Vulnerable Sector Check

posted Sep 12, 2018, 9:20 AM by Kellie.Anne Mathieson

Beginning September 2018, all volunteers, including parents, guardians, grand-parents, volunteers taking part in field trips, those working with students in schools, and those volunteering at events where they may be in isolation with students even for a brief period of time in the OCSB must complete a Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). Since the volunteers who distribute both milk and pizza are not alone in the classroom with students the VSC is not necessary for this activity.

Applying online is simple and free, with a letter from the school. This does not include same day service.  We suggest that if you plan to volunteer this year, you apply online as soon as possible by following the instructions at the link below.  Upon receipt of your VSC from the Ottawa Police, please e-mail it to

We will be sending hard copies of the information home with your child.
