Thanks Prof1 for the moral support. Good thing I don't have a criminal record.
After you submitted your fingerprints, did CIC requested for another documents or the next letter was invitation for Written Exam? Did you waited about 9 months for the next step?
Just curious about your friend who failed to stop on an accident, did he appeared to a court hearing and/or locked in jail cell? Or got convicted then just paid the fine and released?
Regarding my case, I was requested to do the fingerprint on May, which I did the same day I received the fingerprint. Then, emailed the RCPM and was told that they have processed and sent the results to CIC the same exact date they received it.
Then I emailed CIC and was told after a month that they have received my fingerprint results from the RCMP and will contact me in due course for the next step. I am still waiting for the next step.
Regarding my friend, he went back to the police station the day day after he made the accident voluntarily. When they asked him about the reason of fleeing the scene, he said he got scared.
They did not put him in jail. However, he was billed out, fingerprinted, sent to court, fined for $1500, got his license suspended for one year, and got a summary criminal offence.
This criminal record showed on his fingerprint results and CIC asked him to submit a certificate from the court where he was charged to check the following information:
The offence was indictable or summary
If it is over parmently or can be activated.
If he paid the fine already
If there was any other related charges to that case pending
He got that certificate from court and sent it to CIC, and is now waiting for their response.
