Criminal record check

Students must complete a Criminal Record Check (CRC) from the Ministry of Justice if their placement requires contact with vulnerable children or adults. It should be completed prior to their first placement, every five years and upon any charge or conviction.

In addition: 

  • CRC cost is the responsibility of the student.
  • CRC should be kept on file by your educational institution.
  • False information will result in the termination of your practicum experience.
  • Informing your educational institution and your placement site of any status change incurred during your practice experience.
  • In the event of a pre-existing or current charge or conviction, VCH will decide if your practice experience will be impacted.
