The Criminal Records Review Act ensures that people who work with or may potentially have unsupervised access to children or vulnerable adults undergo a criminal record check by the Criminal Records Review Program (CRRP).
A person whose criminal record suggests they present a risk of physical or sexual abuse to children or a risk of physical, sexual or financial abuse to vulnerable adults will not have access to these groups.
To support British Columbia’s non-profit sector, volunteer organizations that are not covered by the act, but have volunteers working with children or vulnerable adults, can have criminal record checks done by the CRRP for free.
Criminal record checks:
Please contact the Langley Volunteer Bureau at: info@LangleyVolunteers.ca and we will forward the CRC consent request form for you to complete and return to us.
IDENTITY VERIFICATION: Additionally, the CRRP will require: • Copies of two valid pieces of their ID; and • A photograph of passport quality: eyes open and clearly visible; mouth closed and not smiling; no shadows, glare or flash reflections; centered and squared; and taken within 6 months.
The Langley Volunteer Bureau will submit the CRC and Identification on your behalf to the Criminal Records Review Program.
If you have obtained a Criminal Record Check within the past 5 years, we have a form that you can fill out to share the information with us or the organization you are volunteering for.
There is no fee or charge to have a Criminal Record Check processed if you are volunteering.
