Police Certificates

Any person who has applied for Canada Immigration (Permanent Resident) Visas and is 18 years of age or older has to make a submission of a Police Certificates from every country they have resided in for 6 months or more since they have turned 18 a part of the security clearance process.

Police Certificates are requested to ensure that with an entrance of an immigrant the Canadian public is still safe from danger.

Police Certificates might go by different names in different countries. They are official documents that indicate any prior criminal activity.

If officials in a particular country refuse to issue a police Certificate, it would be useful if the applicant can get a written statement from them approving that they declined to issue the certificate.

When the Police Certificate must be submitted varies from which category of Canada Immigration under which the applicant is applying and the Canadian Immigration Visa Office to which the application is being submitted. Police Certificates are only valid for a limited period of time.

How someone can obtain a Police Clearance Certificates differs upon the country from which they need a Police Clearance Certificate.

If a Police Certificate is not coming from a certain country, a written statement from police official of the country that can authorize their refusal to issue the certificate may be needed. Citizenship and Immigration Canada may even remove the requirement if a clear obstacle can be established.

A background clearance detects applicants who “are, or have been, involved in espionage, subversion, or terrorism.” It is individual and unattached but also addition to a Police Certificate. The Canadian government conducts the background clearance without the partaking of the applicant.
