Police Vulnerable Sector Check (Georgina Minor Hockey Association)

PrintPolice Vulnerable Sector Check
A Police Vulnerable Sector Check must be done on any and all volunteers who are a member of the team coaching staff or who go on the ice with the children. This includes Head Coach, Assistant Coaches, Managers, Trainers and volunteers. A Police Vulnerable Sector Check is good for a 4 year period.

Each year after you have completed your PVSC, we will ask you to sign a Criminal Offense Declaration Form to ensure that your status has not changed.

The objective of a PVSC is to protect Hockey Canada, the OMHA, the GMHA and most importantly our children from the prospective threat that a "person in authority" might present if that individual has a criminal record that gives cause for concern.


Additional information on the PVSC form can be found at the York Regional Police site .

Here's the steps that you need to follow:
Contact Yvonne in the GMHA office by email ([email protected])and she will send you a personalized authorization letter from the GMHA that you are a volunteer for us. If you end up having to go to the second stage of the police check and have to get finger printed this letter will save you an additional $75.00 charge.

New this year:  If you haven't required fingerprints in the past you can apply for the PVSC online 

Take this letter and government issues photo ID (see York Regional Police site to see what is valid but a Driver's License or Passport will work). Obtain the PVSC form online or from the counter, fill it out and present it IN PERSON with ID to the below locations.


Community Resource Centre

10720 Yonge Street Richmond Hill, ON
Monday to Friday: 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Saturdays: 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Ensure that the entire form has been completed. There is no longer a requirement to have the form signed by any GMHA board personnel.

Each applicant will need to pay a $30.00 fee when they submit their form to the Police (certified cheque or money order made payable to York Regional Police, Visa, MasterCard, debit card or cash).

The next step potentially is a finger print comparison if your name or birthdate matches that of anyone with a Criminal Record. If this is required, present the personalized letter you got from Yvonne)

Each applicant will receive a PVSC in the mail. Once you have your PVSC bring it to Yvonne and she will take a photocopy of it and hand you back the original. Please hang on to your original PVSC form in case you need it again in the future.

Your PVSC is good for 3 years.
