How to receive a Police Record Check / Vulnerable Sector Search across Canada by province

 

These are locations where volunteers can receive their Police Record Check with Vulnerable Sector Search (or Check) across Canada by Province

Important Notes:

To be valid: Scouts Canada PRC/VSS must be received specifically for Scouts Canada and must be under 3 months old. 

Non-Profit Proof of Volunteerism Letter: If in your neck of the woods you are asked to go into a police detachment to request your PRC/VSS you may need a letter verifying you are volunteering with us to make the request. This letter can cut or eliminate the cost of a PRC/VSS (if there is a cost, in many areas this is free).  To obtain a copy of this letter, please contact your Group Commissioner, Relationship Manager or Registration@scouts.ca.

Additional Steps / Fingerprinting: In some cases, you may be asked to provide fingerprints in order to move forward with your PRC/VSS the detachment will explain why, as these are case by case. Be prepared to take this step if asked to by your local detachment.
