Electronic Criminal Record Check Online Service

The Ministry of Justice provides an electronic Criminal Record Check service through School District 85. Criminal Record Check applications are completed and submitted electronically. The Ministry charges a $28 fee for this service. Applicants can pay the $28 fee with a credit card, cash, cheque or money order made payable to School District No. 85.  

To receive the CRC application form and further instructions, please contact Janelle Burns, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent at the School Board Administration Office via email or by telephone (250)-949-6618. 

It is very important that the applicant enter their personal information accurately and completely. The $28 fee and one piece of valid government issued photo ID will be required at the time of submitting the application. Once applications are submitted to the Ministry, results will be forward to the School District Office and may take up to 4 weeks.

School Volunteers

Every person who wishes to volunteer in a school must obtain a criminal record check completed by the local R.C.M.P. The completed form must be provided to each school where the person wishes to volunteer.  The R.C.M.P. may charge a fee for this service.  The Board requires volunteers to obtain a new criminal record check every two years.
