12/9/2009 Canadian Police Information Centre Search Suspended


We were just notified that the CIPC Search has been temporarily suspended to all third parties until a Memorandum of Understanding has been executed.  This is evidently in response to “breaches of CPIC policies and related federal legislation. Policies have been breached as a result of certain practices being undertaken by CPIC Agencies that are engaged with Third Party Companies for conducting criminal record name checks.”

See CPIC’s Explanation

All Canadian provincial criminal records searches are still available to EmployeeScreenIQ clients.  We will keep you posted when access to the CPIC Search has been restored.
