The Criminal Records Review Act requires that any individual hired for employment involving work with children must provide the employer with a criminal record check. Existing employees must undergo a criminal record check at least once every 5 years.
This requirement does not apply to employees who hold a certificate of qualification issued under the Teachers Act, as they provide their criminal record checks to the Teacher Regulation Branch.
School district human resources staff will support employees in the district process required to secure a criminal record check, and will remind existing employees when they must provide a new criminal record check. The costs incurred to obtain a criminal record check through the district process will be paid by the school district for existing employees.
