  • If you are a resident of Gatineau-Hull and will be volunteering/working/attending school in Ottawa, you may apply for a Record Check with the Ottawa Police Service. A surcharge of $42 applies to all Record Checks requested by applicants who are neither permanent nor temporary residents of the City of Ottawa (only Gatineau-Hull residents are eligible). This surcharge will ensure that Ottawa taxpayers do not subsidize clients who travel from either Gatineau-Hull jurisdictions to have their Record Checks performed by the OPS rather than by their local police service. The non-resident surcharge does not apply to providing copies of police reports.
  • If you are a resident of another jurisdiction outside of Ottawa/Gatineau-Hull, you must apply for your Record Check with your Local Police Service. You are not eligible to apply for a Record Check from the Ottawa Police Service.
  • Residency confirmation is required. If you are unable to provide proof of residency, you may be charged the 'Non-Resident' surcharge (Ottawa/Gatineau-Hull residents).
