All applicants for initial registration are required to provide a criminal record check that includes a vulnerable sector search, a child abuse registry check, and an adult abuse registry check (collectively the “Background Checks”) as part of the application process.
Criminal Records Check
Canadian residents must submit a Canadian Police Information Center (CPIC) check. If you currently live or have lived outside of Canada within the last six months, you must provide a criminal record check based on a nationwide search from the appropriate law enforcement agency in that country. This process may include providing fingerprints. The police agency in that jurisdiction can provide you with more information on the process and any fees. These criminal records checks must include a vulnerable sector search, or the equivalent in another country. Criminal Record Checks are considered valid for one year from the date they are issued.
If you are applying as a new applicant to the College, the criminal record checks submitted for these applications must be dated within six months at the time of application.
Child Abuse Registry Check and Adult Abuse Registry Check
If you live in a jurisdiction that does not have a child abuse registry and/or an adult abuse registry, these registration requirements may be waived by the College. If you currently reside in Manitoba, you must submit a child abuse and adult abuse registry check upon application. Child and adult abuse registry checks are considered valid for one year from the date they were issued.
If you are applying as a new applicant to the College, the child and adult abuse registry checks submitted for these applications must be dated within six months at the time of application.
