The OPP recognizes long wait times impact the public within the OPP's jurisdiction and wish to highlight an additional possible option for attaining record checks:

Alternative Service Providers:

Did you know that a third party vendor can complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) or a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check for anyone in Canada for a fee?

These third party vendors may be able to offer a reduced timeline. Please speak to your employer/agency to ascertain if this option would be acceptable, noting there is a cost for this service. The OPP does not charge for checks for volunteer purposes, but should your volunteer check be urgent, the third party vendor check may be a time sensitive option.

The OPP does not endorse or promote the third party check, and a private check may not meet the organization's requirements. A list of third party vendors can be obtained with a web-based search in your area by querying "criminal record checks" through a search engine.

The OPP understands the change in process may cause inconvenience, however it is confident that new measures taken to improve processing times will lead to shorter wait times for the public.
