About ScreeningCanada™

ScreeningCanada™ is an API-first background screening technology created by the same people who started the industry in Canada over 20 years ago. During that time, the founding members developed in-depth partnerships with police agencies and information bureaus which competitors simply cannot reproduce.  

When the industry started to consolidate, larger players continued with dated phone and email solutions which still exist today. That’s when ScreeningCanada™ was born, a simply better way to perform background screening.
