POLICE RECORD CHECKS

To attend Clinical/Field Placement and depending on your specific program’s Non-Medical Requirements, a student is asked to provide a Vulnerable Sector Police Record Check. A Vulnerable Sector Screening is intended for individuals seeking school placement opportunities with vulnerable persons. Each region has different application requirements; please ensure you have completed the application in the city in which you reside in. Police Services may experience a high volume of applications; therefore processing times may fluctuate and take up to 8-12 weeks to complete.

City of Toronto: Students DO NOT apply directly to the Toronto Police Service for a Police Record Check with vulnerable sector screen. Students require a “Consent to Disclosure of Personal Information” waiver form signed by the Dean, School of Health Sciences. This form can be obtained from the School of Health Sciences receptionist, located in the M Building - 2nd Floor entrance or the Office of Experiential Learning, Pre-placement Clearance Office in K201A. Mail your application to Toronto Police Service Headquarters – 40 College Street, Toronto, Ontario M5G 2J3 or submit your application in person at the Police Reference Check Program's "Drop Off Box" located in the lobby of 40 College Street. The results of your Vulnerable Sector Screen is mailed to you directly. Incomplete waiver forms and non-accepted forms of payment will be returned and this will delay your application process. 

Note: Toronto is the largest jurisdiction in Canada; therefore the Toronto Police Service experiences a higher volume of applications. Processing times may fluctuate and take up to 8-12 weeks for processing.
