What is Canada Identity Verification?
Canada Identity Verification is a digital online candidate verification service that works to verify a candidate’s identification documents and likeness during the background check process. Identity verification is required for all Canadian basic criminal checks.
At the end of each background check application, candidates working in Canada will be guided through this verification process via our third-party provider, Yoti. Yoti is a trusted vendor approved by Canada that securely verifies identification documents and likenesses of individuals. This Yoti process is also available in the French language.
What happens if a candidate’s Canadian digital identity verification is unsuccessful?
If a candidate’s Canadian digital identity verification is unsuccessful, the candidate will be asked to upload their identification and video documentation manually.
