Criminal Record Check To Public Canada
Go to your local police department where you reside or last resided in the United States, request that the police conduct a local or state criminal records search and provide you with a document reflecting that there is no history of a criminal record. Local police departments may require your personal appearance in order to conduct the search. You should determine whether the country where you intend to use the records check requires that it be authenticated. For information on that process please see our authentications page.
Criminal Record Check To Public Canada
If you have been convicted in Canada and want to apply for a record suspension (formerly known as a pardon), check with the Parole Board of Canada. If you get a Canadian record suspension, you will no longer be inadmissible.
If you received a record suspension or a discharge for your conviction in another country, check with the visa office that serves the country or region where you live. It will tell you if the pardon is valid in Canada.
Criminal history record information is defined in AS 12.62.900(8) as information that contains: 1) past conviction information, 2) current offender information, and 3) criminal identification information (fingerprints, photographs, and other information or descriptions) that identify a person as having been the subject of a criminal arrest or prosecution.
The Criminal Records and Identification Bureau (R&I) is the designated central repository for criminal history information in the State of Alaska. Criminal justice agencies are required to report criminal justice events to the central repository (i.e., arresting agencies report arrests, prosecutors report charges declined for prosecution, and courts report dispositions to charges that have been filed). The Alaska Public Safety Information Network (APSIN) is the database through which criminal history information is maintained and made available to the public and the criminal justice community.
Other criminal justice agencies such as the Alaska Court System may have public information databases, however, the summary information that is maintained by the Criminal Records and Identification Bureau is confidential, and may only be released as authorized by law.
Criminal history information maintained by the Criminal Records & Identification Bureau is confidential. Alaska laws and regulations govern how information is maintained and disseminated by the central repository of criminal justice information. The Criminal Records and Identification Bureau (R&I) provides state and national background checks to individuals and employers based on strict guidelines provided under AS 12.62.160, 13 AAC 68 and Pub L. 92-544.
As the subject of a criminal history record maintained by the Alaska Central Repository of Criminal History, you are entitled to view or purchase a copy of all criminal justice information in our files. You may request either a name based check or a fingerprint based check. The fee for a name-based check is $20. You must submit a check or money order along with the completed name based form to the Records & Identification Bureau at the address listed on the form or appear in person at any of the locations on our 'walk-in' list. The fee for a fingerprint based background check is $35 (The Criminal Records & Identification Bureau will check Alaska records only). See question: "Where should I go to get criminal history informat?" sub-item 3: "Fingerprint based state background checks" below for additional information on submitting fingerprint cards.
If you are a potential employer/licensing agent of a current or former Alaska resident and wish to obtain an Alaska Criminal History record report, you may request either a fingerprint-based or name-based background check report. The information that is available to you is dependent on the work the potential or current employee will be doing. If the employee/licensee will be working with children or dependent adults, you are entitled to receive information available to an interested person. If you are requesting a criminal history background check pursuant to another state or federal statute, you are entitled to obtain the information authorized to be released under that statute. You must include a copy of the state or federal statute with your request. For all other requests, you will receive a report of information authorized to be received by 'any person'. Complete the Request for Criminal Justice Information form and submit the request, along with payment of the fee, to the address listed on the form.
For state and national background checks, a copy of the subject's state and federal criminal history information is sent to the requesting agency (if they are authorized to received the report directly) and to the subject (if releasable criminal history record information exists). If the agency is not entitled to receive a complete copy of the report the agency will be notified if the subject meets their background qualifications or will be forwarded to a government agency responsible for making licensing or employment determinations
