Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC)

The Literacy Group of Waterloo Region (TLG) is committed to creating a positive and supportive learning and volunteering environment. This environment must be a culture of care, safety and personal responsibility.

Volunteer screening is an important part of TLG’s commitment to a safe culture. TLG’s screening includes a series of formal and informal initial and ongoing steps. TLG models its screening process around the Volunteer Canada 10 Steps of Screening.

As part of the screening process, all volunteers are required to complete a mandatory Vulnerable Sector Police Record Check. The completion of this records check does not automatically mean the volunteer will be eligible for the position and will still be subject to TLG’s full screening process.

In order to support the application process, volunteers can download the VSC Guidelines and refer to the VSC Policy for more information. Please note that only current volunteers of and applications received before January 1st 2019 are eligible to the $10 refund. Please use the Volunteer VSC Expense Form. All volunteers applying after this date must cover the $10 application fee.

TLG works to support any member of the community to volunteer with us, so if for any reason a volunteer is unable to pay the fee, they can contact the Executive Director to discuss their options.
