Criminal record checks for volunteers working with children and vulnerable people are available free of charge from the BC Ministry of Justice (accessible online).
The Ministry also provides a reduced fee (currently $28) for criminal record checks related to employment.
The online provincial ministry service is available for organizations registered with the ministry. People applying for the criminal record check must use a code provided by the registered organization.
City Council recognizes the immense contribution of volunteers in Campbell River – and the City and Volunteer Campbell River are working together to try to improve access to free criminal record checks for volunteers in our community.
Each week, the Campbell River RCMP detachment receives an average of 12 employment and 22 volunteer applications for police information checks.
