If you are fingerprinting for Permanent Residence / Immigration to Canada there is a significant delay in receiving your fingerprint results from the RCMP in Ottawa.  Due to the high volume of request at the RCMP it may take 120 days to receive your results.  Citizenship and Immigration Canada is aware of the delay.  You should however contact them about your application to discuss your submission deadline requirements.

    Thank you for your patience while we work through the large volume of fingerprint request.  We appreciate your business!
