Youth Records

Disclosure of Youth Records

In accordance with the Youth Criminal Justice Act (YCJA), youth records will only be released to federal, provincial or municipal government agencies. Record checks for young persons won't be conducted for any other purpose. To require applicants to apply and pay for a product when no results will be released is not in the best interest of the applicant, community or the police service.

If a youth is requesting a copy of their own record for personal reasons, they will be required to submit fingerprints electronically through Real Time Identification. It will provide the youth with a RCMP report based on a fingerprint search and will contain a copy of the National Repository data holding as it exists, but without fingerprint images. It won't have the official RCMP embossment seal and will be in a plain format only.
