The Ministry of Justice, through their Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP) will conduct a vulnerable sector check at no cost to you through a streamlined online format. Vulnerable sector checks are used by prospective volunteer who are requesting clearance to work with children and/or vulnerable adults. This online process is to determine if you have any record suspensions (formerly known as pardons) for physical, sexual or financial abuse offences. Once you are provided clearance through the CRRP, the criminal record check clearance is good for a period of five (5) consecutive years from the date of issue, unless a criminal offence should occur.
We must inform you that if you happen to have the same combination of gender and date-of-birth as a known sex offender whose record has been suspended, you must then be fingerprinted to confirm your identity. This is a federal RCMP requirement that applies to all Canadians. Most people who are fingerprinted in a vulnerable sector check do not have a sexual offence record. However, fingerprinting is necessary to eliminate the possibility that an offender has changed their name in order to pass a criminal record check.
Therefore, if you happen to have the same combination of gender and date-of-birth as a known sex offender, you will receive a letter from the CRRP informing you that your fingerprints are required. The letter will include forms and instructions on what to do. You will be required to visit your local police agency for fingerprinting. Your fingerprints will then be submitted to the RCMP’s Canadian Criminal Real Time Identification Services to confirm whether or not they match those of a person with a record suspension for a sexual offence. The fee for this process will be your responsibility.
By completing the online application you agree to the terms and conditions for the CRRP Applicant Based Online Service to facilitate a criminal record check and to share the completed criminal record check information with the PHC.
