IRCC Program Delivery Updates: Express Entry – New Police Certificate Requirements

Date: March 19, 2018

The upfront requirements for police certificates have changed for permanent residence applications under the Express Entry system.

As of February 27, 2018, police certificates are required for any country or territory, other than Canada, where the applicant has spent 6 months or more in a row within the last 10 years since the age of 18.

Applications for permanent residence programs subject to the Express Entry completeness check will be assessed according to the revised police certificate requirements.
