Effective September 2021, all volunteers in the Hanover School Division must complete a Child Abuse Registry Check (CAR) and an enhanced Police Information Check (PIC) sometimes referred to as a criminal records check.

The enhanced PIC includes the Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC). The VSC is intended for positions in which an individual has authority over, or trust of, children or vulnerable persons. Children are defined as being anyone under the age of 18. Vulnerable persons are people who, because of their age, disability, or other circumstance, are more vulnerable than others.

Note: HSD volunteers with a current/valid Child Abuse Registry Check (as listed in our database) will need to undergo a Police Information Check / Vulnerable Sector Check to retain their approved volunteer status.
