Police Screening for Volunteers

JA-Velodrome Event-1

Why do I need a Vulnerable Sector Check?

A clear vulnerable sector and background check is required to volunteer for JA Central Ontario, as we have a responsibility to ensure the safety and wellbeing of everyone we work with. We follow JA Canada's national safeguarding policy, and the policies of our school boards, to provide a safe environment for everybody, especially the young people we serve.

All of our volunteers must go through Vulnerable Sector Check with their local police force. This check provides screening for individuals who intend on working or volunteering with vulnerable people - like young people. This process also includes a full police background check.
