How to Apply For A Police Vulnerable Sector Check

    1. All Executive members, convenors, team officials and on ice volunteers 18 years of
    age and older (prior to being rostered to a team) with NMHA are required to obtain a
    Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) as per NMHA PVSS (Police Vulnerable
    Sector Screening) Policy.

    2. For instructions on how to apply for a PVSC letter, application form, customer
    service hours and YRP locations that provide this service, visit the YRP website
    Note: Volunteers who do not live in York Region will be required to obtain a PVSC
    from the jurisdiction in which they live.

    3. Members of the public can now apply online for a Police Vulnerable Sector Check @ Two pieces of government issued identification
    that is not expired of which one piece of identification must have a photograph is
    required to be submitted.

    4. NOTE: When dealing with York Regional Police you will also need to submit at the
    same time with their application a letter from NMHA stating your position with NMHA
    and that you are a non-paid volunteer. A copy of a generic request letter is available
    on our website for you to download which is already signed and you will simply need
    to fill in the blanks. Alternatively, you can obtain this letter by contacting our office by
    email at [email protected] With this association letter you will be charged the
    volunteer fee for your clearance letter and additional fees if required to submit
    fingerprints will be waived.

    5. Each applicant is responsible to pay the applicable volunteer fee as set by YRP.

    6. Part of the screening process now involves querying a database of pardoned sexual
    offences. If one’s date of birth matches the date of birth of a person of the same sex
    that may have been pardoned of a sexual offence, fingerprints must be submitted to
    continue the process. If applying online and fingerprints are necessary the online
    process will stop and applicant must attend in person to complete the application. If
    applying in person fingerprints will be taken immediately on site.

    7. Each applicant will receive a response letter from the Police, the original reply must
    be submitted to the NMHA office for this process to be complete and the applicant
    approved. The response letter should be placed in an envelope marked PVSC and
    the individual's name placed on the front of the envelope and submitted to the
    hockey office. Letter is kept by NMHA and filed at our lawyer’s office. It is best to
    make a copy for your records as this letter will not be returned.

    8. Lawyer’s office will inform NMHA of any volunteers that do not meet the eligibility
    requirements. Any member that does not meet the eligibility requirements will be
    refused a position of service with NMHA.
