Checkr expands global footprint and grows capabilities in Canada.

Checkr, the leading technology company powering the future of work, announced today it has acquired ModoHR, a Canadian-based background check company.

ModoHR provides customers with scalable and compliant solutions to conduct accurate background checks through their leading ScreeningCanada™ platform. The ScreeningCanada.ca platform is a comprehensive and dynamic application offering customers a single, unified workflow for requesting and monitoring results while preserving the privacy and security of information passed through the platform.

Specifically, the acquisition will allow Checkr clients greater access to Canadian background check data. Canadian clients will continue to experience the excellent customer service provided by the ModoHR team and all data will continue to be stored in Canada.

“The acquisition of ModoHR is a strategic step toward international expansion for us,” said Daniel Yanisse, CEO of Checkr. “I am excited to bring the ModoHR team to Checkr and take our platform leadership, candidate experience, customer-first mindset and most importantly our commitment to build a fairer future to customers around the world.”

“The combination of Checkr and ModoHR distinguishes us as an industry leader and we are thrilled to bring our Canadian expertise to such an innovative company.” said Ken Cahoon, President and CEO of ModoHR. “This transaction allows ModoHR clients greater access to resources and integrations through a single, unified platform. Together, we can offer more technology innovation and access to background checking services throughout North America and globally.”
