Fingerprinting with Digitalex is the fastest service that takes only 15 minutes and costs only $55 after taxes!
How our fingerprinting service works
1 – Come to our offices, with an appointment.
2 – You will need to present two pieces of identification: A primary identification (driver’s license, passport, Canadian citizenship or permanent resident card, Certificate of Indian Status card, student card, firearms license, etc.) and a secondary identification (birth or baptism certificate, hunting or fishing license, hospital card or official immigration documents).
Note that health insurance cards or social insurance cards are not accepted.
3 – Allow 15 minutes for fingerprinting and transmission of data.
What happens once my fingerprints are collected?
Your fingerprint data is securely forwarded to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police for analysis and verification against their database.
In accordance with the RCMP record retention policy, all the fingerprint data sent to them is completely deleted once a security clearance has been issued. No other printing, editing, transmission, or other use of the applicant’s fingerprint images is possible, which protects the confidentiality of the process.
