The Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) is used when an individual is applying to volunteer or seek employment to work in a position of trust or authority with vulnerable persons. A serach of the RCMP National Respository of Criminal Records, including Record Suspension (Pardoned), sex offences records is conducted. In some cases, fingerprints may be required for submission to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records to complete the verification.
- In a position of dependence on others, or
Any individual applying for work in a paid or volunteer position where they will be in a position of trust or authority of a vulnerable person may be required to complete a VSC.
*Note* Persons must provide a letter from the organization describing the volunteer duties of the applicant before the VSC volunteer check can be completed.
If RCMP confirms that the applicant has a pardoned sex offence, the information will be forwarded to the Minister of Public Safety to authorize disclosure of all or part of the information contained in the file. When the information is authorized for disclosure by the Minister, the criminal record associated with the applicant’s fingerprints will be returned to DOPS and will include the pardoned sexual offence information.
