Vulnerable Sector Checks for Volunteers

posted Sep 4, 2019, 8:32 AM by St. Michael ‎(Corkery)‎ School

Volunteers working with students in the OCSB must complete a vulnerable sector check. This includes parents and other volunteers taking part in field trips, those working with students in schools, and those volunteering at events where they may be in isolation with students even for a brief period of time (eg., meeting in a small area to distribute food/beverages).

Please note that there are three types of Criminal Record Checks; Level 1: Criminal Record Check (CRC) Level 2: Criminal Record Check and Judicial Matters Check (CRJM) Level 3: Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) Anyone over 18 who wishes to take part in a volunteer opportunity in a school must complete a Level 3 Vulnerable Sector Check.
Information about applying for the Vulnerable Sector Check can be found at: https://www.ottawapolice.ca/en/about-us/Level-3---Vulnerable-Sector-Check.aspx
Below is an information package about volunteering from the School Board and two forms that should be included with your Vulnerable Sector Check application.

There will be a $10 fee until the end of December for the Vulnerable Sector Check. In 2020, the fee will be $20.
Please bring your completed VSC and your receipt to the school and we will reimburse you and create a database of approved volunteers. Thank you for taking the time to have this completed as we will always need volunteers!
