Police/Vulnerable Sector Checks
Any student who may work with children or vulnerable adults, or potentially have unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults in the ordinary course of placement or an education program, are required to obtain a criminal reference check and vulnerable sector check.
Original Police/Vulnerable Sector Checks must be brought in person to Bailey Robinson in room A2 132.4 for review. No copies will be accepted, including any form of photocopy, scan, image, fax, etc.
***If you have charges on your criminal reference check for which you have not received a pardon, you must disclose the charges to your placement site prior to beginning placement***
Vulnerable Sector Check Letter
Depending on the policies of the police station where you are submitting your application for the check, you may be asked to supply a vulnerable sector check letter. This letter is available from Bailey Robinson in the NARs Office upon request.
You may obtain your vulnerable sector check letter by:
1) Mail: Please provide your current mailing address to which the letter should be mailed. This method is subject to regular mail processing times.
2) Pickup in the NARs Office (room A2 132.4): Available within regular office hours.
Room A2 132.4, Sutherland
Tel: (705) 749-5530 ext. 1860
*Because the letter requires an original signature, we are unable to email or fax copies.

***NOTE for Students who have addresses in the City of TORONTO:
Students trying to get a Police Check via Toronto Regional Police are now waiting approximately 6 weeks to have their application processed!
In light of this wait time information, it is strongly suggested that our students find an option to have their check processed other than utilizing the Toronto Police.
If you can prove you have residency in a city other than Toronto, we would recommend you do so.
