Criminal Record Review Program (CRRP)
Volunteers of Curl BC Member Facilities can complete their Criminal Record Checks (CRC) through the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP). The CRRP provides criminal record checks free-of-charge as part of the BC Government’s ongoing commitment to support the non-profit sector. Additionally, at no cost, volunteers may share the results of their clear checks with other registered organizations through the CRRP online service reducing the need for multiple checks.
To further enhance the protection of children, the CRRP will require fingerprints for those who share a date of birth and gender with a pardoned sex offender (vulnerable sector check) as per the national RCMP policy. These prints will be at the applicant’s expense as required by their local policy agency. However, in almost all circumstances, an individual will only be required to be fingerprinted once every ten years through the program.
If there is an issue with the criminal record check, the volunteer will be required to go through the current process through the local police service.
- Volunteers can contact Kim Dennis to provide Volunteer CRC Letter to take to their local police service.
