databanks, all available police records systems and court
records.  A Vulnerable Sector check may be requested if you will be working or volunteering in a position of trust.

A Vulnerable Sector Check is designed to protect vulnerable Canadians from dangerous offenders by uncovering criminal records and/or pardoned sexual offence convictions.  These results help determine
if you are suitable to work in a position where you will be in close contact with vulnerable people; therefore, not all paid or volunteer positions require this type of check.  Your employer or organization should
tell you what type of check you will need.

If your name, gender and date of birth are matched to pardoned sex offender record, you will be asked to provide fingerprints to confirms our identity.  This is not an accusation of criminality
Prints are used to confirm your identity only and are destroyed after 90 days.

Position of Trust: means a paid or volunteer position dealing with vulnerable people.

Vulnerable People: may include, youth, elderly, people with physical, developmental, emotional, social, or other disabilities, people who are addicted or dependent on addictive substances, and victims
of a crime or an accident.

Adverse Information: means an occurrence involving police where you have been deemed “charged” or “suspect chargeable” in a complaint relating to a provincial or federal offence, regardless of
whether you were acquitted or convicted; therefore, if you have any adverse interaction with the police, your Vulnerable Sector Check result will indicate so.  You may request the Tsuut’ina Nation Police
Service to provide you with a letter to explanation on your adverse information.
