A Vulnerable Sector Verification is completed to protect persons who, because of age, disability, or other circumstances, whether temporary or permanent are (a) in a position of dependence on others or (b) are otherwise at a greater risk than the general population of being harmed by a person in a position or authority or trust relative to them. Multiple checks are done to ensure that screening measures are as comprehensive as possible.

A Vulnerable Sector Verification is used to verify the possible existence of a criminal record and  a sexual offence conviction for which an individual has received a pardon. In addition to a query of the RCMP National Repository of Criminal Records, a Vulnerable Sector Verification also includes:

  • A query of pardoned sex offender records in the National Repository of Criminal Records.
  • A query of investigative and intelligence records via the CPIC Investigative Data Bank and the CPIC Intelligence Data Bank.
  • A query of local police records where the applicant resides.
  • A requirement for the verification to be conducted by a police service of local jurisdiction where the applicant resides.

The verification and disclosure of pardoned sex offender records is pursuant to the Criminal Records Act. In some cases, fingerprints may be required if a name-based query is inconclusive as to the existence of a pardoned sex offender record.
