What is a Vulnerable Sector Check?
A Vulnerable Sector Check must be carried out when any individual is applying to work in a paid or volunteer position where they will be in contact with children under the age of 18 or with vulnerable persons, defined as individuals who because of their age, a disability, or other circumstances, whether temporary or permanent, are in a position of dependence on others or are otherwise at greater risk than the general population of being harmed by persons in a position of authority or trust relative to them.
Some examples of such positions include: teachers, social workers, day-care workers, and children’s sports coaches.
The purpose of the vulnerable sector check is to determine the possible existence of a criminal record and/or a sexual offence conviction for which an individual has received a pardon. In some cases, fingerprints may be required for submission to the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records to complete the check.
