A Police Clearance Certificate (PCC) in Canada is an official document issued by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police (RCMP) or local police authorities. It confirms that an individual has no criminal convictions or pending charges within the country. This certificate is often required for immigration, employment, and other purposes where a background check is necessary. Obtaining a PCC involves applying to the local police station and providing necessary identification and fingerprint information. It serves as a crucial tool in ensuring safety and security in various settings.
