How to obtain a police certificate
How and where do I obtain one?
You should:
  • get a cover letter and fingerprint card from the FBI. You can download these from the FBI website in the Related Links section at the bottom of the page or write to the address below and have them mailed to you.
  • have fingerprints taken. You can have this done by:
    • a local police department or
    • a private fingerprinting business.
(When you have your fingerprints taken, you will need photo identification.)
  • include a Certified cheque or money order for the fees, payable to the U.S. Treasury
  • mail the letter, fingerprints and fee payment to:
FBI, Criminal Justice Information Services Division
Attention: SCU, Mod D-2
1000 Custer Hollow Road
Clarksburg, West Virginia 26306
Processing times are normally between 16 and 18 weeks. The FBI will send you a letter with the results of their record check. That letter will be your police certificate. You should send the letter and any attached documents to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada office processing your file. All police certificates must be originals. Photocopies will not be accepted by our office.
For more detailed information, visit the FBI website in the Related Links section at the bottom of the page.
