Police Record Checks

In order to provide Emotional Support as a Chat/Phone/Video Responder at Certified Listeners Society, you will be required to obtain a Level 3 Vulnerable Sector Check (VS) from your local police service.

To learn more about police record checks, you can read an article by Volunteer Ottawa here, or visit the Ministry of Solicitor General’s website by clicking here.

NOTE 1: Any disclosure of vulnerable sector involvement or criminal record on the police check will not necessarily prevent a volunteer from a role at Certified Listeners Society. Decisions will be made on an individual basis, in compliance with the Ontario Human Rights Code. All information collected will remain confidential and police check records will be destroyed once verified.

NOTE 2: Each Police Service charges its own fees for Police Record Checks; you will be responsible for these fees. We have no control over their fees.
