About our test
EasyDNA offers DNA immigration testing that is accepted by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). The results of this test are accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC).
For a legal test to be valid, the testing must be performed at an accredited DNA testing laboratory. At EasyDNA we guarantee that your tests will be processed by a highly experienced and properly accredited DNA laboratory. The price for the Legal Paternity Test is $399.
Once the samples have been processed, your results will be ready and emailed to your chosen email address in 3-5 working days.
As mentioned, a DNA sample collection procedure must be rigidly adhered to in order to ensure the result of your test has legal validity. This procedure is known as the Chain of Custody.
Book appointment with a DNA sampler
A proper chain of custody requires sample collection and verification of the people tested by a neutral third party known as a sampler. Typically, people choose a doctor or a nurse to act as the neutral third party sampler. The true identity of every person submitting samples must be confirmed by the sampler. Kindly note that the you might need to pay a sampler’s fee. This fee is not covered in the cost of our legal test.
Prepare all the necessary paper work
On the day on which your appointment for DNA sample collection has been fixed, you will need to take with you:
- A form of legally accepted identification. Acceptable identification documents include passports and ID cards. For children, a birth certificate will be needed as proof of identity. Test participants will also need to take photocopies of their chosen form of identification.
- Clear, passport sized photos are also required. Make sure that not part of your face is covered by any hat or head gear.
If you require legal DNA testing or any of our paternity tests or relationship tests our team will be more than happy to discuss your case.
Identification and DNA sample collection
All DNA samples will be collected directly by the sampler using the sterile mouth swabs inside our kit. Anyone being sampled will at no point by able to come into contact or tamper with the swabs in any way. Your chosen sampler will then proceed to seal the samples and send them off for laboratory testing.
The Sampler will endorse the passport-sized photos you have provided as follows:
- “I [Samplers Name] certify that this is a true likeness of … [person’s name]”
- Samplers SIGNATURE
