Welcome to Impact Pardons
Digital fingerprinting – sometimes called Realtime ID (RTID) or Live Scan, is the accepted methodology and the only way to get fingerprints to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP). It is fast, clean and here at Impact Pardons, we use state-of-the-art capture technology called KOJAK. Most digital fingerprints are on their way to the RCMP within 2 minutes of the client walking through our doors.
We can help with fingerprinting for:
- Contract Security Program
- Residency & Citizenship
- Visa’s & Border Crossing
- Foreign Travel & Work
- Privacy Act Requests
- Volunteer Employment
- Name Changes
About Impact Pardons
We opened our doors as Impact Pardons in October, 2012, but we began fingerprinting in 1999.
Having a keen desire to help people, it was soon discovered most people being fingerprinted didn’t know how their fingerprints being taken would fit with their employers’ request that they, ‘… needed…’, the employee’s prints. While capturing the fingerprints (in 1999), it was explained the applicant would take the paper prints back to the employer who would then mail the prints to the RCMP who would complete the search, print out the result (called a ‘certificate’), mail the certificate back to the employer who would then mail the certificate and the paperwork to the government office that had initially requested the employer get the employee cleared. The ink and roll paper process generally took 17 to 22 weeks.
In May, 2005, the RCMP started accepting digital fingerprints. The employee would come in for fingerprinting and say, “My boss needs my prints”. While fingerprinting the employee, it was explained that it was the RCMP who needed the prints; the boss is actually looking for the result (certificate). The process at that time generally took 5 to 7 weeks.
In early February, 2017, the Contract Security Program (CSP) launched for Federal Government employment. The employee now says, “I need to be fingerprinted for government work’, and shows CSP paperwork. Four taps on the KOJAK fingerprint reader: fingerprints done. File sent via VPN to RCMP. Within 50 seconds the certificate is created and sent to the appropriate government office. Process confirmation: 3 seconds. Total time: 3 to 4 minutes. Done.
People from all walks of life make up our client database because we offer many services: pardons, US waivers, police background checks (CPIC), passport photos and we fingerprint for Contract Security Program, citizenship, immigration, employment, name changes, adoptions, etc.
