NEW! Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check Policy Approved by Council

September 18, 2018

At its 93rd meeting, Council considered the information provided by legal counsel regarding a new law – the Police Record Check Reform Act (PRCRA) - and how it may impact the College’s registration requirements. 

The PRCRA comes into force in Ontario on November 1, 2018. It clarifies the previous inconsistencies between police forces regarding the scope and content of a criminal record check. Under the new law, there are three distinct types of background checks (now called “police record checks”): 
•    the Criminal Record Check
•    the Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check and; 
•    the Vulnerable Sector Check. 

The College’s current Criminal Background Check Policy requires applicants to provide a background check based on name and date of birth. As outlined above, under the new Act, the College may now request one of three defined types of police record check.

Based on the information provided by legal counsel, Council moved to amend the current policy to require applicants who apply for a Certificate of Registration on or after November 1, 2018 to provide a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check.  

The amended policy can be reviewed HERE.  

The Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check Process Guidelines outlines the process and procedures relevant to requesting and submitting a Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check as part of the application for a Certificate of Registration.
