Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we ask our volunteer candidates NOT to visit their police service branch for police record checks at this time.

Please submit a Swore Affidavit in place of the Police Record Check.

Swore Affidavit

Police Services are closed due to the COVID-19 Pandemic. Please provide a Swore Affidavit with your application in place of the official Police Record Check. You will be asked to provide the proper Police Record Check once the COVID-19 Pandemic is under control and government offices reopen.

Please enter your name, city, province and today’s date. You will receive an email with the Affidavit as a PDF attachment. Sign it and submit it in place of the Police Record Check.
