Volunteer Training and Record Checks

All volunteers are required to complete yearly mandatory training in disability awareness, safe church policy, abuse prevention practices and emergency/fire safety. This training can be completed online at https://training.ccrc.on.ca/.

Based on our Safe Church policies, all volunteers also need a Record Check completed by Waterloo Regional Police Services every 5 years. The form only takes a few minutes to complete online and you can choose the location from which to pick up the completed Record Check. Once you have paid for the Record Check, submit the receipt to the Church Office for reimbursement. https://www.wrps.on.ca/en/services-reporting/background-or-record-checks.aspx

If you have previously submitted a Record Check, the Church Office has record of that and will notify you when you need to complete another one. If you are unsure, please email for confirmation.

The Abuse Prevention Policy, Fire Prevention Plan and other forms can be found on the Accessiblity, Forms and Policy page. If you have any questions, please contact Paula La Fontaine at lafontainepaula@gmail.com
