Criminal Background Check

The Simcoe Muskoka Catholic District School Board has the responsibility to provide a safeand secure working and learning environment for students and employees. It will comply with the requirements for the collection of personal information as described in regulation 521/01 of the Education Act.

Required under the Act is the submission of a satisfactory Criminal Background Check (CBC) for all individuals who work, volunteer orprovide service at the school board.

It is the policy of the Board that all employees/volunteers provide the satisfactory CBC prior to engaging in the activity.

At Our Lady of Grace, there are 2 options to getting a CBC completed. 

If you are a member of the Military, you go to the local MP's office and indicate that you will be volunteering at the school.  They will have you fill out the form to get your CBC and Vulnerable Screening completed.

If you are a civilian, you can come to the school and get a letter from the office indicating that you are volunteering.  You then take the letter to the local OPP station to get a CBC and Vulnerable Screening completed.  (Usually the letter from the school will eliminate or reduce the cost to complete the check.)
