If I have a criminal record, who will have access to this information?

If you have a criminal record, but it is not relevant to the protection of children or vulnerable adults, the Ministry of Public Safety and Solicitor General does not release this information. If you have a relevant record the College is informed that there is a relevant record but no other information is provided. If the Deputy Registrar of the Criminal Records Review Program determines there is no risk to children or vulnerable adults, the College is informed of the Deputy Registrar’s decision and may request a copy of the written reasons for the decision. If the Deputy Registrar determines that a risk to children or vulnerable adults exists, the registrant, the College and the employer(s) are notified. The College would take action using existing Registration/Inquiry and Disciplinary procedures however; information would be protected as it falls within the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act
