The Criminal Records Review Act requires students registered in a post-secondary program, where they may be working with children and/or vulnerable persons, must have a Criminal Record Check (CRC) conducted by the Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General. The Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General is the authorized body under the Act to review offences and make a determination of risk.
Camosun College only accepts CRC from the Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General
If you are accepted into a program at Camosun which requires successful completion of a Criminal Record Check, we will email you and provide the necessary information on how to complete the process.
It is important to note, that any student found to be at risk by the Ministry will not be able to participate in a work integrated learning experience (e.g. clinical placement, practicum, internship, work experience, co-op, job shadow observational, some in-class practice exercises, etc.) and other aspects of a program, and may therefore be unable to participate in or complete the program.
Camosun College is not responsible for processing CRC applications or for application turnaround times. CRC’s may be governed by external bodies and may be updated as mandated, without notice.
