All applicants, including former members reinstating their general registration, are required to submit a criminal record check* conducted no more than one year before applying to the College. The process for obtaining a criminal record check is different for applicants residing in Canada and applicants residing outside of Canada at the time of application. Applicants who have a criminal record may be required to provide additional documentation.
*A criminal record check is a statement that you do or do not have a criminal record. Depending on your country or territory, it may be called a police certificate, police clearance certificate, a good conduct certificate, a judicial record extract or another name. If you do not currently reside in Canada, please confirm with the College before your arrival if you plan to submit these types of documents. If your criminal record check is in a language other than English, send the criminal record check along with a translation from a certified translator. The College will accept notarized criminal record checks submitted for immigration to Canada if the check was conducted no more than one year before applying to the College.
If you have any questions, please feel welcome to contact the College by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 780.487.6130 or 1.800.282.2165.
