Volunteering

If you are planning to volunteer in your child’s classroom, help out on field trips, volunteer in our school
for special events, you MUST obtain criminal record check clearance.

The Ministry of Justice regulations require ANY volunteer who comes near or works around children to
complete a criminal record check, regardless of the time spent working near or around them. This
requirement involves a Criminal Record Search, valid for 5 years, which includes a Vulnerable Sector
Search.

Steps to become a volunteer:

1. Pick up a volunteer package at our school office, fill out the required forms and return to the
school.
2. Once your form has been approved, have your criminal record check processed (see below)

Criminal Record Check Process:

Once you’ve completed steps 1 & 2 above, interested volunteers contact the School Board Office
reception desk @ 604.859.4891 to schedule a time to have their ID verified. You must provide 2 pieces
of I.D. (primary and secondary I.D.) to verify yourself along with your criminal record consent form. The
District's authorized contact submits the form to the CRRP for processing and will advise our school of
the results once they are received.

Once we receive your criminal record check clearance from HR, we will contact you to inform you that
you’ve been added to our approved volunteer list. At this time, you can start volunteering.
Thank you for your interest in becoming a volunteer in our school.
