WHERE TO OBTAIN A VULNERABLE SECTOR CHECK
1. Ontario Wide
• All Vulnerable Sector Checks (VSC) can be obtained by going directly your local police service.
• Majority of VSCs can also be obtained online through the Ontario Provincial Police (OPP), but you must live in an OPP-
   policed community.
• The OPP is not the police service jurisdiction for large urban centre including Toronto, the Greater Toronto Area (GTA),
   Hamilton, Niagara or Sudbury. If you live in these communities, you will need to contact your local police service of
   jurisdiction to request a VSC.
• You may be required to provide an OHF Letter Requesting Vulnerable Sector Check (download)

Team Officials under the age of 18
Due to changes imposed by the new Police Record Checks Reform Act (PRCRA) legislation, effective November 1st, 2018, a police check for persons under 18 years of age UNLESS applying for a position with a government agency (federal, provincial or municipal), will not be processed.

Therefore, applicants under the age of 18 will not be required to obtain a Police Record Check OR signing of a declaration form is not required.

Team Officials 18 years of age and over are required to submit a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC).

The renewal period for your VSC will be every 3 years. (Example: Year one VSSC, year two Criminal Offence Declaration Form, year three Criminal Offence Declaration Form and year four VSC.) All On Ice Officials must adhere to this Policy.

If you are a first-time Team Official 18 years of age and older you are required to submit your Vulnerable Sector Check through the process above.
