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
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.
