How to get started

Vulnerable Sector Check

Please note that all adult volunteers must agree to an OPP administered Vulnerable Sector Check. At your orientation, you will be given a letter to accompany your Police Vulnerable Sector Check (PVSC) application. Without this letter, you will have to pay the fee for the PVSC.
