New Criminal Record check process
FSRA is changing its licensing processes for background criminal checks to ensure the processes remain up to date. Criminal record checks are part of FSRA’s rigorous licence qualification process to protect consumers by ensuring only suitable individuals sell or offer financial products and services in Ontario.
FSRA now requires licensees and applicants to complete their criminal record checks through our approved vendor, Triton Canada (Triton). To complete a name change, date of birth correction, or gender change, you must complete a background check through Triton’s website.
Once completed, you will need to return and complete your application form, along with uploading a copy of your Triton Invoice and any other supporting documents to the Online Services Portal.
A fee of $19.15 applies for Triton’s service, and the background check is valid for 90 days.
Please monitor your email frequently for any information requests from FSRA. If you have any further questions about the new background check process, please contact us.
Government-issued identification includes:
- birth certificate
- driver’s licence
