Hi everyone, I’m looking to move to Taiwan this August to teach English in a cram school/buxiban. I have a question regarding the new 2017 law requiring a “certificate of good conduct” when starting as a cram school teacher. I know that in the U.S., the document required involves an FBI certification with fingerprinting and a long processing time.
So my question is: what is the Canadian equivalent? Would a criminal background check from my local police department (which uses the RCMP Canada-wide database) be sufficient? Or do I need to get a certified criminal record check through the RCMP, which requires fingerprinting and a significantly longer wait time.
I am asking because I am worried about the time-frame. Have any other Canadians dealt with this new law, and if so, do you have any insights? Help is very much appreciated!
