Criminal Reference Check (CRC) Review Process Considerations...
If your CRC contains charges, the Youth Certified Committee or its designate will determine if you are eligible to become Youth Certified.
As part of the review process, the Committee may gather information, with your consent, by way of phone calls or personal interviews with you and/or other persons or agencies. Committee assessment considerations include:
- Relationship of any convictions or charges to the key imperatives of becoming Youth Certified;
- Number and nature of the charges and/or convictions; and
- When the offences occurred.
Some offences which shall deem you ineligible to become Youth Certified are:
- Assault with a weapon
- Assault causing bodily harm
- Aggravated assault
- Sexual assault
- Sexual interference
- Sexual exploitation
- Invitation to sexual touching
- Making, distributing or possessing child pornography
- Prohibition or probation orders forbidding the individual from having contact with children under the age of 14 years
- Criminal offences for child or spousal abuse
- Luring a child
All other criminal record offences are subject to review by the Youth Certified Committee.
Being Youth Certified is a privilege and not a right. Any decision of the Committee shall be final and shall not be subject to appeal.
