Executive Director

 
SUBJECT: Criminal Record Check Information Sheet
 


Please note the following information intended to assist members in addressing inquiries relative to the Criminal Records Check and Vulnerable Persons Check required by BC Hockey Policies and Regulations. 
 
The following questions and answers regarding criminal record checks and vulnerable person checks have been compiled from questions that BC Hockey has received.
 
1.      Where can I find information about BC Hockey’s criminal records check and vulnerable persons check requirements?
 
A.     The BC Hockey Criminal Records Check Policy can be found in Section 1 of the BC Hockey Policy Manual. If you do not have a hard copy of the policy manual, you can view it online at https://www.bchockey.net/Administration/ResourcesBCHockeyPolicyManual.aspx
 
2.     Does BC Hockey require anyone other than HCOP officials over the age of 18 to complete criminal records check and vulnerable persons check?
 
A.     Yes. HCOP Officials who are 18 years or older are the largest group of BC Hockey members that complete criminal records check and vulnerable persons check for the Branch. Other BC Hockey positions that must complete Branch criminal records check and vulnerable persons check include, but are not limited to, executive members, district and divisional coordinators, course conductors, high performance staff, Major Midget League staff and office staff.
 
3.     Why doesn’t BC Hockey require every minor hockey coach, manager, etc. to complete a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check?
 
A.     Because Minor Hockey Associations appoint positions such as team coaches and managers, whereas an official is considered a Branch appointment, it is the responsibility of the MHA to develop their own criminal records check and vulnerable persons check policy to cover those members. BC Hockey highly recommends that all of its member associations develop such a policy.
 
4.     How often does someone need to have a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check done for BC Hockey?
 
A.     For most positions, a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check must be repeated every three seasons. For BC Hockey board members and permanent staff, a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check must be repeated every five seasons. Please keep in mind that an association may require that a new criminal records check and vulnerable persons check be completed more frequently.
 
5.     How is it determined to which season a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check will be credited (ie, what dates are used to define a season)?
 
A.     For criminal records check and vulnerable persons check, BC Hockey defines the season for submission as May 1 through April 30. However, a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check will expire on July 31 of the expiry year. This gives a three-month overlap for individuals to renew their criminal records check and vulnerable persons check without it expiring.
·   For example: For a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check that needs to be renewed every three seasons, a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check completed on May 1, 2011 will be considered as submitted for the 2011-2012 season and will expire July 31, 2014. However, a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check completed April 30, 2011 will be credited to the 2010-2011 season and will, therefore, expire on July 31, 2013.
 
6.     How can I tell if my criminal records check and vulnerable persons check is up to date?
 
A.     Criminal records check and vulnerable persons check that have been satisfactorily completed for BC Hockey (and the record is either clear or OK) will be posted in an individual’s HCR (Hockey Canada Registry) profile and, where applicable, eLearning profile. It will show up under clinics and under qualifications and have an expiry date. If an individual has an eLearning account, that individual can view his or her own profile. In addition, all registrars have access to relevant profiles on the HCR. Individuals who don’t have an eLearning account can contact their registrar.
 
7.     What methods are available for completing a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check for BC Hockey?
 
A.     Criminal Records Check and Vulnerable Persons Checks can be completed by attending a police detachment.
·   When a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check is completed through a police detachment, BC Hockey must be sent the original. The only exception is that a police detachment may fax the criminal records check and vulnerable persons check directly to BC Hockey, and it must be obvious that the fax was sent by a police detachment. All other faxes, copies and scans will not be accepted.
 
8.     Why won’t BC Hockey accept a fax, copy or scan of a criminal records check and vulnerable persons check completed through a detachment?
 
A.     In the event that an unscrupulous individual attempts to alter the results of his or her CRCand VPC, it is more difficult to tell when it comes in via fax, copy or scan. We have received at least one criminal records check and vulnerable persons check that had white out on it. Fortunately we were able to confirm with the detachment that t
