Who is required to complete a Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector Check?
All staff and volunteers 19years of age or older.
I am a returning coach, staff or volunteer. Do I need to complete a NEW Criminal Record/Vulnerable Sector Check?
All Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector checks are valid for 36 months from the date stamped by an approved CRC provider. (i.e., if your check was completed/date stamped in September 2021 it’s valid until September 2024).
If your check has expired (older than 36 months) a NEW Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector check is required.
I completed a Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector Check with the Criminal Records Review Program and the check is valid for 5 years? Why is it only valid for 36 months with NWSC?
NWSC follows BC Soccer’s Criminal Record Check standards and therefore, requires a new Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector Check on file every 36 months.
How do I complete a NEW Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector Check?
I received an error message “The ONLINE system could not complete my request to initiate a Criminal Record / Vulnerable Sector Check”?
If you receive the message below:
Print out the form as directed
Email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange a place to meet to verify your identification. Please note this must be done in person in order for the risk manager to sign off/validate the form. We cannot accept emailed forms
Bring photo ID.
I am required to go into my Local Municipal Police Department / RCMP for additional screening but there’s a fee?
NWSC will reimburse this fee, please contact the Risk Manager via email before you go in for instructions.
