Default Canadian Police Certificate Required?

I'm trying to work out if I need to get a Canadian police certificate in addition to the UK one I already have.

On my document checklist on my invitation to apply it has the word multiple in brackets next to the police certificate entry. "Police Certificates (Multiple) (required)"

I have never lived in Canada for more than 6 months in a row, but if I add up every visit over the last 2 years, it is more than 6 months.

So will I need to get one and upload that too? I found similar questions, but nothing specifically like this when searching.

Thanks so much

Great thank you. Why do you think it says "Multiple" under that section?

Because it's a standard wording.

If CIC want an RCMP check based on finger prints they'll ask you during processing.

"How to get a police certificate - Canada
Do I need to provide a Police Certificate with my Application for Permanent Residence? No"

How to get a police certificate - Canada

Did you live anywhere else other than the UK for 6+ months or very close to it?

Nope, I've only ever lived in the UK, and had extended trips to BC. I lived there from November 18th to May 1st, so that's nearly 6 months, whilst I secured work.
