Were you hired through an agency? I was and only had to get the report from the RCMP. You will get fingerprinted when you get here. The rules change often here so I would get in touch with either the agency who hired you or the HR dept. of the company who offered you the job. If you need to ask some more questions, feel free to e-mail me at email@example.com . I just received my RP on thursday, so I fresh from going through the process.

my husband is working for QP and was requested this document by the HR dept but after getting it made, signed and stamped by half a dozen"authorities" the HR dept didnt receive it saying that the rules have changed and QP employees are exempt.
The notary public attach a singed notary statment with the original document. He/she won't actually sign and stamp the original document.
