Criminal Record Check - Children and Vulnerable Adults

Provincial Requirements for Practice Education

To comply with BC legislation, all students registered in a post-secondary educational program that requires placements with vulnerable children or vulnerable adults must complete a full criminal record check (CRC) prior to their first Practice Education placement.

Students who do not have CRC – Children and Vulnerable Adults  clearance from the BC Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General will not be able to complete any required clinical or ambulance placements and subsequently be unable to complete the program. 

Please note that a clear Vulnerable Sector Check by the RCMP or your local police does not meet the requirements of the legislation.
