  • To apply online, you must have resided in Canada for greater than 1 year and be able to supply your Social Insurance Number (SIN) as it is mandatory for your identification to be verified by Equifax eIDverifier.  We recommend you do not attempt to create an account if you do not have an established and/or active credit history - i.e. no credit card, bank loans, mortgage, etc. as these are required to authenticate your identification using eIDverifier; a secure screening process which provides an online identification method by comparing secured personal information, provided by applicants’ against their credit records. It is not a credit check and does not affect credit scores or ratings. Applicants are asked a series of questions based on their credit records and must be successful in answering before verification can be confirmed. If an applicant is not able to correctly answer their credit record questions, their identification verification will be unsuccessful and applicants will have to attend in person to a Calgary Police Service facility to make application. This does not imply there is anything wrong with your credit record - the system is set up to protect your identity. We are requesting your Social Insurance Number(SIN) as a unique identifier associated and linked to your User Name and account. If you do not wish to provide your SIN, you may visit the Calgary Police Service district office to request your Police Information Check.
