• those volunteer helpers/resource people, including parents/guardians, who are screened as outlined in the Screening Level Chart (see Section 3001.2); and
• invited youth who attend no more than two meetings to sample the Scouting program.
Organizations that provide programs to children and other vulnerable people must take reasonable measures to protect them. This is why many organizations have screening policies for staff and volunteers who have, or will have, contact with children or other vulnerable people.
A Police Records Check (PRC) is a Criminal Records Check as well as a search of the records held in the information database of a local police agency. The Police Records Check is one of the steps in Scouts Canada’s screening program.
Scouters completing a Police Reference Check through the OPP must first request the OPP Organization Letter – Request for Vulnerable Sector Screening by contacting Gary Seymour at firstname.lastname@example.org and giving their name, address and the position being applied for. The organization’s section on the form will be completed and returned to the individual to complete their portion of the form.
