Police Vulnerable Sector Check Policy
page updated April 12 2022
OMHA and Hockey Canada requires that all volunteers (coaches, trainers, managers and on ice helpers) have a current Police Vulnerable Sector Records Check (PVSC).
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
Question 1: Are you 18 years or older?
Yes: See Question 2
No: PVSC is NOT required, nothing further is needed
Question 2: Do you have a police check that is newer than March 1st 2022? (less than 6 months old)
Yes: Make sure OMHA Rep/Risk Management has a copy. Nothing further is needed.
No: Proceed to question 3
Question 3: Do you have a police check that is newer than September 1 2019?
Yes: Make sure OMHA Rep/Risk Management has a copy and complete the Criminal Offence declaration form. Criminal_Offence_Declaration_Form_2020 and submit (see details below)
If you need a new PVSC:
No: You need a new PVSC. See below.
This process can take several weeks
To Submit PVSC and Declaration Forms:
- and you live within St. Marys or Perth county, you will need to get your PVSC done by Stratford Police. This can be done ONLINE: Stratford Police Records Check Website
- or you live in Oxford or Middlesex counties, you will need to go to your local police detachment (OPP)
Please SCAN and EMAIL a copy to [email protected]
We no longer collect and file paper copies
