How serious is your Criminal Record?

If you are unsure of whether you have a criminal conviction or an arrest record, you can always check with the RCMP by submitting a formal written request. Even if you have never been criminally charged or convicted of an offence, there could be a record that could be stopping you from travelling, hassle-free.


Because the Canadian Border Patrol shares information with the U.S Department of Homeland Security, it is important that you know and understand any and all offences that you have ever committed, prior to travelling.


A non-criminal police report can also show up in the U.S Department of Homeland Security’s database, so it is doubly important to ensure that you contact the RCMP about any possible records under your name, no matter how old those records are. Records on police reports can include a traffic accident involving negligence, domestic abuse, disturbing the peace, and other offences that are non-criminal.

As a General rule, if you have been arrested, fingerprinted or photographed for a criminal offence more than likely you have some form of criminal that requires removal.
