Criminal Record and Judicial Matters Check (CRJMC) EMPLOYMENT / OTHER  $55 + tax ($62.15) VOLUNTEER  $25 + tax ($28.25)

A collection of offence information, including convictions, outstanding warrants, charges and judicial orders available from a local police agency's records management system and other systems/records where authorized.

This check is intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with agencies who require a criminal record check. The agency has determined that a search of pardoned sex offenders database is NOT required (i.e., border crossing or visa) therefore this check is NOT intended for applicants who are seeking volunteer and/or employment with vulnerable persons.

This check is intended for applicants who are involved as a volunteer, employee or in any situation where a basic PCRC is requested (e.g., Labourer).
