The First 3 Steps

  1. You receive paperwork (such as a DNA letter) from IRCC or other agency that requests DNA evidence of relationship between the sponsor/applicant and family member
  2. Contact DDC by telephone to initiate DNA test and let our experts guide you through the process. We’ll cover everything you need to know and answer your questions
  3. Send DDC all required paperwork and contact information. We’ll take a deposit to get the ball rolling, and then go to work to get samples collected

Results are completely confidential, and your private genetic information is never shared with or sold to outside parties. See our privacy policy here.

More about this Test

Q: What are the DNA-collection requirements for the party in Canada?

A: The sponsor in Canada must have 2 forms of ID at the time of the appointment. One must be a government-issued photo ID and the other can be a medical card. They must also have a passport photo. If any of these items are missing, a recollection appointment will need to be scheduled.


Q: What is the process for getting a DNA kit mailed to the High Commission for Canadian immigration?

A: The sponsor in Canada must receive a request from the High Commission of Canada office to conduct a DNA test, with the paperwork listing all tested parties. The sponsor must tell us where the applicant resides. Once we have received this paperwork and payment is made, we contact the High Commission office in that country (if one is available) to receive permission to send a collection kit. We must explain that DDC is the chosen laboratory to perform the DNA test and list the applicant’s name and contact information. Once we receive approval, we then ship a kit for collection. The High Commission office in that country will contact the applicant for an appointment. The officials in the other country do not advise DDC of the date and time for DNA collection there, and this part of the process can take weeks to months.
