Police Check

We require coaches at a youth event to have an acceptable police check. We have registered with BackCheck.net/ontcurl to provide an alternative method to obtain a police check without using your local police station. In most cases, it will provide results next day from Canadian Police. However a “Not Clear” result will still require you to initiate a local police check.
