Step 2 – Get your local police records check
You must get a local police records check for:
- The city or town where you live now (your current address); AND
- For each city or town where you lived during the last 5 years (if you lived in that place for 3 months or more).
How to get a local police records check
Fill in all questions on page 1 of the Local Police Records Check Form.
Tip: Photocopy it for each local police service you contact.
Contact the local police service for the address where you live now. If you have lived in different places during the last 5 years, you must contact the police service for each place. If you are not sure who to contact, ask your local police service.
Show your criminal record to each local police service and ask them to fill in the section on the Local Police Records Check Form called “For Police Use Only” (page 2).
You will need to show them a current photo ID and a second piece of ID.
Tip: Contact the local police service in advance to find out the types of ID they accept.
The Parole Board of Canada will return your application if your Local Police Records Check Form does not include the following information:
All information required in the For Police Use Only section on page 2;
Signature and date stamp of the local police service;
Local police service official seal or stamp.
