Credit check is required if you want to sign up with postpaid/monthly plan.
They can do this at a store, so don't forget to bring proper ID. ( credit card, Canadian Driver's license, SIN ...)

It doesn't take long for the check, just another 10 minutes or so to review the phone/plan combination (or bringing in your own), the agreement after it finishes printing, proration, making a test call, invoice in the POS system, etc.
