Vulnerable Sector Search
If your employment or volunteer activity will cause you to be in a position of Trust or Authority over a Vulnerable Persons (i.e. children, seniors, or people with disabilities), the "Consent for Persons Applying for Positions within the Vulnerable Section" needs to be completed on our Criminal Record and Vulnerable Sector Check Application .
The Vulnerable Sector search can only be run for employment or volunteer purposes within Canada.
The Vulnerable Sector search cannot be run for applicants under the age of 18 years old.
This search may require the submission of fingerprints to Ottawa. This search is based solely on the applicants' date of birth and gender.
For information on the vulnerable sector search and process:
Please note that the Saskatoon Police Service Criminal Record Check process requires a letter from the employer to detail why the position will require a vulnerable sector search. Section 6.3 of the Criminal Records Act stipulates that a vulnerable sector search must only be done relative to a specific position. To meet the legal requirements for a vulnerable sector search, the position must cause the person to have trust or authority over a child or vulnerable person. If the position does not meet the legal requirements for a vulnerable sector search, it is illegal for the Saskatoon Police Service to conduct one.
