Default Criminal Record Check For Adoption

The adoption agency (which has never dealt with a British applicant before) has requested a criminal record check from the UK as I lived there for five years. I cannot figure out where to order this from in Canada. I called the British High Commission and they directed me to the ACRO site but that seems to be for emigration or visa purposes. I need a standard criminal record check and then an additional check for children which I think is the ICPC (international child protection certificate) but again nothing is clear. Does anyone have any help they could offer regarding what I need and where I can get it?

I think you may need a "Subject Access Request"

I believe you will need an International Child Protection Certificate : https://www.acro.police.uk/icpc/
