Vulnerable Sector Checks – Canada

Vulnerable Sector Checks -RCMP

We recently completed the testing and administration portion of the vulnerable screening services and as a result we are now able to do fingerprinting for this purpose. There is a slight difference from processing regular fingerprint submissions in that the results need to be returned to a police station. It’s not so bad because any police station will do. But not all are interested in participating because some still prefer to perform their own vulnerable sector checks. Allowing private companies to do vulnerable sector checks is somewhat new.

The National Pardon Centre is one of only 4 direct connect clients of the RCMP in Canada. We are a direct connect client which means we have our own server connected directly to RCMP civil fingerprinting in Ottawa.

If you need vulnerable sector check and fingerprinting services and you live in Montreal, Toronto or Calgary we would be happy to help out. Drop by one of our walk in centers and get this going today.

I require a Vulnerable Sector search for employment, for a job in Ontario. I am currently in Montreal, but also a resident of Alberta>Where do I obtain this, and what are the costs?

Unfortunately we don’t handle those in Montreal. You should contact the Montreal police.

Kind regards,

I am a certified US teacher interested in teaching in the Northwest Territories. To do so, I need a vulnerable sector check. Can anyone tell me the best place to do this? I haven’t been able to find any kind of step-by-step or checklist on how to complete this for someone in my position. Thanks in advance.

Hi John,

You need to start this process with your local police station. Drop in there and ask to get it going.

I am in a similar situation. I am Canadian American and have accepted a job to work in the Northwest Territories that requires a vulnerable sector check from NY – as that was the last state I previously lived in. However, since there is no such thing called a “vulnerable sector check” in NY, I’m not sure what to do to get the equivalent done. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

Hi Caley,

I am afraid I can’t tell you what it is you require. I would suggest speaking to someone qualified in America. Possibly an immigration specialist.
