Paperless Consent

Here’s what eConsent is doing for BackCheck customers!


Faster turnaround times across all services


When applicants fill out eConsent from home, we find they take the time to provide thorough information; in combination with mandatory fields, we get the right information the first time from the candidate, thereby minimizing delays to start a check and the need to go back to you for additional information.


Faster Reference Checks

By giving references the option to interact with us online or by telephone, we are seeing reference turnaround time drop from 3-5 days down to about 36 hours.



How does it work?

eConsent creates an online document replicating our paper consent forms which contain your candidate’s information.



Login to BackCheck’s secure website to initiate a background check. Simply provide BackCheck with basic information about your candidate (their name and email address) and select a service package.

Your candidate receives an email invitation to complete their online consent form. From anywhere, your candidate can complete their consent forms.

ID Verification is required for Canadian Criminal Record Checks. You can select from 3 Options – Electronic ID Verification, Canada Post can verify ID and send it to us, or your Hiring Manager can do so.
